Electrical Engineering/Metal detector product manufacturing.


Dear Prof Cleggsan

Do you feel that the metal detector product manufacturing could be a good Business product line startup?.

The metal detector product are installed in airports, shopping malls, Theatres, Parks etc.

Can you suggest some innovations in the metal detector product?.


It is a field already saturated with many manufacturers.  It could be a good investment if started up with new technology thereby providing low manufacturing cost and/or new method of detection.

Newest devices which 'see' through the clothing of the traveler are good for detecting one carrying illegal devices but has created very high objection due to its ability to virtually 'undress' the traveler.  This technology is not very popular after having once been the greatest innovation.

Hoope this helps.
