Nature is full of surprises; and misshapen fruit is one of them. However; buyers generally require uniform fruit and vegetables of standard size and good quality. That’s why; for many years; we have supplied sorting modules which sort by size; weight and colour; either simultaneously or independent of one another.
Infrared CCD cameras are used for sorting by size. An option is to combine the camera measurement with electronic sorting by colour and/or weight.
Sorting by size is adjustable in increments of 0.1 mm. The range of the size sorting process varies per product. The number of measuring groups you can adjust on the unit depends on the product and the sorting unit type.
The size sorting module also allows for selection of short and long pieces of fruit of the same diameter. Thi
