Unmatched Efficiency &
Risks Reduction

With increasing quality standards set by retailers and ever-changing COP (Code of Practice), many manufacturers risk being dropped by retailers. Wastage, yield reduction, and contamination risks further impact profitability and brand reputation. Accurately detecting metal and other contaminants whilst maintaining product flow can be a challenge for manufacturers.

Minimise wastage
without compromising
product flow
