Bunting Magnetics Co. — producer of precision magnetic products for the worldwide food, plastics, chemical, automobile and printing industries — introduced a new electronics system at the International Production and Processing Expo in Atlanta on Jan. 28-31. In addition, Bunting showed its complete line of metal detection and magnetic separation products for ensuring food safety in the food processing industries.

The new Metal Detection 07 Electronics System introduced at the show is the most advanced control system available to the food inspection industry, and includes a color touch screen and dual entry user access for additional security, a news release stated. A USB interface permits simple data exchange of backup, updates and quality control logs.

Automatic product learning permits storing as many as 1,000 unique products. The multiMODE feature permits operators to quickly expand a product range — from fresh to frozen, for example — and the autoTEST capability provides automatic self-testing at any time interval selected. Built-in networking provides remote monitoring and control via Ethernet, or integration into other processing equipment systems.

Rod Henricks, Bunting product manager for metal detection, said: “The new Bunting 07 Electronic System provides food processors with the ultimate in quality control and safety when monitoring product quality. Bunting product options are available to fit every metal separation and detection situation.”
