The APEX upgrade extends the operational life of the Thermo Scientific DSP2, DSP3, and Metal Eliminator products in the field, while also improving ease of use, reliability, and performance. Using innovation from the company’s APEX product line, the upgrade is said to reduce cost of ownership by protecting previous metal detection investments and enabling customers to upgrade all production lines to a common platform.

Additionally, the APEX technology detects metal pieces 5-10% smaller than previous version and offers improved sensitivity to reduce rework and scrap from false rejects. The simplified design also offers components and electronics that are easy to install, service, and clean.
