From the 9th to the 11th of April 2019 we are participating in the POWTECH exhibition in Nuremberg, the leading trade show for Processing, Analysis, and Handling of Bulk Solids.

On our booth 2-140 in hall 2 we will be presenting various highlights of our metal detector and separator portfolio for inspecting powders, granules or flakes.

Focusing on “Digitalization” and “Industry 4.0” we will introduce the “Automatic protocol export” feature for our AMD07 series units. It allows exporting reports and event logs onto a customer’s drive without the need for installing additional hard- or software.

New on the POWTECH is also the PLASTRON 05 K, an innovative system for the separation of metal contaminations to be installed onto injection molding machines, extruders or blow molding systems.

Development focus was targeting especially cleanability and durability.

Our experts on site are locking forward to your visit and to interesting conversations!

PLASTRON 05 K – Metal separator for installation on injection molding machines or extruders



Metal separation on the machine intake. The last chance becomes the first choice.

The Plastron 05 K is a new metal separator from MESUTRONIC. It was developed for the examination of plastic granulates, ground material and powders for metallic foreign bodies. It thus completes the company’s extensive range of products for injection moulding and extrusion for the application case of slow-flowing material columns. It is installed directly between feed systems such as hopper loader or mixer and the plastification unit.

Particular consideration was given to the temperature stability and detection accuracy of the detection coil. This was achieved through the use of precision milled parts and a winding support made of modern composite material.

The ejection unit impresses with absolutely reliable ejections of both bridge-forming and slumping or free-falling materials. It can also be dismantled for cleaning in a matter of seconds without tools.

The high-quality AMD 05 functions as the evaluation electronics. Apart from excellent immunity to interference, this also offers ideal communication options in the sense of digitalization.

This combination of innovation and reliability results in top performance data for precision, operating reliability and ease of cleaning. Even in the basic version the system can be used for material temperatures up to 120 °C. This offers considerably greater flexibility with the increasing use of pre-dried granulate.

MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH has been producing innovative metal detection technology for the plastics industry for over 25 years. Customers all over the world are supplied with metal detectors and separators from the company’s headquarters in Kirchberg im Wald.

Mesutronic at the K 2016 in Düsseldorf

Kirchberg im Wald. The K trade fair opens its gates once again in Düsseldorf on Wednesday, 19 October 2016. The trade fair is the absolute highlight in the industry and the starting point for trendsetting decisions for process, product and problem solutions in plastics processing.

We interviewed our product manager Jörg Pattberg about this industry highlight:

Mr Pattberg, how important is the plastics market to MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH?

 JP: The plastics industry is one of our most important business segments. The roots of Mesutronic, which was founded nearly 25 years ago, lie here. Over the years both our portfolio and our network of technicians and sales specialists has grown continuously. Our high presence at the most renowned plant manufacturers and end customers in this sector proves it. And we will, of course, continue to focus on this market in future.

For product manager Jörg Pattberg is the plastics industry one of the main business segments of the MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH.

How important is the K trade fair to Mesutronic?

 JP: To be internationally successful in the plastics industry we have to be present for our customers. Direct contact is very important to us. The K trade fair is a good place, not only to meet our customers en masse, but also to generate new contacts and to show them our proven metal detection technology. Our presence began here in the founding years and we will continue in future to be present for our customers and joint exhibitors within the framework of the trade fair.

What are you expecting from the K trade fair?

 JP: Business transactions at trade fairs have receded more and more into the background in recent years, so we are focusing on communication and customer ties. That is also reflected by our new booth concept, which backs off a little from pure presentation. We see ourselves as partners and want to convey inclusion and enjoyment in contact at every level.

Mesutronic stands for innovative devices; what are Mesutronic’s plans with regard to the plastics industry? How do you stand with regard to Industry 4.0?

 JP: A very interesting development project for the plastics sector is currently in progress in the company. No further details will be available until the end of next year, however. Industry 4.0 is not a new topic for us. We made provision more than 10 years ago for the simple linking of our machines to higher-level systems, both for data acquisition and for external control options. The most diverse communication methods are available to the customer today. That’s why we see many opportunities here and consider ourselves to be ideally prepared.

Our exhibition team is looking forward to present reliable metal surch technology on the new Booth.

Precise and reliable Metal detectors from Mesutronic protect the processing machines of the industry giant Stora Enso

Somewhere on a round timber yard in South Germany: a gripper places a tree trunk on a conveyor belt, which guides it through a metal detector. Suddenly an alarm siren sounds and the conveying process is stopped – a piece of metal has been detected. This, or something similar, is the common metal detection process in the wood industry. Possible metal contaminants often have to be intercepted before cutting in the sawmill in order to protect the expensive saw blades. But what about the protection of machines in the further processing? The Finnish industry giant in the wood segment, Stora Enso, has relied for years on the proven technology from Mesutronic Gerätebau GmbH from Kirchberg im Wald to protect its production machines. But first things first!

