By integrating an NJM raised-bed conveyor with a 3rd-party metal detector head, NJM has eliminated the need for bottle transfers. The CMD delivers superior performance and a tablet entrapment free design to help manufacturers and contract packers ensure product safety and avoid costly product recalls.
“As experts in bottle handling and line integration for healthcare products, we’ve helped countless customers integrate metal detectors on their packaging lines. However, most metal detectors on the market are designed for stable packages that can’t spill, completely missing the mark for pharma and nutra bottles and requiring deep modifications. We saw a real need for a compact metal detector built expressly for this challenging application. That’s how the CMD was born,” said Omar Azam, Inside Sales Manager at NJM. “Our raised-bed conveyor and other CMD product handling modules are based on our innovative, field-proven beltorque® capper. As always, our design philosophy focuses on accurate container handling and quick line clearance – the CMD reflects those values.”
Ideal for tablets, capsules, powders, and liquid products, this versatile metal detection system can handle round, oval, square, and rectangular bottles made of plastic or glass from 1.5 to 7.9 in. (38 to 200 mm) in height and from 0.6 to 5.5 in. (16 to 140 mm) in diameter. NJM can equip the CMD with a metal detector head from a variety of top-tier vendors including Thermo-Scientific, Mettler-Toledo, and Loma. Heads with multi-simultaneous frequency operation are available for customers handling a wide range of product types.
