Conveyor Metal Detector

Metal detector
Web Tech AutoWeigh manufactures a conveyor metal detector known as the “MDX-1”. The “MDX-1Metal Detector is suitable for troughed or flat conveyor profiles.

The system comprises of:

  • Generator coil (engineered to the clients requirements)
  • Receiver coil (engineered to the clients requirements)
  • Electronic controller
  • Junction boxes
  • Support structure


  • The “MDX-1” detector utilises dual pulsed eddy current technology, which is more stable and sensitive compared to standard type detectors
  • Can be used on both synthetic and steel corded belts
  • Heavy duty design to reduce the risk of vibration causing “phantom trips”
  • Options such as flag markers and belt splice detectors can also be supplied
  • Outputs to activate the marker, stop the conveyor or operate an electro-magnet are standard

Installed equipment and options

Metal Detector Coils

Metal detector and electronic controller combination
Metal detector coil supports utilise the latest in durable materials, enabling it to withstand the harshest of environments. Extra supports eliminate “phantom trips”. Metal detector coils are fabricated to suit any conveyor width and conveyor profile.

(Optional) Metal Detector Marker Systems

Custom marker system
The MDX-1 metal detector can be supplied with optional burden marking systems including “flag” and “spray” types.

(Optional) Metal Detector Belt Splice Detector

Belt splice detector
As an option we can supply a proximity type Belt splice detector. This will allow belt splices to pass through without triggering the detector.
