Visitors to Snackex 2015 will have the chance to question experts from Tomra Sorting Food about their portfolio of sorting equipment.
The company will be at booth #17 at Snackex at Istanbul Congress Center, Turkey, from 10-11 June.
Tomra’s team will talk about the benefits of a range of their sorting systems including the Nimbus free fall, Nimbus BSI and Genius.
Processors will be able to find out how each sorter effectively removes unwanted discolorations, foreign material and defective produce, while maximising yield, cutting waste and delivering high-quality, safe food.
A team of sales and product experts will be able to assist in finding the correct solution for each particular problem.
Visitors can learn about how the Nimbus free fall sorter, which received the Innovation Award at the INC Congress in Turkey, can be adapted to incorporate the company’s biometric signature identification (BSI) technology.
The new generation of Nimbus free-fall sorters combines the efficiency of laser detection with cameras to sort products by discolouration and shape, which is useful for nuts and raisin processors.
BSI technology is a spectral based optical platform, introduced to identify the material’s unique fingerprint, and create new sorting abilities for nuts, dried fruit, potatoes and other applications.
Tomra Sorting Food customer Stewart and Jasper US has benefitted from the Nimbus BSI.
Owner Jim Jasper said: "Our throughput has increased immensely and we have seen our labour expenses drop.
"On top of that, our product quality has improved. We have thoroughly researched the sorting industry and it goes without saying that Tomra’s Nimbus BSI is unmatched."
Food processors attending Snackex can seek advice on the Genius optical belt sorter, which is ideal for fries, crisps, chips, speciality products and dried fruit among other foods.
The Genius is a modular food sorting machine that can be tailored to the user’s unique requirements and needs.
With high resolution cameras and lasers, the Genius sorter offers a range of inspection technologies in different zones, achieving unequalled food sorting performance.
Tomra product manager Roel Molenaers said: "The Genius and Nimbus machines use combined technologies to meet the continuously increasing requirements of food producers and processors for safe and excellent quality output, by removing unwanted material highly effectively.
"TOMRA’S food sorting machines are not only the most efficient way to sort products; they are also a smart investment for businesses.
"We understand that sorting food isn’t a one-size-fits-all process and that is why exhibiting at events such as Snackex is so important."
