new metal detector with even higher accuracy
Erhardt+Leimer at ITMA Asia
At last – having been rescheduled from 2020, the 7th edition of
the combined ITMA ASIA and CITMA exhibition will take place from
12 – 16 June 2021. Some 1,650 exhibitors will be at the venue
in Shanghai, among them Erhardt+Leimer with several products
from their broad portfolio for automation and quality assurance
in the textile industry.
One of the products showcased by E+L is the new ELMETA
MDA1005 / MDA1006 metal detector with increased accuracy: It
reliably detects even very small metal particles across the
entire width of the web. Signal LEDs on the sensor indicate the
position of the metal particle in the web. The integrated
segment-wise evaluation as well as the gain setting and a reset
button ensure straightforward commissioning. The device detects
metal particles at production speeds from 2 to 500 m/min
(depending on the size and material of the particles). The
special scanning surface and the aluminum housing prevent damp
webs or electromagnetic interference affecting the detection
result. The device can be used for dry and damp textiles and for
non-woven fabrics. It can be installed in any orientation in any
production machine. The only requirement is that there must not
be any moving parts, e.g. rollers, installed within an area of
The new metal detector ELMETA MDA1005.
By detecting even very small metal particles, the
MDA1005/1006 can prevent extremely costly damage that may occur
on the downstream calender rollers and shearing tools.
Furthermore, the risk of catalytic reactions in wet finishing is
Apart from the metal detector, Erhardt+Leimer will exhibit
the ELCUT cutting systems, the ELSMART web guiding and spreading
system, the ELSTRAIGHT weft straightening system, the ELFEED
tenter guider, ELTENS equipment for web tension measurement and
control and the camera-based ELCOUNT pick and course counter.
