Industrial checkweighers and metal detector upgrades & refurbishment

Upgrades & refurbishment

Changes in Retailers’ Codes of Practice can often leave you with equipment that is no longer compliant. New, replacement inspection machinery looks inevitable. FirstLine Technology however, can upgrade and refurbish your machines in line with the latest failsafe requirements to meet all retailer specifications.

reasons TO upgrade your equipment

Technology

As technology develops, machines are required to deliver greater standards of accuracy and efficiency. Metal Detectors are a target for retailers trying to ensure the risk of food contamination is minimised. If your Metal Detector has been employed for a while, you may need to upgrade its specification to meet the latest Codes of Practice.

Regulations

The food industry is continually striving for improved quality and service within an ever-evolving safety regime. These changes are driven by the British Retail Consortium, or by improvements to retailer specifications such as M&S, Tesco and Sainsbury’s Codes of Practice. As leaders of the industry, all the other players must follow.

New products

New or larger products may bring new demands and requirements from your machines. A change to a Weigh Conveyor may be needed, or a different Search Head or Aperture size. Your ability to adapt to the market is entirely dependent on the capability of your machines.

RETAIL SPECIFICATION UPGRADES

Retailers change their Codes of Practice in response to new technology and their own continuous improvement and commitment to food safety standards.

FirstLine Technology design and develop equipment that specifically targets Tesco, M&S, Sainsbury and all other retailer Codes of Practice. We can upgrade your industrial Metal Detectors and Checkweighers to meet all current retailers’ specifications.
