SNB Electronic Services have provided service and calibration on Inspection Equipment to packaging manufacturers across the UK for over 20 years.

Packaging production is often high volume with a large degree of automation. Reliability is crucial for Inspection Equipment in this industry as 24/7 production is common place. Due to the manufacturing processes bulk detection at the end of the production line is widely used. Detection levels are frequently challenged for this type of production because the packaging is usually sold to further producers who later inspect individual items at higher levels.

Please contact the SNB Sales Team if you require advice on your specific requirements.

The following types of Inspection Equipment are common place in the packaging industry;

In-line Metal Detector/ Metal Detector Conveyor System

These systems are typically found near the end of the production process prior to final outer packaging.

End of Line Bulk Metal Detector

Bulk Metal Detection Systems are commonly placed after the product has been wrapped and the aperture is usually much larger in size. They can also be found on lines supplying bulk product for further processing elsewhere. Lower levels of detection are normally associated to this type of detector due to the larger apertures.

Freefall Gravity Metal Detection

Inspection Equipment for use with plastic pellets or granules is commonly seen in the packaging industry. Good quality Metal Detection Equipment is critical here as performance can vary dramatically between brands.
