The METAL SHARK® COMBI TU is a multi-segment sensor typically used over fabric, non-woven or paper webs as well as plates of different materials. It detects particles as small as 0.6 mm and localizes their position in defined segments of the product.

The METAL SHARK® COMBI TU is suitable for widths up to 5 m/16.6 ft. Customizable widths are available.

The COMBI TU can be operated in humid environments with ambient temperatures from -10˚C to +40˚C and product temperatures up to 65°C.

Delivery Scope

  • Detection unit (sensor) COMBI TU with freely selectable number of detection units and widths from 6.5 to 23 ft
  • Controller METAL SHARK®, PC with Windows Pro, 15" monitor and keyboard in control cabinet


  • Products that are conveyed in webs or plates
  • Quality assurance for incoming goods, outgoing goods or during running production
  • Machine and/or product protection in panel processing
  • Detection of broken needles and other metal parts in the textile and nonwoven industry
