Recently, the second TOMRA citrus intelligent sorting line introduced by Xiangjia Juyou Agricultural Co., Ltd. was officially put into production. It forms a 12-channel sorting line with the first one put into operation in the previous year, which can be operated independently or together. So far, the annual processing capacity of Xiangjia Juyou can reach 100,000 tons.
Two citrus intelligent sorting lines can be operated independently or controlled together
Chen Lingjiao, general manager of Xiangjia Juyou, said: "Since its establishment, Xiangjia Juyou has adhered to high standards in every link from organic planting, sorting, and packaging to brand cultivation and market supply. TOMRA sorting line has very high accuracy, perfectly matching our needs."
From manual operation to intelligence, Shimen Tangerine goes to the world
The introduction of two TOMRA citrus intelligent sorting lines for two consecutive years is an essential strategy for Xiangjia Juyou to build its brand. "The core part of TOMRA equipment is to be able to sort the external and internal quality of citrus. The external quality sorting includes color, blemishes, various diseases, and insect pests, and the internal quality includes sugar content and acidity. The accurate sorting enables precise sales of our terminals." said Jia Kaijun, head of Xiangjia Juyou Fruit Department.
Accurate sorting paves the way for different brand series
These two intelligent sorting lines can not only accurately divide the fruit into different grades, but also sort different products such as tangerines and oranges simultaneously. This allows Xiangjia Juyou to carry out motorized adjustments in production and greatly enriches its product line and brand diversification. It can not only take the high-end boutique line but also take into account the low-end and deep-processing markets. Aiming at different markets, Xiangjia Juyou launched a series of brands such as "Axiangjiaguo" and "Xiangjia Juyou".
In addition, during the design process of the production line, considering Xiangjia's future plans for foreign markets and the different process requirements for citrus sorting in domestic and foreign markets, TOMRA designed different automation control processes to switch flexibly according to the market.
