Loma unveils latest innovations at Interpack
2005, currently running in Dusseldorf, Germany, to showcase its
portfolio of end-of-line inspection equipment, including IQ 2 metal
detectors,AS checkweighers and its range of x-ray systems, reports
A significant upgrade will be unveiled to Loma's X 3 x-ray system, which the company says will further enhance the user-friendly controls with a touch screen interface and a superior operating platform.
The innovation means that commands can be displayed in multiple languages and the Windows XP software enables operators to change settings at the touch of a button. Its 'Explorer' feature is aimed at non-uniform products, as it allows detailed analysis of contaminants that would not be picked up by conventional systems.
The new X 3 can also be fully networked with other production line equipment to allow Operations Managers to access real-time information and up-to-the minute status reports.
The company's 'Celsius' temperature measurement system will also be a focal point of the stand, building on its high-profile launch to the European market in 2004 and successful trials with Marks & Spencer.
To highlight its inspection systems, Loma will also be previewing its 'Select Products' range, which provides off the shelf solutions for companies wishing to source standard equipment within shorter lead times.
Commenting on the event, Group Product Director Chris Kaine said, "Wehave made significant strides in new product development over the past year and will be using Interpack 2005 to showcase the results to buyers and specifiers from across the globe."
