Latest sorting machine
Tomra Sorting Food has unveiled its new sorter for the vegetable, fresh cut and potato processing industries, the Tomra 5B.
To achieve optimum performance, the sorter combines Tomra’s smart surround view technology with a 360 degree inspection. The technology features high resolution cameras, as well as high intensity LEDs for improved light intensity for optimal product appearance. These features reduce false rejection rates and improve product quality by identifying each object, in turn improving colour, shape detection and foreign material, and ensuring product quality.
The sorting machine’s new customised, high speed, small pitch Tomra ejector valves allow for the precise removal of defective products, with minimal final product waste, at a rate three times faster than previous valves. Importantly, the valves have been designed for both wet and dry conditions.
Its development, with a belt speed rate of up to five metres per second to provide an increased hourly capacity, responds to increased capacity demands in the market.
