Linking detection systems to computer systems that can generate permanent records is important not only in helping identify trouble spots in the process, but also in providing documentation of proper quality control procedures if litigation ever arises, says Morgan of Advanced Detection Systems
The compact Model 9100 from Advanced Detection Systems
, Milwaukee, can flash a warning light or halt the conveyor when metal is detected.
Marsing approached Advanced Detection Systems with the application and soon the two companies were working together to find the optimal design that met Sartori's stringent requirements.
The crucial concern for Sartori was the assurance that Advanced Detection Systems would be able to custom design the conveyor and reject system to meet the food processor's sensitivity specifications and facilitate the speed and spacing of its products.
Soon it became apparent to Marsing that Advanced Detection Systems was going to provide the right solution for his company's needs.
For Advanced Detection Systems that meant designing a machine that was capable of inspecting products from 1lb to 25lbs in various packaging sizes, while achieving the result of maximum sensitivity and pinpoint rejection.
During the design phase, Advanced Detection Systems configures the internal software for optimum detection based on the exact product effect signature as determined during product testing.
