Loma Systems® to showcase latest metal-detection, X-ray-inspection and checkweighing technologies at INTERPHEX 2023

By Loma Systems   


Loma Systems, a global leader in inspection technologies within the food, packaging, and pharmaceutical industries, will be showcasing its latest inspection technologies at INTERPHEX April 25-27, 2023 at the Javits Center, New York. The company is exhibiting at booth #1318D, located in the all-new Innovatech Gateway Pavillion near the main entrance.

The Loma team looks forward to welcoming visitors to their booth and displaying a variety of market-leading detection systems, specifically designed to help pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers maintain production efficiencies and compliance, whilst increasing their quality-control output.

On show will be Loma’s LOCK-PH Pharmaceutical Metal Detector. Capable of inspecting up to 30,000 tablets or capsules per minute, the LOCK-PH offers best-in-class calibrated detection levels from 0.25 mmFE to 0.3 mmNFE and 0.4 mm St/St, ensuring the smallest fragments of metal are detected and rejected every time. Also on display will be LOMA’s IQ4 BottleChek Metal Detector Conveyor. Designed to inspect pharmaceutical bottles, vials or tubs at the end of the packaging line for unwanted metallic particles, the BottleChek Metal Detector Conveyor easily integrates into any production line for side-by-side transfers.

For a broader range of contaminant detection, Loma’s X5C Compact X-ray system will be on exhibit. The X5C Compact detects all types of metal (i.e. stainless steel, ferrous and non-ferrous), calcified bone, glass or dense plastics and can be used for basic product integrity tests (i.e. missing items, object checking, fill level). It is especially good at inspecting products packaged in foil, such as blister packs, or heavy metallized film packaging and overcoming the problems with ferrous in foil metal detectors. The X5C is ideal for factories wanting to take the first step into using X-ray technology as it provides plug-and-play installation and software, reliable inspection, and low ongoing running costs.


“Once again, INTERPHEX provides a fantastic opportunity to connect with the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical community and update everyone on exciting advances here at Loma. We are particularly proud of our inspection and detection solutions specific to the sector and very much look forward to demonstrating our expertise in product safety and quality solutions,” said Alice Maniev, Loma’s North America Marketing Communications Manager.
