Machine Specification


MDF11 Pharma Metal Detector

Multi-frequency technology
The multi-frequency electronics result in high-level immunity from environmental interferences (dry, humid, cool and frozen) and extremely high sensitivity to all magnetic and non-magnetic metals, including stainless metals, thereby guaranteeing top level performances.

Simple, functional electronics
Digital electronics with alphanumeric display complete with self-check, automatic balancing and tracking functions. Bi-dimensional image digital principle of operation. Possibility of adjusting phases and storing up to 100 programs. A RS232 C serial port is also available. Multi-level password protected access reduces human error to a minimum.

Stable, safe and easily serviced mechanics
The machine consists of a tilted chute that goes through the metal detector coil. Upon detecting metal contaminants, a flap is activated, which diverts the contaminant out of the production flow. The transit aperture is made with inert materials that ensure the coil is completely sealed. It is easily removable and can be sanitised completely.  It is available with two different transit dimensions: 95x22mm and 95x32mm. The control panel, with IP54, is on-board and the entire main support structure is made of stainless steel with ballasted base to increase insensitivity to external vibrations and guarantee high-level mechanical stability to the unit. The structure allows you to adjust product infeed height (from 850 to 1000 mm), tilt angle (from 0° to 45°) and unit movement via locking wheels. The machine is available with or without a rejection bin.

30 years of inspection and quality control: an experience that comes to life in every new model that is designed and built in our establishments.

Italian passion for quality is reflected in every machine detail. The attention to every detail, guided by thirty years of experience, is the real added value of PRISMA machines. Finished down to the last detail and made of stainless steel, it is able to withstand intense washing cycles, which can be done extremely quickly, thanks to the chute quick-removal system.

Conformity with standards
The MDF11 meets the ISO-FDA HACCP standard, the main pharmaceutical directives (including, among others: FDA approvals, FAT/SAT IQ/OQ) and complies with the standards in force for Pharmaceutical Metal Detection Systems and customer guidelines and standards (including, among others: BRC and Marks & Spencer).

Performance and Versatility
Our machines meet high levels of performance and product interchangeability; and wherever they are unable to reach, we can design a tailored system for every requirement.

Return on Investment
Imagine how much you can save with a machine that does not waste product, generate false rejects or force production standstills and that protects the brand. Savings that extend over the years, thanks to the high quality of the materials and the longevity of the machine, which are at top market levels. Our sales team knows how to find the solution that best suits any type of budget and expected financial return. 

Convenience and simplicity
A simple, streamlined user interface and years of experience installing and integrating into production lines. All the models can be equipped with Ethernet and USB interfaces to transmit data and all the machines can also be connected to a single, centralised data collection system, our Data Manager Tracking.

Metal detector for small, high-flow loose pharmaceutical products, like tablets and capsules. The MDF11 was specifically designed to meet the specific inspection requirements of the pharmaceutical sector. A tilted chute in inert material, easily removable and suitable for direct contact with the product, goes through the metal detector coil. Should metal contaminants be detected while the product is transiting, a flap is activated, which diverts the contaminant out of the production flow.

Equipped with regulators that make it highly adaptable, it is able to scan 10000 pieces/minute and can detect any type of metal contaminant: ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless.

The multi-frequency electronics combined with advanced functions – like self-check, automatic calibration and tracking – guarantee top level performance, and fully meet the standards in force for Pharmaceutical Metal Detection Systems and the need to minimise false rejects.

  • Reject management systems
    A rejection bin can be implemented. All the rejected product bins are protected by a key, allowing only authorised personnel to access them.

  • Alarms notification
    Several types of alarm notifications, both visual and audio.

  • Product program memory expansion
    The settable product program limit can be exceeded by expanding the available memory and thereby further increasing the machine’s versatility.

  • USB and Ethernet interface
    Interfaces to export and communicate production data in real time can be implemented on all PRISMA models. The model is compatible with our DMT software, which allows for convenient direct remote control over the entire production process.
