Sorting Machines

Optical sorters with high or very high-resolution cameras, equipped with different technologies depending on the physiognomy of the target product.

Raytec’s optical sorting machines can be successfully adopted for many kinds of food such as tomatoes, fresh-cut lettuce, frozen fruit and vegetables, preserved fruit and vegetables, tubers, snacks and dried products, seafood, wine, confectionery and pasta. Raytec’s technology is constantly evolving and can guarantee an ultra-clean design complying with EHEDG standards, as well as the removing of defects and foreign bodies of any kind.

Dryce

Dryce can dispose of colour defects, rotten produce and foreign bodies also if they are of the same colour as the good product. A vibratory shaker built in the machine conveys the product to a vertical chute ensuring a consistent trajectory.

OVERVIEW

 

Dryce is available in two versions:

DR-602:

  • 600 mm vision width
  • 96 ejection valves

DR-1202:

  • 1200 mm vision width

Discovery

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

OVERVIEW

 

Any defects that these products might have (colour, foreign bodies, rotten parts) are detected by Discovery thanks to an accurate analysis. The product is fed onto the inspection belt, which is designed to stabilise the product to prevent it from rolling about during scanning. The vision area and the ejection area are well-separated in order to avoid product splashes, so as 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.

Discovery

BENEFITS:

 

  • High production capacity: large quantities of product can be selected in a very reduced time
  • Significant labour reduction (up to 100% depending on the application).
  • High levels of product Quality and Safety which cannot be achieved with the use of labour
  • Reading of the qualitative and quantitative data of the raw materials analysed in real time
  • Automatic capturing and filing of the images of the rejected products for post-production analysis
  • Selection constant over time, even over 3 work shifts
  • Low maintenance costs

Raynbow

RAYNBOW is a sensor-based high resolution optical sorter with the power to scan 100% of the processable products (fruit and vegetables) thanks to its “instant double vision” system.

OVERVIEW

 

This technology, which has been made possible by high resolution optics has the power to reject colour defects, foreign bodies of the same colour as the product being processed and products that can no longer be processed because they are rotten.

The conveyor belt fitted at the infeed to the Raynbow is designed to stabilise the fruit or vegetables to be processed, so that they can be properly inspected and, if necessary, ejected. In this way, the products arrive both at the vision area and at the ejection area in the correct position.

The Raynbow sorter can be fitted with two ejection systems: an electro-pneumatically-operated blade reject system or an electrically-operated air-jet ejection system. In the 3Way option, the machine can be fitted with two reject systems which differentiate unusable defects from defects considered as a second product quality level.

SPRAY is an optical sorter with a very high-resolution camera designed to check products such as whole or cut vegetables and fruit.

Overview

 

The selection criteria are managed through a special software program in which the machine calibration data are entered, so as to obtain a tailor-made sorting recipe allowing to reject defects and contaminants as desired (i.e. colour defects, rotten products and foreign bodies, even of the same colour as the good product).

Rayvolution

RAYVOLUTION is an optical sorter with a very high resolution camera designed to check all kinds of industrial tomatoes (peeled and unpeeled).

Overview

 

This type of optical sorter has the power to reject colour defects, rotten tomatoes and foreign bodies, even of the same colour as the product to be subsequently processed. The product is fed onto the inspection belt which is designed to stabilise the tomatoes to prevent them from rolling around while they are being checked: the vision area is well-separated from the ejection area in order to prevent splashes of product from jeopardising selection over the course of time.

Typhoon

Typhoon is an optical sorter that fits sophisticated, very high resolution cameras with the power to detect defects, foreign bodies in the processed product and eliminate them immediately.

OVERVIEW

 

With the Typhoon management system, the types of defects to be rejected can be checked and changed: colour, products that are no longer usable and foreign bodies, even of the same colour as the good product.

The product to be selected is fed onto the inspection belt forming a thin layer and the vision area is well-separated from the ejection area in order to prevent splashes of product from jeopardising selection over the course of time.

Typhoon may be equipped with just one ejection system or, alternatively, with two of them for the selecting of both fine pulp and diced tomatoes. The main ejection system installed on Typhoon operates with the use of nozzles which create a vacuum in the area containing the defect; the machine can mount up to 176 suction nozzles, the diameters of which vary according to the product particle size (from a minimum of 8 mm to a maximum of 25 mm).

Typhoon

PRODUCTS: liquid or pulpy food products such as: fruit puree, tomato puree, extruded tomato pulp or pulpy, diced fruit, diced tomatoes

BENEFITS:

 

  • High production capacity. Large quantities of product can be selected in a short time
  • High levels of product Quality and Safety which cannot be achieved with the use of labour
  • Possibility to process highly contaminated products, restoring a commercial value to them
  • Automatic capturing and filing of the images of the rejected products for post-production analysis
  • Selection constant over time, even over 3 work shifts
  • Low maintenance costs
  • User-friendly software for ease of use and programming

Dionysos

The new multi-frequency sorter DIONYSOS automatically removes all contaminants from the inlet stream and ensures the top-quality grapes to the wine process, up to a capacity of 12 ton/hour.
Play video
Dionysos

Dionysos is equipped with a multifrequency pulsed LED lighting system allowing to overcome the limits of the laser. This is made possible by the BLUEIGHT technology, a package of functions based on 8 different processed images obtained by pulsing in a sequence different lights. By this technology it won’t be necessary to install a different color belt to identify the items, or to sort them by flying on rotating luminous backgrounds.

OVERVIEW

 

Powered by the BLUEIGHT technology it removes all contaminants such as rotten grapes, stalks, leaves and, if requested, green grapes, any type of plastic, irrespective of the color, any kind of insect, dry grapes even if they have the same color of the good ones. By the Double Rejection System (air jet + air jet) the DIONYSOS can be configured as a 3WAY sorter, to reject on a separate stream the dry grapes, usually addressed to 2nd quality wines. Avoiding the 2nd late fermentation due to the dry grapes this sorter helps in keeping the sugar level under control.

Dionysos

PRODUCTS: grapes

BENEFITS:

 

  • It captures images directly by the stream and check the adjustment’s results by the graphic interface
  • It analyzes the defects by means of HSL color analysis
  • It checks the chlorophyll content
  • It rejects by size (BLOB) and shape
  • The machine stops in case of animal detection (or a part of it)
  • It is able to detect transparent glass or plastic reject grapes with stem
