Bespoke systems can be retrofitted to incorporate smart solutions


One of our fundamental principles is to


design machines that are easy to use but employ advanced processing power – simple on the surface but sophisticated under the hood. For example, a number of our metal detectors, including our Interceptor and Stealth ranges, use an advanced algorithm and powerful ARM processor which allow for multi-channel digital signal processing to collate real-time data from transmission and reception in both inspection fields. Yet as digitally ‘smart’ as they are, all our


systems – including customised machines – remain simple to operate, featuring user-friendly controls, automated single-pass learning, and speedy calibration to deliver accurate system set-up within seconds. If clients require simple additions, such as


buzzers and alarms, or want to equip systems with the latest smart digital technology, almost anything is possible. Our standard data capture and reporting technologies – Contact and Contact Manager – provide traceable and auditable QA information, for compliance with food safety standards.


For even more


sophisticated operations, Fortress offers Industry 4.0- ready options, including OPC-UA Adapter and Ethernet/IP Adaptor. These facilitate smart information exchange between systems on a line. Yet also offer a seamless, automated method of collecting traceable and auditable QA information as well as real-time process and performance improvement data. Lead time for a bespoke system is only


marginally longer – four weeks at most. This is largely due to the extra design work required to deliver an on-spec machine that meets the exact application requirements. As a result of Fortress and Sparc’s innovative


and stable technology platforms, customised systems can be retrofitted to incorporate smart solutions. A robust build quality coupled with a modular approach and the use of interchangeable parts provides additional future-proofing value.


Curry sums up: “For any customised project,


collaboration is critical. Having worked together for close to two decades, Fortress and Sparc have engineered dozens of bespoke inspection systems, including the world’s first ever five lane multi-aperture ferrous metal detector and checkweighing system... Because both our companies are masters in our respective fields, when we partner together customers benefit from a higher specification combination system with synergy in test methods and product development.”
