   Vibration and electrical noise resistant

Metal detectors look for fluctuation within magnetic fields the product passes through the detector head. Since the magnetic fields are affected by external sources such as floor vibration and inverters from nearby machines, a metal detectors must be designed to handle these challenges. With this in mind, Anritsu’s detection heads are designed to provide high sensitivity without sacrificing repeatability and reliability.

   The FOCUS function

Metal contaminants come in all shapes and sizes such as wires, shavings and flakes. The FOKUS function delivers enhanced detection of those hard – to – detect real world contaminants.

*Detection enhancement may vary depending on contaminant types.


   High sensitivity detection of both ferrous and non – ferrous metal

Anritsu’s patented dual – frequency technology is optimized for both ferrous and non – ferrous metal simultaneously. With the improved auto – learn process, Anritsu systems analyse more than 10.000combinations of frequencies and algorithms to provide the best detection possible.

 Increase quality and protect your brand reputation

Smart Guide Function - Ideal for (CCP) HACCP, IFS, BRC, SQF, FSSC 22000

Metal detectors are considered a must-have control point (CCP) in HACCP programs, and they must perform the detection of metal foreign object in your products to make sure the metal detector is working properly. When you turn on this feature - Smart Guide. Smart Guide in metal detector performs performance checks in easy-to-understand format. It can be set so that the metal detector would stop if machine fails during the testing of metal test standard. These steps must be taken when turning the machine on, off, or replacing the product. Everything on the screen is displayed. Also, operator training is minimized.



Confirmation of rejection

Not only should the product with a metal particle / foreign object be determined, it should be properly removed from the line / discarded. Anritsu rejection confirmation ensures that the rejected product, if not removed from the line and crosses the photo sensor, stops the line. This ensures 100% removal of the negative product from the product line.

Daily inspection report

Simplified data and long management allows quick response to retailers or customer quality inquires.
