Erie, PA - Eriez, world authority in separation technologies, will double the manufacturing space for metal detection production at its headquarters, according to Tim Shuttleworth, President and CEO.

“Our sales for the new Xtreme® Metal Detector have exceeded our forecast, and we have decided to double our manufacturing capacity this summer,” said Shuttleworth. “This will shorten lead times and help meet the growing demand in the food, plastics and other processing industries. Plans include expanding the footprint for our plant as well as dedicating a significant amount of space to metal detection.”

According to Shuttleworth, the new Xtreme Metal Detector surpasses previous units and competitive models alike with enhanced features, improved sensitivity, intuitive operation and exceptional reliability. The ultra-sleek Xtreme Metal Detector blends simplicity and sophistication with its easy-to-navigate control with seven-inch wide color interface.

Made for light industry applications, including chemical, food processing, packaging, textiles, pharmaceuticals, plastics and rubber, the Xtreme Metal Detector boasts a completely re-designed and incredibly user-friendly interface. Other highlights include full QWERTY keyboard, robust auto set-up, dedicated reject log and vivid display. “We modeled our interface after today’s stylish and advanced smartphones,” Shuttleworth pointed out. “We have also noticed a spike in sales of the new Eriez Metal Loss Monitor in the recycling industry. The demand for this technology will also be addressed by our plant expansion.”

The company’s magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, plastics, rubber, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries.
