Automated Produce adds to equipment line

Produce veteran Mike McKnight in early April announced the formation of his new company, Automated Produce Equipment, in Marietta, Georgia. It now provides an assortment of produce machinery and packaging solutions well-suited to the onion, potato and carrot industries.

Raytec, an Italian company that today has more than 1,300 sorters installed worldwide, is one of the manufacturers Mike has partnered with.

This week Mike made a statement that he can provide Fototrainer Technology, with a combination of four analyses that make the system “very efficient on contaminant detection.” The system can be equipped with three different light combinations.



Also, the Raytec Raynbow STD Sensor Sorter, with electro-pneumatic ejection, provides high-resolution sensor/sorting that is with Visible Color and NIR technology, and the High-Speed Raynbow has 60 percent more capacity than the standard Raynbow.



The sorters are based on optical sensor, high-resolution cameras and x-ray, and the technology can be used on fresh, frozen and dry products.
