  • Upgraded checkweigher line designed for improve accuracy, reliability, decreased maintenance

    Versa line relaunched globally with more than 10 engineering/functionality improvements

    MINNEAPOLIS (July 14, 2015) – An upgraded checkweigher product line, available globally, has been designed to improve accuracy and reliability and decrease maintenance for food, pharmaceutical and personal care companies that package products in pouches, bags, cartons and more.

    The newest models of the Thermo Scientific Versa checkweigher line offer more than 10 engineering and functionality improvements for robust performance. This includes upgraded conveyor design, frame, load cell, reject mechanism, motor, mounting and more. Thermo Fisher Scientific will showcase the line at ProPack 2015 in Shanghai, July 15-17, booth 5A17 (Hall N5).

    Thermo Fisher designed the modifications to improve weighing accuracy. This helps to maximize profits by minimizing product giveaway. For combination checkweigher/metal detector systems, optional software provides metal detector reject information on the checkweigher screen. Moving average capability also provides real-time feedback on production metrics.

    To help support global usage, screen language options include: Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, English (UK and US versions), French, German, Italian, Latvian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish and Turkish.

    “Our experience and feedback, via installations in more than 75 countries, has enabled us to engineer the new Thermo Scientific Versa checkweigher line to make performance more robust and operation and maintenance even easier,” said Rick Cash, product manager, checkweighers, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

    The line is available in two models: the fixed-height Thermo Scientific Global VersaWeigh and the cantilevered Global Versa GP, which allows height adjustment. The Global VersaWeigh is ideal for products up to 10 kilograms (22 pounds), while the Global Versa GP model targets up to 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds). The company’s global manufacturing and service footprint facilitates international equipment availability and support.

    The Versa checkweighers are engineered for wet or dry environments, are easy to clean and can handle a wide range of package sizes. Large, easy-to-read, color touch-screen displays and intuitive design make the units simple to operate.

  • New Inspection Capability and Improved Detection Enhances NextGuard X-ray Platform

    To help meet an even broader range of food safety and quality requirements, Thermo Fisher Scientific has added inspection capabilities and enhanced detection to its NextGuard X-ray platform. The NextGuard system can now inspect packaged products for flaws such as missing pieces or components using new, easily customizable vision software.

    “The new product verification option allows users to execute a wide range of size, position and count inspections without relying on the X-ray vendor to create new software for each application. We anticipate that this feature will reduce time/cost for the customer, enabling them to quickly and easily experiment with different inspection algorithms on their own,” said Bob Ries, lead product manager, metal detection and X-ray inspection, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

    The NextGuard product verification software features a pull down menu to quickly select and sequence a range of image processing and analysis algorithms. This enables a wide range of size, shape, angle, count and position-based inspections in minutes, rather than waiting weeks for custom software.

  • New Metal Detection Platform Improves Foreign Object Detection in Food and Consumer Products

    Thermo Scientific Sentinel multiscan metal detector finds previously undetectable metal contaminants.

    A first-of-its-kind metal detection platform from Thermo Fisher Scientific rapidly scans up to five frequencies to help food and consumer goods manufacturers confidently find ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel metal contaminants in products to improve safety for their customers. The Thermo Scientific Sentinel multiscan metal detector also enables users to identify contaminants that are up to 70 percent smaller in volume than previous technologies, including the Thermo Scientific APEX 500 metal detector.

    The Sentinel metal detector is designed for a wide range of applications, offering improved performance for products such as dairy, meat, poultry, fruit, vegetables, bread, and health and beauty. Inspecting these products for foreign objects is especially challenging because of what is known as product effect, where the signal from a particular type of metal can be hidden inside the electromagnetic response of the product. With prior technology, switching the operating frequency could make the hidden metal detectable, but could then make a different type of metal undetectable. Thermo Fisher designed the Sentinel to alleviate this problem by scanning multiple frequencies, increasing the probability of finding all random sizes, shapes and types of embedded metal foreign objects.

    Because the Sentinel metal detector has the same footprint and aperture location as the APEX 500 metal detector, users seeking to upgrade to the new platform can do so easily.

  • Why Multiscanning Technology Improves Metal Detection and Food Safety

    Multiscan technology in the Thermo Scientific™ Sentinel™ Multiscan Metal Detector overcomes many challenges and can dramatically increase probability of detection and lower the chance of an escape.It is widely understood that ferrous is the easiest metal to detect due to its magnetic properties.Magnets attract iron. An electromagnetic field reacts most when a ferrous metal is in it, and the lower the frequency the greater the reaction. What then is the “best” frequency for any metal detection application? The answer is: as many as you can get all at once! This is the premise behind Multiscan technology. You pick a set of up to five frequencies from 50 kHz to 1000 kHz and Multiscan scans through each frequency at a rapid rate, acting like five metal detectors in one. You get the benefits of running a frequency close to ideal for any type of metal you might encounter. The result is that the probability of detection goes up exponentially and escapes disappear and sensitivity is optimized.
