The revolutionary IQ4 series of next generation metal detection systems by Loma offers significantly improved sensitivity compared to previous models and a plethora of exciting "industry-first" features purposely designed to deliver optimum production line efficiencies. With the combination of enhanced Auto Learn functionality, improved product screening and more sophisticated signal processing, the IQ4 provides significant improvements in detection performance.

The IQ4 technology has enabled Loma to introduce true Variable Frequency to its Pipeline, Waferthin and Vertical Fall metal detectors for the first time. Operating between 31-882 kHz, all metal detectors in the IQ4 series are capable of automatically selecting correct operating frequency so changes in products or packaging that necessitate an alteration in frequency no longer require costly and inconvenient operator intervention. In addition, Variable Frequency allows processors to easily run different pack sizes and shapes whilst benefiting from improved stability and sensitivity.

For an industry first, all IQ4 metal detector models boast a newly designed 7” color touchscreen with a modernized and more intuitive interface that has been developed to simplify operation.

The horizontal search heads feature a ‘beyond’ IP69K rating as standard for the ultimate in robustness. A unique new blue sealing helps make the machine resilient to a host of tough factory conditions, ranging from vibration and thermal fluctuations as a result of inspecting frozen products, to harsh high pressure, high temperature wash-downs with corrosive chemical agents.

The IQ4 series of metal detectors also offers Performance Validation System (PVS) testing, product speed control, connection to TRACS software for centralized data reporting, support for biometric security and robust support for FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
