MPI Announces Partnership with Cassel

October 31, 2010
Magnetic Products, Inc. (MPI), a worldwide provider of both magnetic and non-magnetic material handling solutions, is pleased to announce its partnership with Cassel Messtechnik GmbH.

Cassel manufactures a complete line of next-generation Metal Detectors, which feature “Four-Quadrant” technology. This technological innovation allows Cassel Metal Detectors to readily adjust settings and detect metals in even the most “difficult” products such as cheese or high-salt content foods. By finding even the smallest particles of ferrous, nonferrous and stainless steel contaminants, Cassel Metal Detectors assist food processors to meet HACCP, IFS, BRC and GMP safety standards.

A typical application of a Cassel metal detector in the snack food industry is its integrated use with the VFFS: After the combination scale drops the proper weight of product, it passes through the Cassel metal detector before entering the bag-forming tube on the vertical form fill machine (VFFS). If metal is detected, the metal detector sends a signal to the VFFS machine that will skip the sealing jaws from closing. This creates a double-length bag that holds the contaminant. The operator can then remove the bag from the packaging line. This keeps the production line running without a delay.

“A partnership with Cassel is an ideal fit for us,” said Keith Rhodes, president, MPI. “There is a natural synergy between our companies and technologies. Our goal is to keep customer product contaminant free, and the role of Metal Separators and Metal Detectors is invaluable in this effort,” added Rhodes.

MPI will act as the exclusive North American distributor for Cassel in the food, pharmaceutical, plastics, aggregate, recycling and mining industries.  Cassel also manufactures a complete line of checkweighers.
