180 Degrees is a rapidly growing Auckland company producing a range of baked biscuits, snacks and crackers. With export markets really taking off, 180 Degrees have begun a major investment programme to expand production capacity and improve the efficiency of their plant.
Quality is the big driver behind 180 Degrees investment programme, so it was a priority for company director Nigel Cranston to make sure 180 Degrees had the best available metal detection technology in place.
After looking at all the options 180 Degrees selected a Sesotec Varicon+ metal detector supplied by Reynolds Group, featuring a C-SCAN multi-frequency detector tunnel. The Varicon+ metal detection system detects all metal contaminants (ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless steel) – even when enclosed in the product. This provided the best possible level of detection for all metal types across the full range of products, and extremely easy set-up and operation.
Nigel noted, “We have worked with Reynolds Group for our coding requirements for many years, and knowing that our new quality control systems are supported by such a great partner is reassuring.”
