The metal detection system Mitus® offers users a whole new level of foreign object detection: Thanks to its flexible modulation feature MiWave, the inspection solution from Minebea Intec reliably detects contaminated products of a wide range of sizes, shapes and compositions, thereby preventing needless incorrect rejections. This ensures maximum product safety and efficiency on the production line. First introduced at interpack 2023, the metal detector Mitus is available now.
With the new metal detection system Mitus, Minebea Intec offers a high-precision inspection solution for detecting foreign objects in almost all applications in the food and drinks industry. Thanks to its flexible modulation feature MiWave, the system ignores high product effects caused by product shape, size and composition, and minimises incorrect separations in the process. This enables Mitus to reliably detect foreign objects. Another impressive feature of the metal detector is the variety of models available, which ensures it can be easily integrated into existing systems.
In the food industry, reliable metal detection devices make a difference in how effectively they offset product effects, i.e. how the product itself affects the electromagnetic field. The size of the product effect depends on a range of factors, including product shape, size, temperature, moisture and the concentration of ingredients, particularly the salt content of the product. Generally speaking, if these properties change, it can lead to unexpected product effects, which can pose problems for conventional metal detectors. Flexibility is the key to success here. Mitus handles this challenge thanks to its flexible modulation feature MiWave. MiWave artificially modulates transmitter waves and intelligently resolves and analyses the receiver spectrum. This enables Mitus to automatically minimise the problem of incorrect rejections and therefore provide maximum detection sensitivity for foreign objects made from ferrous and non-ferrous metals, stainless steels and light metals like aluminium.
Said Linus Dellweg, Global Product Manager, Minebea Intec: “With Mitus we are offering users a premium metal detection solution: as a critical control point, it ensures that foreign objects are reliably detected despite high and variable product effects. Users can also rely on our products being of premium ‘Made in Germany’ quality: we have now been manufacturing detection solutions for over seven decades, with consumers and manufacturers alike benefiting from our reliable product inspection technology.” For more visit minebea-intec.com
