Pack & Inspect Group (855-232-1850) of Dubuque, IA, premier Midwest providers of food and beverage product packaging, inspection, and conveying solutions, has launched an industry-leading line of food processing, packaging, and pharmaceutical product metal detection systems.

With food-borne disease incidents rising in frequency worldwide, the demand for industrial metal detectors in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and chemical sectors has grown over the past few years, driven by concerns about product quality and safety. Pack & Inspect Group aims to address these concerns with their new METTLER TOLEDO Safeline metal detector solutions, offering maximum detection sensitivity and minimum false rejects.

According to a July 2023 report by the leading market research provider Consegic Business Intelligence, the global industrial metal detectors market was valued at about $1.1 billion in 2022 and is expected to exceed $1.5 billion by the year 2030, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.5%. This market growth is being driven by government and regulatory bodies’ increasingly stringent food safety regulations and industry players’ concerns about quality control of pharmaceutical products.

Pack & Inspect Group’s METTLER TOLEDO Safeline metal detector systems can handle all product formats, from packaged food products to granular materials, liquids, and pastes. These systems also ensure compliance with food safety inspection standards, industry guidance, and legislation.

The detectors are backed by METTLER TOLEDO’s full support services, including a national network of field service technicians and the iPac support paradigm. Safeline offers models and configurations of metal detection systems that can be combined with METTLER TOLEDO’s checkweigher, X-ray, and vision system products. All these products are supported by a data collection and management system.

Pack & Inspect Group’s metal detector systems are available in two types: those with and without conveyors for flat-belt applications, and gravity fall detectors for powders, grains, and granules. The detectors with flat-belt capability can handle products in bags, pouches, tubs, cartons, cases, or boxes, with dozens of variants available. The gravity fall detector is capable of handling tubes between two and 10 inches in length and has multiple reject options.

“Whether you’re small or large, closer to the farm or the fork, your product needs to be safely and efficiently conveyed and inspected for contents verification, absence of foreign material, and package and labeling integrity,” a company spokesperson explained. “At the Pack & Inspect Group, this is what we do, representing the-best-in-breed of major manufacturers in this arena, providing local expertise in the Upper Midwest to assist you in selection and implementation of solutions.”
