The invisible is now visible with OSP sorter

With ever increasing quality standards globally, random sampling is not enough, which is why vision technologies are becoming the most important tool in guaranteeing that quality standards are maintained.

Polish company Sorter, offers an optical product sorter OSP for fresh, dried and frozen vegetables and fruit, leafy products and soft fruit, such as strawberries, blueberries or cherries. The machine is equipped with a linear illuminator and a camera for monitoring a free fall of the products. A visible spectrum makes it possible to analyze the color of the sorted object, whereas the IR (infrared) identifies damages not visible with a naked eye.

"This machine’s and the software’s main aim is to control the quality of the product, to ensure that no unwanted foreign material gets into food in the production process. You receive only top quality product, for example only blue, round, fresh berries of a certain diameter." explains Anita Kacprowicz from Sorter.

The main functions of the OSP models are; colour and shape analysis, internal and external quality analysis, detection of unwanted material such as: twigs, leaves, stones, snails, worms, etc. and defects detection such as: mould, mechanical damage, insects damage, immature or overripe fruit, nut shells.

The sorter is equipped with our proprietary vision system ViSort, where the products are carried on a belt conveyor and undergo camera inspection during a free fall. The product is not carried in cups as they are with other sorting systems.

"The better the manufacturing the process is automated, the faster and more efficient it becomes. The quality of production and smooth monitoring becomes more important than ever. Cameras, optical components and 3D measuring techniques identify the products features and defects." concludes Anita.
