The latest generation AUTOSORT®
Following continuous optimisation and further development of the long-established AUTOSORT® machines, TOMRA Sorting Recycling launched its latest generation AUTOSORT® in June 2020, paving the way for resolving even the most complex of sorting tasks. The AUTOSORT® combines the most advanced sorting functions and technologies available today in one machine.
TOMRA's patented FLYING BEAM® technology is integrated into the AUTOSORT® unit, guaranteeing an excellent, homogeneous light distribution. This ensures better detection and monitoring of the entire conveyor belt width of 2800mm, thus allowing more contaminants to be detected and ejected. Furthermore, equipping the latest AUTOSORT® machines with TOMRA's SHARP EYE technology ensures an improvement in light efficiency and sorting sharpness, facilitating the separation of difficult-to-sort fractions.
Philipp Knopp, Product Manager at TOMRA Sorting Recycling, explains: "The colour differences of the paper fractions in the main infeed material stream are often only minimal, which makes the exceptional precision of the AUTOSORT® in differentiating between them a major advantage. Consequently, over-sorting and the exclusion of recyclable materials can be avoided."
The AUTOSORT® units are extremely versatile and offer a number of advantages, as Jürgen Koppitz explains: "We’ve worked with TOMRA's AUTOSORT® units for a long time now and have always found them to be easy to operate and very adaptable to meet changing needs. This is particularly beneficial in the deinking process due to the continuously composition of the infeed mixed paper."
