Automatic product sorting is becoming ever more important in the food-processing industry
Sesotec is one of the world's leading suppliers of machines and systems for product inspection and product sorting. At the Fruit Logistica 2016 in hall 7.1C at stand B-02 Sesotec for the first time presents its newly developed CAPTURA FLOW food sorting system. In the food industry these sorting systems are used to remove vegetable and non-vegetable contaminations and to thus guarantee consumer protection. The systems also detect and remove product defects and thus maximize the quality of the end product.
The new CAPTURA FLOW sorting system was designed to specifically meet the requirements of the food industry with respect to highest hygienic design demands. In the development of this system Sesotec primarily focused on quick and easy cleaning and attached great importance to open design and disassembly without tools, e.g. implemented with the quick-release conveyor belt. Individual light and air-blast units make it possible to optimally match the system to the sorting task and simultaneously guarantee optimized energy and compressed-air consumption.
For the food industry Sesotec with the CAPTURA FLOW sorting system offers an economically efficient solution for the sorting of fresh, frozen, dried, cut, poured, and packed products. The system ensures that consumers are reliably protected against a multitude of contaminants and impurities such as glass, wood, cardboard, metals, plastics, stones, and also insects, rodents, etc... Products of incorrect color, shape, or with partial defects also are detected and separated.
"With the variable use of sensors the system offers the advantage of great flexibility. Depending on the type of food that should be sorted the multi-sensor CAPTURA FLOW system can be flexibly adapted to the respective sorting requirements by combining various sensors. The modular design also allows sensor upgrades at any time, which for the customer means that the system is a safe investment for the future", summarizes Oliver Uhrmann, head of Sesotec's Business Unit Sorting Food.
