Twin Lane

SNB design and build robust Metal Detection Systems in line with the latest retailer codes of practice. When choosing a Twin Lane Metal Detection System from SNB our aim is for it to meet or exceed key targets specified in your production requirements, engineering and quality standards. All SNB Twin Lane Metal Detection Systems are designed and built in-house at our Manufacturing Facility in Leeds. Our components such as electrical enclosures or aluminium platform sides are manufactured at our Electrical and Engineering facilities in Luton and Bathgate.

The requirement for Twin Lane Metal Detection Systems is becoming increasingly necessary to handle new improved high rate packaging lines. In order to maximize production rates packaging machines are frequently outputting two or more lanes of product in high succession. To keep production rates at their optimum, Metal Detection Systems often have to accommodate these product flows directly after case packers before final cartoning machines. If space is at a premium, preventing the staggering of the lanes for individual Metal Detection Systems, then the SNB Twin-Lane Metal Detection Systems can provide the ideal solution.

On each SNB Twin-Lane Metal Detection System a single framework hosts multiple search heads or a single multiple aperture search head depending on your application requirements. Each lane of product is then individually inspected and rejected with independent fail-safe monitoring. This proves as a far more acceptable approach to retailers than the traditional method of sending multiple lanes of product through a wide single aperture detector, something which can immediately cause difficulty with identifying detected product.

SNB Twin-Lane Metal Detector

Receiving a new twin-lane metal detector for your production lines only take six simple steps with SNB:

  • 1) SALES – To get the ball rolling, we will arrange a call or zoom meeting with our customer. SNB will ask for information regarding the products that will be running on the metal detector and any retailer specifications requirements.
  • 2) QUOTE – Once we have all the information needed, our sales team will work together with our design team to send across a formal quote.
  • 3) CAD – After the thumbs up has been given from our customer, SNB’s CAD team will get to work drafting a design to send across. We ask all customers to check the design and send back a signed copy for us to be able to proceed.
  • 4) BUILD – Now that CAD has been approved, the SNB workshop engineers will start to build your new twin-lane metal detector. Across our three sites, the framework, CNC, belts, control panels and guards will be built bespoke for the system.
  • 5) PDI – After all the finishing touches have been put on your new twin-lane metal detector, you will be invited to PDI the new system. This allows all our customers the chance to see the metal detector before delivery day.
  • 6) DELIVERY – Finally, one of our SNB service engineers will deliver and commission your new twin-lane metal detector. On the day, the engineer will set up the unit and show operators the basics on how to use the unit. All our new metal detectors come with 12 month warranty, test sticks with certificates of conformity and a calibration certificate.
