High accuracy sorting of multiple material streams with deep learning technology.

GAINnext™ maximizes the recovery and purity levels of valuable materials for recycling. Its AI-based visual classification identifies thousands of objects in milliseconds, offering high-throughput processing with up to 2000 ejections per minute, depending on the application.

Thanks to its integrated deep learning software, GAINnext™ identifies hard-to-classify objects, reducing the need for manual sorting. The system automates complex tasks that cannot be achieved with traditional optical waste sorting. The intelligent system also classifies overlapping objects and calculates trajectory positioning for high-precision sorting. 

GAINnext™ makes it possible to process multiple material streams on a single sorting line. The future-proof, adaptive technology can be easily optimized with network connectivity to continually improve performance and reduce downtime. Cloud-based monitoring and digital application services are optionally available with TOMRA Insight.
