Manufacturers who treat their metal detectors as a stand-alone unit could be missing a trick, writes Phil Brown, European Sales Director at Fortress Technology. The saying ‘no man is an island’ is equally applicable to machinery – particularly in a packaging line context – where machines rarely operate in isolation, and usually interface with up-or down-stream equipment. This is certainly true of metal detectors, which can easily be integrated with weighers, baggers and factory management systems, allowing users to reap the benefits that can be gleaned from a more joined-up approach to line design.
