Featuring a full-color touch screen, membrane key panel and product inspection data collection capability, the Mettler Toledo Signature metal detector is designed for cost-effective easy integration into food production lines. When Signature is combined with material handling systems such as conveyors, product inspection can be fully automated.
Signature Detectors can be integrated with a wide range of standard or custom conveyor systems, enabling automated on-line inspection. Designed to perform and be maintained in a variety of food manufacturing environments, Signature Detectors are available in a variety of sizes, finishes and sealing standards. They can readily detect even the most difficult to detect non-magnetic stainless steels and non-spherical fine wire contaminants.
An optional sophisticated, yet simple, set-up routine allows end users to configure Performance Validation Routine (PVR) testing to their own needs. Users can choose to test on a time base or pack-count basis. The screen will change to the PVR screen automatically when the testing is due or overdue. Operating in conjunction with a Reject Confirmation Unit (RCU), the system provides the security and reliability to meet all Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards.
