The co. initiates its own manufacture of metal detectors by debuting the AP-MDT, a tunnel-style, conveyorized metal detector geared toward food products. To be built to custom specifications required by individual packaging applications, the machine is said to be designed with the smallest possible aperture to obtain exceptional results. Features include variable programming, a choice of audio and/or visual alarms, belt-stopping features and manual or automated reject mechanisms. The co. says the machine will be available as a portable unit on casters and tuned for a minimum of vibration interference, to exceed the standard metal-free zone for most metal detectors by a minimum of 25 percent and to conform to meat and dairy requirements.
