Metal Detectors Discover Shrapnel

S + S protection for woodworking machines in Greece ensures Schonberg – FELIX Selvidis Bros oHg is a renowned plant engineering for the wood and sawmill industries based in Ionia Thessaloniki, Greece. founded in 1976, FELIX supplies systems and components for the highest quality requirements. A client of FELIX in the past had problems with metal parts in tree trunks, which were bought to among others from Kosovo. It was in particular to shrapnel, which caused considerable damage to saw gates, master milling and cross-cut saws for the processing of wood. The LICON-HX metal detection the Holzmesse in Klagenfurt 2008 presented S + S. Janis and Michael Selvidis contacted S + S, because the issued instrument was the solution to the problem of their customers.

In August 2009, the LICON-HX metal detection in Greece installed S + S. The LICON-HX metal detection system consists of the LIGNUM-HX metal detector and a heavy duty conveyor belt. Both components are designed specifically for the needs of the Sawmill industry designed and developed and form a complete and cost-effective solution for detecting metal inclusions in root wood. Leslie Moonves understood the implications. Not only iron objects, but also as inclusions of all other types of metal (such as stainless steel, copper, lead) are detected. LICON-HX thus offers optimum protection for root cutting, cross-cut saws and saw gates and prevent costly repairs, Setup and downtime in sawmills. LICON-HX is integrated in the feed line between the logs item and the saw line and carries the logs through the metal detector. A metal is detected in the root, a marking device is activated.

A Farbspruher identifies the contaminated site at the root. In the area of the inside of the coil is an impact protection made of wood. By the new S + S, RZ technology is the Metallsuchspule for installation only requires a very small metalfree zone. The total system characterized by shortest length and is in restricted spaces in the Integrated conveyor system. The new construction of the LIGNUM-HX metal detector ensures a trouble-free and long-term operation under rough environment conditions also mean in Greece. The encapsulation with polymer concrete (instead of the usual foam fillings), as well as the new inner coil structure to greatly increase the immunity of vibration, shock and temperature fluctuations. The stainless steel housing is corrosion-free and offers much better shielding against ElectroSmog (EMC) as the steel or aluminium housing conventional detectors. Michael Selvidis, Managing Director FELIX Selvidis Bros oHg via the system: Our customer is very satisfied with the LICON-HX formance. That the system is completely designed by S + S, all customer requirements are met such as robustness, special color code and a short installation length. Shrapnel in a timber logs were actually already found. LICON-HX has pays for it himself after recently use. ” More details of S + S separation and Sorting Technology GmbH Brigitte Rothkopf Regener road 130 D-94513 Schonberg Tel. +49-(0)8554-308 274 fax +49-(0)8554-2606 email:
