This product is used for in-line detection of ferrous metals. This machine is used mainly for inspection of food products such as cake mixes, cereals, etc. designed for USDA 3A washdown environments using caustic cleaning agents. Electrical enclosure is a NEMA 4X design. Disruptions in the magnetic field are detected when a metal object passes through the aperture. Solid participated from the beginning through build and test of the first prototype. Involvement included conceptual layout development, mechanical engineering, assembly and testing. Multiple sizes were designed, continued through setting up manufacturing procedures, designing and making assembly fixtures and training assembly personnel in China.
For this project, Solid provided our expertise in the following fields:
