Eriez Reports Record-Breaking Metal Detector Sales in 2015

Erie, PAEriez® Vice President of Sales and Marketing Charlie Ingram announces customers around the world made 2015 the most successful year ever for the company in terms of metal detector sales. “In addition to increased sales in North America, we experienced significant growth in the Pacific Rim, Latin American and South American countries,” says Ingram.

Eriez_NR-360 MD Record Sales

Eriez metal detection sales have been on the rise for the past several years, prompting the company to double its metal detector manufacturing capacity at the Erie, PA. headquarters plant in 2014. This investment enabled Eriez to shorten lead times, meet growing demand and keep metal detector manufacturing in the United States.

Ray Spurgeon, Product Manager – Metal Detection, says Eriez’ experience and longevity have been vital components in helping the company to surpass competitors and achieve record-setting metal detector sales. “As a team, we have hundreds of years of combined practice in the design, R&D and manufacturing of detectors,” he says. “Over the past two decades while a number of competitors have merged or closed, we have gained tremendous market share in all areas of food processing, rubber/tires, plastics, nutraceuticals and more.”

According to Spurgeon, Eriez has remained deeply committed to continual product advancement over the 30 years the company has been in the metal detector business. The recently introduced Xtreme® Metal Detector is Eriez’ seventh generation system.

The Xtreme Metal Detector has earned rave reviews from customers for its user-friendly interface which is designed after today’s smart phones. “Users have the main functionality mastered in five to 10 minutes,” explains Spurgeon. Advanced Xtreme Metal Detectors also boast greater sensitivity and offer SMART (system monitoring and reporting) capability and 24/7 support.

Eriez is recognized as world authority in separation technologies. The company’s magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, fluid filtration, flotation, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the process, metalworking, packaging, plastics, rubber, recycling, food, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through 12 international facilities located on six continents. For more information, call toll-free (888) 300-ERIEZ (3743) within the U.S. and Canada.

Is your plant vulnerable to cyber-attacks?

Easy steps to closing the door.

High profile cyber attacks on banks, charities, telecom companies etc have hit the headlines lately, but your plant is just as much at risk! Have you evaluated how secure your plant is?  

Modern industrial control systems (ICS) have an unprecedented level of connectedness to each other and to the outside world. This brings numerous benefits now that connected sensors are cheaper and easier to develop and gives the opportunity for much greater level of plant data interrogation. Nowadays even the most basic control system is invariably connected to a computer. However, this very connectivity that brings such great benefits also opens up a hazard – attacks from unfriendly parties.

There are potentially serious consequences should vulnerabilities to ICS be exploited.

Although there are various ways to attack an ICS environment, the most common methods to achieve practical impact on operations fall into three categories: loss, denial and manipulation. Cyber-attacks on ICS can result in numerous impediments such as: denial of service, unauthorised control of the manufacturing process, loss of integrity, loss of confidentiality and loss of an organisation’s reputation. Organisations in the process industry must approach the problem of ICS attacks pragmatically; “It is not a matter of if it will happen, but when it will happen!”

The processing community must complete the necessary assessment, engineering and instrumentation tasks to plan for and deal with the potential for attacks on ICS environments on the best terms. ICS can no longer use security through obscurity as a suitable kind of defence against cyber-attacks.

Internet security, panel2

In a bid to help industrialists better prepare for this possible infringement to their ICS network security, experts at the Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology have devised a one day short course that examines this topic from design through to installation. It will inform attendees of best practice in industry such as strategies, activities, or approaches, which have been shown to be effective through research, evaluation and implementation.
