CheckweighingThe unique, low center of gravity, forward-facing control box of the Loma CW3 range minimizes vibration and enhances accuracy. The graphical color touch screen display is easy to see and offers a simple user-friendly menus. The CW3 range can be customized easily to suit your applications, with the optimum transport device and reject mechanism.

Furthermore, by networking these devices, we have succeeded in placing the checkweigher at the center of the production environment, making it a source of information, which can help improve your company’s bottom line.

Our CW3 range of checkweighers are designed and manufactured in the UK to meet the toughest of production environments, have quick-change conveyor parts and powerful AC motors. The tubular framework not only delivers a hygienic design but is flexible in the event you need to change transport or reject systems.

Whether you require a simple in-line “policeman checkweigher” or a fully-featured system with enhanced statistical analysis, we have a system to suit your requirements


Metal detectorThe award-winning Loma IQ3 and IQ3+ range of
metal detectors are the first to offer true variable frequency, operating between 40 – 900 kHz. The IQ3 and IQ3+ metal detector selects the correct operating frequency in seconds, eliminating past performance restrictions caused by limited frequency metal detectors. Changes in products or packaging that necessitate a frequency change no longer require the expense and inconvenience of operator intervention.
Loma IQ3 and IQ3+ metal detectors are UL and CUL approved, the first and only systems on the market to attain this approval.

Rapid temperature changes, vigorous and caustic wash-down regimes, high humidity and saline environments are just some of the factors that can take its toll on even the toughest environmental standards.

To provide added peace of mind in these harsh environments, Loma offers ultra-harsh metal detector search heads in the IQ3 and IQ3+ series. Advanced construction consisting of 304L stainless steel, polymers and resins create water and dust tight seals – perfect for improving sanitisation, preventing erosion and combating thermal shock. The IP69K rating ensures you have the most rugged system for your demanding environment.
