Recently added to some retailer specifications the requirement for a 'Best Sensitivity' Check may be requested for your site. Although the structure of the test is nothing new to industry the requirement to have it documented at this level is now necessary for Audit purposes.
This will entail each and every product being set and tested for optimum performance on the customers’ existing Metal Detection Equipment. All limiting factors for sensitivity are detailed and recommendations are put forward to further improve results where possible. Metal Detection Search Heads are extremely sensitive in order to be able to detect the levels commonly seen in today's standards. As a result of this they are susceptible to many influences both internal and external. Limiting factors are detailed in the Best Sensitivity exercise and highlight many areas including, but not limiting to, product effects, application restrictions, environmental influences, search head design limitations and operational errors.
Our Engineers will require access to each and every product on the production lines for the duration of testing.
