Fortress Technology, a global leader in the manufacture of metal detector systems, is pleased to announce the world wide release of their new modular surface metal detector system. This revolutionary modular system has been designed with a quick connect function, using a unique rail system, which enables each module to be independently placed, repositioned, removed and replaced, even while a web is present. Detector modules, along with the rail mount system are custom built to suit application, and therefore the overall width of system is unrestricted.


“This system was designed to solve challenges our customer encountered with their production line”, says Steve Gidman, president of Fortress Technology. “We created a durable rail mount system, that withstands a harsh environment, including vibration, to enable our customer to achieve the best sensitivity in challenging environment.” After this successful installation, the modular systems design was refined to suit a wider range of products and processes.


Manufactured to suit high temperature, high humidity environments, and high speed processes makes this very versatile and durable system an ideal solution for paper and textile manufacturers.


This revolutionary system will be making its debut at PACK EXPO in booth #S-1647 this year. As with all Fortress metal detectors, this system is Never Obsolete; parts and service are available for the lifetime of the detector.


Fortress Technology is the only North American Metal Detection Manufacturer that, since its inception in 1996, custom manufactures their equipment to suit their customers’ needs, application and specifications to ensure optimal metal detection. Fortress is a global enterprise with manufacturing offices in Canada, the UK, and Brazil.
