Ingivision S.L.L., a recently founded firm creating technology for fruit sorting, attended the recent Fruit Attraction 2012 fair in Madrid, where it promoted a new modular electronic system, adaptable to any already existing fruit and vegetable sorting machine.
"Although Ingivision was founded this year, we have 20 years of experience creating this type of electronics," explains Vicente Ribera Mascarós, from Ingivision.
Ingivision creates electronics to measure the size, colour and weight of several fruit varieties such as oranges, clementines, kiwis, apricots, etc., and vegetables such as peppers, tomatoes or onions. "It is a modular system which can be adapted to any product."
Vicente Ribera Mascarós, at Fruit Attraction's Ingivision stand.
"We have one camera per line and a weight control system, but we do not work on the evaluation of the fruit's internal quality," explains Vicente. "We worked on quality control for three years, but we believe that the amount of necessary parameters to achieve this hinders its implementation. In terms of size, colour and weight, it is worth mentioning that it is a low cost system for markets such as Spain, Italy, Portugal, Morocco, Algeria, South America, etc., where functionality, productivity and ease of use are demanded.
It has a very advanced system to measure fruit colour. "The machine uses a mathematical system which converts the coloured surface into a line to classify the fruit more easily," explains Vicente.
Additionally, it can measure maximum and minimum diameter and surface. "It can measure the fruit's surface to facilitate its packing in boxes. It can process up to 20 fruits per second in optical mode and up to 14 fruits per second in weight mode," affirms Vicente.
The main target markets for Ingivision are South America and southern Europe.
