What's the turnaround time?

We have models on-hand to accommodate most sizes of packages, but there is always a chance another customer will have needed the same size you do, and they’re not done with it yet. Just submit a form or call in and we’ll let you know if we have it.

Our stock is rotating, sometimes including Sartorius, Minebea, and CEIA, but our typical metal detectors are Fortress.
