New ‘most future-proof’ metal detector series from Loma

first_imgFarnborough-based Loma Systems has introduced the IQ4 series of metal detectors. The new range “offers improved sensitivity, beyond IP69K washdown rating, larger 7-inch touchscreens across all IQ4 models and variable frequency for pipeline & VF models”, according to the company.The new technology offers improved sensitivity compared to previous models and “industry first” features designed to deliver optimum production efficiencies, said Loma.The series has been designed “to meet customers’ common inspection challenges and provide major design, performance, usability, quality and flexibility benefits, whilst ensuring low lifetime cost of ownership and meeting ‘Designed to Survive’ criteria”, it added in a statement.The IQ4 provides significant improvements in detection performance, according to Loma: “Compared to previous-generation Loma IQ3+ST metal detectors, the IQ4 can provide up to a 35% improvement in detection sensitivity, with tough-to-handle metallised film products, and achieves this without having to resort to complex or expensive simultaneous frequency technologies.”The IQ4 technology has enabled Loma to introduce true Variable Frequency to its Pipeline, Waferthin and Vertical Fall metal detectors for the first time. Operating between 31-882 kHz, all metal detectors in the IQ4 range are capable of automatically selecting the correct operating frequency, “so changes in products or packaging that necessitate an alteration in frequency no longer require costly and inconvenient operator intervention”, said the firm. In addition, Variable Frequency allows processors to run different pack sizes and shapes easily, while benefiting from improved stability and sensitivity.In what Loma claimed was “an industry first”, all models in the IQ4 series boast a newly designed 7-inch colour touchscreen with a modernised and more intuitive interface that has been developed to simplify operation, deliver instant clarity to inspection status and provide straightforward access to a host of advanced functionality.last_img read more
