Wyma Solutions is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of post-harvest vegetable and fruit handling equipment, including carrot lines (small, medium and large), onion lines, potato lines and fruit lines.
Wyma offers world-leading handling, weighing, packaging and palletising equipment for fruit processing and packaging lines.
Pre-sorting is a common practice in the fruit industry for packing at a later date based on demand. The fragile nature of fruit requires gentle handling to avoid any damage. There is a choice of dry and wet handling.
Wet handling (as in this example) is the gentlest for floating fruit, using a water unloader for bin unloading, hydro-filler for bin filling and flumes for conveying. Produce bins are stacked by forklift and an automated arm lifts and submerges the bins in the receiving tank. The produce is floated and then flumed downstream to the sorting line, where it can be dried and polished. An optical sorter is utilised to grade the produce before it is filled into storage or shipping bins and then stacked.
A line configuration such as this would suit fruit operations focused on gentlest handling, quality, and requiring the flexibility to sort and store graded fruit.

This packing line (see link below) takes pre-sorted fruits and packs it to a retail package such as cartons, trays or bags. Fruit is received via a bin unloader onto a takeaway conveyor, where a brush roller at the infeed is used to gently control the flow out of the bin. The packing line can be designed with multiple packing lanes, either to increase packing capacity, or dedicating each lane towards specific packaging types.
A packing line such as this would suit any fruit pack-house that supplies retail customers, where freshness and time to market are just as important as brand presentation. To learn more about this line, or how Wyma may be able to assist you with your post-harvest needs, please contact your regional Wyma representative.
