Modern industrial metal detectors have been described as some of the lesser successful machines in auditing tests and examinations, with up to 75% of audits reportedly encountering some type of non-conformance; however, manufacturers can keep their companies out of this statistic by incorporating proper operator training and accurate record keeping. Effective and standardized testing procedures, and the knowledge of how the three metal detection applications function with regard these procedures, can greatly ease the stresses of the auditing process.
Metal detection technology, commonly used in the safety and quality inspections of many products, has found a home in the food and production industry. Due to the technology’s accuracy in finding tramp metal many manufacturers have embraced metal detection in their business. For this efficient and developing technology, the list of its applications in production lines grows with every day.
