Published: 28-May-2024

Loma Systems will be demonstrating its latest detection solutions at ACHEMA 2024, the premier global trade fair for the process industries taking place from 10–14 June 2024 at Frankfurt Messe, Germany

Visitors are invited to join Loma Systems at Hall 4.1, Stand A64, to meet the experts and discover inspection solutions tailored for the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries.

The main focus of Loma’s display is the upgraded IQ4 LOCK-PH Pharmaceutical Metal Detector, with two units available offering different reject capabilities.

One of these units is the IQ4 LOCK-PH with a simple lift flap reject, while the other is the IQ4 LOCK-PH with a Wash-In-Place (WIP) reject.

The lift flap reject system is simple but effective, as a flap lifts to send contaminated capsules or tablets into a reject bottle. The WIP option, by contrast,  allows customers to attach a water hose to the reject nozzle and wash the item out rather than manually cleaning it. The WIP reject is completely watertight. 

This advanced detector offers exceptional detection precision and inspects up to 30,000 tablets, capsules, soft gels or lozenges per minute and seamlessly integrates with production line equipment.

Ensuring easy handling by operators, the device features a multilingual interface and a 7-inch touchscreen.

The system also provides high-level security access and reporting options, with all reports being saved in PDF encrypted files to meet strict global manufacturing standards.

Also on show is the Insight Pharmaceutical Metal Detector; designed to inspect tablets and capsules after the tablet press and deduster process, the system provides a throughput of up to 30,000 units per minute and detection levels of up to 0.25 mmFE, 0.3 mmNFE and  0.4 mmSt/St.

Loma’s exhibit will also showcase the newly launched IQ4 FLEX Conveyor Metal Detector; a flexible conveyor that is perfect for customers with the possibility of changing inspection requirements in the future.

The FLEX Conveyor enables users to customise the conveyor according to their needs, adjusting the aperture height, belt speed and belt lengths, making it a flexible investment.

The system is suitable for the varying needs of all pharmaceutical and nutraceutical customers and is ideal for inspecting fully packaged items before shipping.

James Chrismas, International Pharmaceutical Business Manager at Loma Systems, said: "ACHEMA 2024 presents a remarkable opportunity for Loma Systems to demonstrate our latest technical developments and dedication to providing the best inspection solutions to the pharmaceutical industry."

"We are particularly excited to showcase our new IQ4 LOCK-PH and IQ4 FLEX Conveyor Metal Detectors. These products represent our commitment to enhancing product safety and operational efficiency for our customers in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industries."

The Loma Systems team looks forward to engaging with customers and prospects, and discussing how its latest products and services can meet their current and future needs.
