Around the world, countless potato and carrot producers have are choosing for optical sorting equipment for their packhouses. This enables them to ensure consistent quality output and provides the opportunity to optimise an entire crop’s value.
One brand at the forefront of this technology is Newtec, an innovator of automated grading equipment for potatoes and carrots. The company’s Celox-P-UHD for potatoes and the Celox-C-UHD for carrots grade products by their quality, size and shape simultaneously.
With the option for up to 16 different outlets and either 4, 8 or 12 lanes, the Celox models offer vegetable producers a wide, customisable range of profitable ways to grade their produce, whether it’s a ‘perfect’ carrot for premium supermarket selections or a lesser-quality one for industrial processing.
Based in Denmark, Newtec has been engineering and manufacturing its optical sorting machines for more than 20 years. In 2007, it founded its subsidiary Qtechnology to develop intelligent camera technology for its sorting machines.
