FORTRESS TECHNOLOGY - ADVANCEMENTS IN METAL DETECTION PERFORMANCE OF UP TO 40%

Stealth Front Panel

Fortress Technology, a global leader in the manufacture of metal detector systems, will be demonstrating their latest technologies for their diverse range of custom manufactured metal detectors at Interpack this year. The demonstrations of their new technologies, which will take place at stand 4E39/02 Hall 4, illustrates how Fortress’s Never Obsolete Commitment protects investments by providing their customers the ability to upgrade their current Fortress detector without having to purchase an entirely new system.


Fortress Technology President, Steve Gidman, will be in attendance to demonstrate the impressive effectiveness of their new innovative FM software technology. This software has been developed to be compatible with all previously manufactured Fortress detectors and can be field installed on their Phantom and Stealth models. The FM software analyses the detection signal and uses an algorithm to calculate the signal strength based on a function of time and amplitude. This can significantly improve performance in certain applications, including large bags, by at least 40%. Increasing detection sensitivities lowers the occurrence of false rejects and ultimately increases the return on investment of a Fortress Metal Detection System.


Also on display, will be their revolutionary patent -pending Halo technology; an automatic metal detector testing system. It is designed to automatically test ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel samples on Fortress Technology metal detectors. Automatic testing removes the risk of human error and work place injury at critical control points on a manufacturing line while complying with industry standards. Halo is especially useful in applications where frequent testing of a metal detector is made difficult due to access, position, access to the product flow, environmental conditions, etc.


The diverse range of Fortress metal detectors on display this year, have been manufactured to satisfy retailer and BRC specifications for a wide range of applications. Fortress’s Vector Conveyor System is showcased with their Stealth Metal Detector and its unique capability for USB connectivity to data capture vital performance information such as test records, test reports, rejects, faults and more for QA/QC auditing.


Fortress Technology is the only Metal Detection Manufacturer that, since its inception in 1996, custom manufactures their equipment to suit their customers’ needs, application and specifications to ensure optimal metal detection for their customers and offers a Never Obsolete Commitment. As part of their commitment, they develop their new technology to be backwards compatible and accessible without having to purchase an entirely new system and they continue to provide complete support for their existing systems with readily available parts and a global service team. Fortress metal detectors are renowned in the industry for their speed, accuracy and simple operation and used widely within a range of food industry sectors including bakery, meats, ready meals, dairy, confectionery, fresh foods frozen foods. Fortress is a global enterprise providing worldwide coverage from its manufacturing facilities in Canada, the UK, and Brazil.
