Thermo Scientific is offering an upgrade to extend life and improve functionality of selected metal detector platforms.

The APEX upgrade is for units based on the DSP3 architecture installed in food and pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities.

Thermo Fisher designed the APEX metal detector upgrade to eliminate setup adjustments by using Intellitrack XR (IXR) software. Intellitrack features a signal processing approach that addresses the challenges of detecting smaller diameter metals in items that higher product effect.

This occurs when a product has a conductive property, which affects the magnetic field generated by the metal detector and is typically found in high salt, high moisture product environments.

The firm claims it can meet more stringent quality standards by detecting smaller diameter metal contaminants and improved sensitivity reduces rework and scrap caused by false rejects.

On-site or factory installation of the APEX electronics and software upgrade by a Thermo Fisher Scientific field service professional is possible.  

”We wanted to provide processors with a cost-effective way to enhance the life of their older Thermo Scientific metal detectors by providing a quick path to enhanced functionality. We believe the APEX upgrade capability does just that,”​ said Bob Ries, lead product manager, metal detection and X-ray inspection, Thermo Fisher Scientific.
