LAS VEGAS—Attendees at this year’s International Baking Industry Exposition (IBIE) will get a glimpse into the future of metal detection and checkweighing with the newest line of in-line inspection and weighing products from A&D Inspection, the newly-launched division of precision measurement technology leader, A&D Corporation.

Located in Booth # 11663 at this year’s exposition, A&D Inspection is featuring two flagship product lines: the AD-4971 Series metal detector and the AD-4961 checkweigher. The recipient of this year’s North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Competitive Strategy Innovation and Leadership award, the systems offer simple and flexible quality control solutions for baking industry manufacturers of all sizes, and are customizable to fit specific production line and in-line process needs.

“We are thrilled to be able to feature our newest business division – A&D Inspection – and its award-winning product lines at this year’s IBIE,” says A&D Americas director of instrumentation and weighing solutions Bill Maher. “The show’s attendees share an appreciation for innovation and a commitment to R&D in the industry, and will appreciate the infusion of precision measurement technology from other A&D businesses into our new inspection solutions.”

A&D Inspection’s products were designed to bring new levels of critical control and quality assurance for businesses across a wide range of industries, including the baking industry.

“We offer solutions with extreme flexibility and precision, reducing production-associated costs and allowing easy integration into existing production lines to ensure highest quality assurance at critical control points,” says A&D Inspection product manager Daniel Cannistraci.

Product Line-up at IBIE 2016

  • AD-4971 Series metal detector utilizes proprietary digital signal process (DSP) technology to achieve high-sensitivity metal detection through easy-to-use operation, allowing companies to provide safe products to their customers;
  • AD-4961 Series checkweigher also utilizes DSP technology created within A&D’s Automotive group to deliver an incredible level of accuracy in high-speed weighing.  This ensures organizations can consistently achieve production balance—minimizing the distribution of materials above or below specified weights.

“As a nod to our goal of bringing new levels of precision control to assembly line processes of all sizes, our product solutions can also work in tandem with one another through simple digital input and output mapping,” says Cannistraci. “This provides our customers with the ability to more precisely control their production quality as well as implement additional functionality, such as a rejector stage, to further enhance product quality and compliance.”
