TOMRA Food, a company that designs and manufactures sensor-based sorting machines and integrated post-harvest solutions for the food industry, presents its premium TOMRA 5C optical sorter, its next generation of free-fall sorting equipment, Designed to help nut processors ensure food safety, meet customer product specifications and meet growing demand by reducing food waste and improving efficiency.
“What we really focused on when designing this machine is to provide the customer with high throughput, high efficiency, easy sanitation, and the next generation of big data,” says Parker Fales, Area Sales Manager. , TOMRA Food.
The TOMRA 5C combines sensors with machine learning and big data analysis to ensure the most accurate removal of foreign objects. With the machine, operators can see a clear picture of every product and foreign material, allowing processors to make real-time decisions that increase the chances of better profit, higher quality output and rapid return on equipment investment.
The sorter can also examine massive amounts of nuts and dried fruits while detecting very small imperfections, such as insect damage, mold, brown spots, shriveling, rancidity, allergens, encrusted shell and water and oil content with its high-resolution lasers, which also allow clearer viewing and more precise color sorting.
Additional benefits include:
- Simple cleaning and maintenance
- Biometric Signature Identification Scanners (BSI +), which scan materials with near infrared (NIR) and visible spectrum wavelengths
TOMRA Insight, the cloud-based data analysis platform connected to TOMRA 5C, enables processors to access actionable data that can be used to make informed business decisions. This integrated data platform enables improved throughput, greater efficiency, increased availability, and improved troubleshooting.
