Optical sorter for fruit and vegetables

Discovery is an optical sorter with a very high resolution camera which inspects the product on the conveyor belt and is designed to check fruit and vegetables, both whole and chopped.

Any defects that these products might have (colour, foreign bodies, rotten parts) are detected by Discovery thanks to our inspection belt which is designed to stabilise the infeeding product to prevent it from rolling about during scanning, as this would produce unsatisfactory results.

The vision area and the ejection area are well-separated in order to guarantee impeccable selection, even over prolonged periods.

This optical sorter can be equipped with just one ejection air-jet system with 288 electrically operated ejector valves or, in the 3Way option, with two reject systems in order to differentiate a second product quality level.
