Metal content cable ties are specifically designed for use in the food and pharmaceutical processing industries. The metal impregnated material allows identification by metal detectors or x-ray inspection equipment. Panduit's metal detectable range of ties are only available in blue which also helps with detection.
Panduit offer metal detectable cable ties in nylon 6/6 and polypropylene. The polypropylene material provides excellent chemical resistance for use in processing and packaging areas where aggressive acid and alkaline chemicals are used to clean the equipment.
Hellermann Tyton has developed a range of nylon and metal identification cable ties with RFID tag to enable users to easily fix the RFID tag to equipment that needs to carry a serial number for tracking and identification purposes. They are sutable for the following areas: utility companies, healthcare, food processing, agriculture, hire shops and companies carrying out servicing and calibration.
