New metal detector Mitus: maximum detection, minimum rejection

The metal detection system Mitus® offers users a whole new level of foreign object detection: Thanks to its flexible modu-lation feature MiWave, the inspection solution from Minebea Intec reliably detects contaminated products of a wide range of sizes, shapes and compositions, thereby preventing need-less incorrect rejections. This ensures maximum product safety and efficiency on the production line. First introduced at interpack 2023, the metal detector Mitus® is available now.

With the new metal detection system Mitus®, Minebea Intec offers a high-precision inspection solution for detecting foreign objects in almost all applications in the food and drinks industry. Thanks to its flexible modulation feature MiWave, the system ignores high product effects caused by product shape, size and composition, and minimises incorrect separations in the process. This enables Mitus® to reliably detect foreign objects. Another impressive fea-ture of the metal detector is the variety of models available, which ensures it can be easily integrated into existing systems.
Maximum product safety and output for almost all applica-tions
In the food industry, reliable metal detection devices make a dif-ference in how effectively they offset product effects, i.e. how the product itself affects the electromagnetic field. The size of the product effect depends on a range of factors, including product shape, size, temperature, moisture and the concentration of in-gredients, particularly the salt content of the product. Generally speaking, if these properties change, it can lead to unexpected product effects, which can pose problems for conventional metal detectors. Flexibility is the key to success here. Mitus® handles this challenge thanks to its flexible modulation feature MiWave. Mi-Wave artificially modulates transmitter waves and intelligently resolves and analyses the receiver spectrum. This enables Mitus® to automatically minimise the problem of incorrect rejections and therefore provide maximum detection sensitivity for foreign ob-jects made from ferrous and non-ferrous metals, stainless steels and light metals like aluminium.
Mitus® enables fast and easy integration into existing produc-tion systems
Mitus® is also easy to integrate into existing systems: the inspec-tion solution is available in most standard sizes and as a rectangu-lar, round or compact detection coil, which means it can be inte-grated into your system even if there is limited space available. Mitus® can be easily combined with other inspection solutions, such as weighing technology, and integrated into existing produc-tion lines. The product is also equipped with the standardised Minebea Intec user interface, which makes for easy and intuitive operation. One example of this is the integrated teach-in mode, which reduces the configuration of new products to a few simple steps, thus saving the customer valuable time.
Mitus®: robust, reliable and cost-effective
It’s not just the operation of the Mitus® that impresses: cleaning and maintenance are also easier thanks to the device’s design, which complies with Hygienic Design guidelines. The metal detec-tor is made from stainless steel and protected against pressure jet cleaning. Smooth, self-drain surfaces predominate, while dead space and rebates have been minimised throughout. The easy cleaning saves time and cleaning materials, and therefore costs. “With Mitus® we are offering users a premium metal detection solution: as a critical control point, it ensures that foreign objects are reliably detected despite high and variable product effects,” says Linus Dellweg, Global Product Manager at Minebea Intec. “Users can also rely on our products being of premium ‘Made in Germany’ quality: we have now been manufacturing detection solutions for over seven decades, with consumers and manufac-turers alike benefiting from our reliable product inspection tech-nology.”
