METAL DETECTION

Ever since being founded in 1969, LOMA SYSTEMS® has worked closely with both food manufacturers and retailers to deliver advances in technology. As a result, LOMA® has an unrivalled level of experience and expertise, in the practice of effective metal detection within food industry production lines.

LOMA's latest introduction of the IQ4 series of Metal Detectors is the result bringing together the combined experience of LOMA, LOCK Inspection, CINTEX and BRAPENTA, and nearly 50 years of customer-back innovation. LOMA’s engineering teams have employed the Designed to Survive® philosophy to deliver great metal detection sensitivity in a package that is easy to install; easy to use; easy to clean and maintain; can withstand the arduous production environments; and ultimately brings a brilliant cost of ownership.

The IQ4 series of Metal Detectors include many features designed to aid uptime and productivity, including revolutionary variable frequency technology that optimize detection levels around a wide range of differing product conditions, and an intuitive touchscreen with icon driven menus allowing fast set-up. They also feature ingress ratings of up to IP69K, meaning they are suitable for both high-care and low-care environments.

Reliable Detection Performance
Optimized detector mechanics, true Variable Frequency technology, progressive electronics and a better, faster Auto-Learn brings considerable performance gains over prior generation IQ3+ST search heads. Even in challenging applications, such as a heavy-metalized film product, great sensitivity can be set-up with Auto-Learn and inspected without the need for further optimization.

Robust “Designed to Survive” as standard
An improved lip and screen, a new sealing arrangement, proven ultra-harsh mechanics and a “beyond” IP69K rating makes the IQ4 search heads hygienic; easy to clean; and super-tough being able to survive harsh food production environments, whether they are hot, freezing cold, dry, dusty or wet, or a combination of them all!

Modern and Intuitive
A new 7” color touchscreen as standard on every model, a crisp and freshened up interface, and enhanced functionality help deliver a much-improved user experience, helping to minimize user errors and make light work of inspection.
