Plastics processors know how important the utilization and uptime of expensive equipment such as injection moulding machines, extruders and blow moulding machines is for their business. Avoiding unscheduled downtimes caused, for example, by metal contaminants in the granulate is an absolute must. Therefore, metal detectors have become an important component in production lines of the plastics industry.
The white paper "Two important factors when buying a metal detector for plastics processing machines" from Sesotec is about answering two questions that are often not given enough attention when buying a metal detector, apart from detection accuracy and price:
1. How easy is it to install the metal detector in the production line?
2. How easy is the operation of the device for employees?
The white paper also contains a checklist to check whether a metal detector is both easy to install and easy to operate.
