In plastics processing plants, conveyor belts with integrated metal detectors are used for the protection of comminution machines such as cutting mills and shredders. The conveyor belt systems of the PLASTICON series have been specifically designed and built for this purpose.
The PLASTICON system inspects piece goods or bulk materials (moulded parts, blow-moulded parts, reject parts, sprues, etc.) for metal contamination.
Lateral guides with brush seals prevent small parts from getting under the conveyor belt. When a metal is detected the conveyor belt is stopped or reversed.
A range of different metal detector units can be used depending on the required scanning sensitivity and the height of the material on the belt.
- Detects magnetic and non-magnetic metal contaminations, even if such contaminations are enclosed in the product.
- Reduces costs caused by machine damage and production losses.
- Guarantees product quality.
- Complete solution from one source.
