Through durable weighing, sorting and packing equipment

Newtec helps companies optimise production

Newtec’s weighing, sorting and packing solutions offer reliability and efficiency of production for customers in the food industry. With its focus on establishing long-lasting trust with customers globally, Newtec helps companies optimise production through easy-to-use and durable weighing, sorting and packing equipment, minimising giveaway and turning produce into highly competitive end-products.

Making better use of the raw material
The large amount of natural variety in potatoes means there is no easily expressible reference standard for comparison. The product can vary largely in size, shape and possible defects, so an optical sorting machine designed for potatoes would need a very advanced set of abstractions and concepts that efficiently capture the essence of what normal potatoes really look like.

Furthermore, potato colours can include white, yellow, red, purple, brown and multi-coloured, while dirt and loose skin can be left as residue inside the machine. With such a varied and cluttered environment, it is important that the computer vision system of a sorting machine for potatoes is robust.

The Newtec Optical Sorting Machine, Celox-P-UHD for potatoes uses the patented Newtec roller vibration system to achieve a complete 360⁰ scan. Bengtson explains: “Products move through the machine while they rotate, presenting the complete surface of the product to the camera as it passes through the inspection section.”
