A high risk, especially for companies within the food and pharmaceutical industry, is contaminants entering the production process. This can lead to serious damage to machines, possible injuries to customers and expensive product recalls.
The high costs and a potential loss of image that should not be underestimated and, for this reason, MARTOR have developed cutting tools made of metal detectable plastic (MDP) that are ideal for all staff working in highly sensitive areas, especially when manual cutting in or nearby the production area is required.
Our metal detectable safety knives are almost identical to their non-MDP counterparts - they are equipped with the same proven safety technology for the reduction of laceration injuries and are suitable for cutting all the same materials.
The only visible differences are the knives are un-lacquered to eliminate coloured chippings entering production and the use of a high-quality metal detectable plastic, developed together with a professional partner from the plastics industry. The detectability of this MDP has proven itself in daily practice with countless customers around the world.
The MDP knives can be traced by your metal detectors and special x-ray machines - the detectability of knives, parts, and particles always depend on the quality and settings of your on-site detectors. In order to calibrate those as precisely as possible, we recommend our MDP test cards. It is suggested that an appropriate MDP test card is put through your detectors before an investment in MARTOR MDP safety knives to check their sensitivity and afterward at regular intervals.
