New BottleChek metal detection system with value-added software

A new BottleChek metal detection system with value-added software for quick product set-ups and a higher level of traceability, provides Lock customers with a unique competitive edge.

The system, which inspects bottles of tablets and capsules at the end of the packaging line for unwanted metallic particles, is the only system on the market to incorporate Lock’s unique OPTIX detector management software and signature DDS (Direct Digital Signal) vector image display to aid quick automated product set-ups and a high level of traceability.

Using real time data capture, OPTIX detector management software gives pharmaceutical manufacturer’s a competitive edge as it provides them the information they require to be fully accountable for their product, batch and line performance.

“Although this bottle-check metal detection system is not new technology to the pharma industry, our software adds value unlike any other competitive system – complex product set-ups can be completed with absolute confidence in a matter of seconds thus keeping downtime to a minimum and manufacturers can demonstrate a high level of product accountability and traceability giving them a unique competitive edge in the marketplace.”

Lock’s new BottleChek system is supplied with a high frequency (875kHz) metal detector head that can be specified with a product specific aperture size built to customer requirements and is designed to be highly sensitive to SS316 as required by the pharmaceutical industry. The specially designed conveyor is easily integrated into a transfer line where side-to-side bottle transfer of the smallest bottles is achieved with 100% accuracy. Deployment of the reject system takes place without causing bottle damage or product loss in the event of metal contamination being detected.

 

Lock has hundreds of Bottle Style detection systems installed. There are 4 styles that can be offered to suit any customer's production line (see drawing below):

1. Seamless Transfer Style – This style is ideal for customers who are concerned about smooth transfer of bottles through the metal detector with no transfer points. The metal detector and stand are designed to accommodate the customers existing table top style chain. The stand also comes with a "no topple" diverter reject.

2. In Line Transfer Style – This is a straight in line transfer system and requires a customer cut in. The infeed and outfeed sections of the conveyor can be fitted with dead plates or transfer rollers to assist with bottle transfer on and off.

3. Side Transfer – Cut In Style – This style provides side transfers on and off of the system, but requires a cut in to the existing conveyor.

4. Side Transfer – No Cut in Style – This side transfer system does not require a customer cut in to the existing line n All Lock Bottle Line Metal Detection systems are available with a variety of soft reject systems custom designed for any bottle size.