Detection of larger metal parts to protect your production.

Detection of larger metal parts to protect your production.

The Stora Enso company can look back on a hundred years of history and is today one of the largest timber processors worldwide. Its five business divisions generate an annual turnover of around 10.3 billion euros with a total of 28,000 employees. The ‘Wood Products’ segment is one the most successful in the company and is really impressive with a sawing capacity of 5.6 million cubic metres. Part of the Stora Enso family is located in the picturesque town of Pfarrkirchen in Lower Bavaria. This location mainly produces KVH® solid structural timber and Duobalken/Triobalken® beams for the construction industry. Naturally the production also generates waste – the so-called industrial wood residues. These are woods generated as by-products, residues or waste in the woodworking industry. Of course the industrial wood residues are not simply disposed of in the Pfarrkirchen works, but are recycled in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner. First of all the wood is collected in silos and prepared for the further processing. The first metal detector from Mesutronic is already installed before the collecting containers; it acts, so to speak, as the entrance inspection. It is mounted under a vibrating channel and has the task of detecting larger metal parts that could damage the downstream shredder. And it has been successfully doing just that for over ten years now. After the silo there are in principle two possibilities for further utilisation. Firstly, combustion in the in-house heating plant or, secondly, processing into wood pellets. In the latter case, further processing steps follow that require a great deal of care. The raw materials are ground further in a grinder and fed to the pelletizing plant via a piping system. Then, under high pressure, the material is pressed through a steel die, which has holes in the desired pellet size.

The METRON 05 PowerLine metal detector, in combination with the high-speed TEXREJECT, a highly efficient complete system

The METRON 05 PowerLine metal detector, in combination with the high-speed TEXREJECT, a highly efficient complete system

The high pressure heats up the wood and causes the lignin in the material to liquefy, so that it can act as a binding agent. In order to protect the die, a metal detector with a separation system must be placed before the pelletizing plant. Stora-Enso in Pfarrkirchen thereby utilises a solution from the textile industry. The Metron 05 PowerLine metal detector is combined with the high-performance Texreject separation system to form a highly efficient complete system. The metal detector is mounted in a piping system and checks the ground wood before the separating diverter. If a metal contaminant is detected, the detector sends a signal to the Texreject, which then separates out the contaminated material. The separation of the small fragments of wood in a controlled manner is both a big challenge and new territory in the wood industry. The separator from Mesutronic provides all the conditions required to overcome this difficulty. Thanks to the pneumatic diameter of 500 mm it can cope even with enormous streams of material without problems. With its fast flap opening time of 0.16 s it separates contaminants from the product stream reliably and without interruptions in production and diverts them into a bad material container. Contaminations that occur are, for example, the steel wedge hammers used for marking solid structural timber. These are so hard that they would irreparably damage the pellet die and bring production to a standstill. The reliable and low-maintenance metal detectors and separators from Mesutronic have been reliably preventing that for many years.

MESUTRONIC presents reliable and safe metal detection technology at the FAKUMA 2015

Friedrichshafen/Kirchberg. The FAKUMA 2015 will once again be the meeting place for the plastics processing industry from 13 to 17 October 2015. The trade fair in Friedrichshafen has been offering a comprehensive insight into the entire spectrum of plastic technologies for over 30 years.

The detection of metal contaminants in plastic parts for the protection of production systems is also a major topic in the plastics industry. MESUTRONIC Gerätebau GmbH is a specialist in this area. The manufacturer of metal detectors and separators from Lower Bavaria will present its innovative metal detection technology in Friedrichshafen at its trade fair booth in Hall B1 / Booth 1103.In addition to further metal separators for the freefall and pneumatic conveying of granulates and ground stock, the company will present the QUICKTRON 05 RH for the examination of masterbatches.This system, which originates from the food industry, offers many advantages. Its completely colourless construction, which avoids all discolouration of the granulates, is unique in the entire industry. All plastic parts that come into contact with the product are manufactured in neutral white. Furthermore, the passage is silicone-free and extremely easy to clean without tools. Even in environments with strong interference fields, the patented PowerLine principle offers maximum precision while at the same time also preventing false alarms due to static charging of the granulate.

MESUTRONIC looks forward to welcoming numerous visitors to the FAKUMA in Friedrichshafen and to many interesting contacts and intensive discussions on the subject of “Metal detection –
Made in Germany”.
