The Vertex ultra-slim metal detector from Fortress Technology, Inc. is designed for inline processing such as in snack applications where space is limited. It detects metal contaminants in freefalling products prior to final packaging. Products are gravity fed through the detector’s aperture, which is typically situated between a multihead weigher and a vertical form/fill/seal machine, before being bagged. Vertex suits applications where packaging is metallic or too large for standard detectors. The system uses Core DSP technology to detect metal contaminants including pieces of wire, shavings and swarf.
