Advanced Foreign Material Detection™ (AFMD) Technology by TOMRA

The Advanced Foreign Material Detector™ (AFMD) is specifically designed for the detection of defects and foreign materials that are difficult to detect because of similar structure or colour characteristics. The module sorts on product specific features such as sugar, oil and water.

With this technology TOMRA Sorting Food can deliver an optimal detection of e.g. quartz stones among raisins or blanched almonds. The optical configuration also improves the removal efficiency of foreign objects such as different colours of plastic among good products or pits among IQF processed fruit.

The results are very satisfying and false detections are kept to an absolute minimum, which guarantees increased profits for the processors and optimal food quality and safety for the consumers.
