With subsidiaries and sales offices in North America, Europe, China and Australia, Lock’s machines are installed in more than 50 countries worldwide, where its sales organizations can call upon a team of hugely experienced technical experts able to create bespoke metal detection solutions to meet individual customer requirements, no matter how demanding.

Sustained investment in research and development enables Lock to offer innovative metal detection systems and solutions that consistently redefine industry standards, earning a reputation for unparalleled product quality, technical expertise and after sales support.

The flagship within Lock’s product range is the Met30+ Universal pharmaceutical metal detector, market leader – and the product of choice not only for pharmaceutical manufacturers and packers, but also for vendors of tablet press and encapsulation machines and their ancillaries such as dedusters and checkweighers, who engineer mechanically and electronically integrated systems incorporating Lock products for turnkey projects.

The benefits of Met30+ Universal metal detectors enjoyed by the pharmaceutical industry are developed for use in other applications, which means that cutting edge technology such as Lock’s signature ADC vector diagram – a clever tool delivering high levels of sensitivity to metal contamination in conjunction with extremely stable run ability – is extended to all customers, allowing them to achieve compliance with prevailing consumer requirements, retailer demands and HACCP without sacrificing productivity
