Increased food safety. Less waste.
Metal detection with Artificial Intelligence.

Food with a high product effect makes metal detection more difficult

Particularly in the case of food with a high "product effect", i.e. a certain intrinsic conductivity, conventional metal detectors reach their limits. This is the case with meat, fish and dairy products, for example. Metallized packaging has also posed a problem - up to now.

With THiNK - the new software for metal detectors based on Artificial Intelligence - these "interfering signals" can be faded out much better than with conventional metal detectors.

Your benefits

Increased Food Safety

Food processors must comply with strict guidelines and standards regarding food safety. For products with a high product effect (intrinsic conductivity), the sensitivity of the metal detector must usually be reduced. However, this increases the risk of metal contamination in the final product.

With THiNK, the product effect can be almost completely faded out. This allows you to use a high sensitivity setting with which you can detect even the smallest metals. Your advantage: More security against product recalls.

Less food waste

As a result of the product effect, also products that are not contaminated at all are often rejected. Due to the intrinsic conductivity of foods such as meat, fish and dairy products, conventional metal detectors "see" metal contaminations where there is none.

THiNK can distinguish the product effect from real metal contaminations, minimizing false rejections. This reduces food waste and saves costs.

Inspection of products in metallized packaging

Products that are packed in metallized foil have been difficult to inspect with metal detectors until now.

With THiNK even this is now possible. The intelligent software simply hides the metal signal from the packaging and only detects the actual metal contamination.

Product features

Increases the detection accuracy of metals

THiNK works on the basis of artificial intelligence. This enables the software to draw conclusions from very large amounts of data that go far beyond if-then rules, and virtually creates a digital fingerprint of the product effect.  

This allows the product effect to be faded out and even smallest metal contaminants are reliably detected, which would remain undetected in previous systems.

Reduces false rejects due to product effects

THiNK creates mathematical models of the product effect, which is also responsible for false rejects, and thus manages to almost completely eliminate the influence of the product effect.  

Metal detectors with THiNK thus generate far fewer false rejects than previous systems.

Fades out metallized packaging

Using the same method that THiNK uses to fade out the product effect, THiNK can also fade out the effect of metallized packaging. This now makes it possible to inspect products in metallized film with high detection accuracy. Until now, X-ray inspection systems were often necessary for such applications.

THiNK compared to standard metal detection

In the V2A metal detection of packaged noodles, THiNK technology delivers even better results than X-ray technology!
