Detectamet precision metal and X-ray detector test pieces from CK Safety ensure that metal detection and X-ray equipment work correctly and conform to required quality assurance standards.  

CK Safety is an exclusive supplier of Detectamet metal and X-ray detector test pieces in Australasia.  

Having metal and X-ray detectable products online (such as mobcaps or beard snoods) to avoid contamination is only effective when the actual detection machines are also working to the specified detection levels. These detection machines need to be tested regularly using metal and X-ray detector test pieces to ensure they are compliant with the required quality assurance standards.  

Detectamet manufactures a complete range of precision metal and X-ray test pieces. The high quality manufacturing process, simple visible detection and colour coded verification make Detectamet test pieces a very cost effective way of managing safety aspects through quality control.  

Quality assurance and traceability

All test pieces are supplied with a full certificate of conformity for quality assurance purposes, which is also kept on record for three years. Each test piece has a number etched onto its side, which relates to the Certificate of Conformity supplied by the bearing manufacturer. The text ‘Detectamet’ is also etched onto each test piece, allowing for easy traceability with the company name also added upon request. Extra numbers can also be etched onto the test pieces if required to allow for individual identification.
