Italian technology used in Switzerland for sorting potatoes and onions

After six months of hard work, the Italian machine manufacturer Assomech received a very positive response to the installation of its first potato and onion sorting line, delivered at a packing station in the Swiss canton of Vaud.

"It is a simple but extremely versatile and handy line. It is controlled remotely and has sophisticated systems to ensure gentle handling of the potatoes and onions. This is because sorting machines for these two products are usually too rough, as if they were processing stones," said sales manager Peter Calisesi

"It was like love at first sight with the customer," added Calisesi jokingly. "We immediately understood the customer's request. This allowed us to work out a customized project, the result of which has exceeded expectations. We are delighted and flattered, and we are grateful to this company that has given us the opportunity to bring our brand to the Swiss market as well."

This is a potato and onion sorting line with feeding of the product in loading trolleys, pre-sorter, sorting bench with vertical fillers, remote control and PLC control.

As for onions, the line consists of receiving silos, rejection unit, sorting bench, double bin filler, remote operation and PLC control.

"All our designs are the result of an extensive prior inspection, because a processing line must fit perfectly into the building structure in which it is assembled. When everything starts with a customized project, the customer is guaranteed to make significant efficiency gains," concluded Calisesi.
