A visit to TOMRA's booth at Anuga FoodTec could pay dividends for food processors looking to drive up efficiency and production on their lines.
Consistently high quality, reliable ejection of defective products, as well as optimum recycling and less waste of valuable food - this is what TOMRA Sorting Food, part of the TOMRA group of companies with headquarters in Norway, contributes to with innovative sorting systems. As leading manufacturer of sensor-based systems in the field of food processing we will be showcasing our broad portfolio of optical sorters at the Anuga FoodTec in Cologne. These are used for a wide range of applications in the food industry - from fresh products to processed food - and ensure uniform quality standards and optimisation of production processes. The innovative systems provide high-precision sorting and thus contribute to a more careful handling of food products.
This is what trade visitors to TOMRA Sorting Food can expect:
TOMRA FatScan – In-line fat analysis
The TOMRA FatScan performs a sensor-based analysis of the fat content of meat such as beef and pork, whether frozen or fresh. The system reliably and continuously controls products of various shapes and sizes - both trimmings and diced or minced meat. Thanks to the transflexion technology developed by TOMRA, the fat content is determined with high accuracy for the entire product flow passing through the system and can be adjusted in real-time. This helps you avoid production stops. The user-friendly system with an intuitive user interface provides measurement data and reports at the touch of a button and enables complete traceability and documentation of all processes. The TOMRA FatScan helps users standardize and classify meat, optimizes the purchasing process through continuous quality control, and ensures an even more efficient use of raw materials - enabling users to reach higher margins. The result is end products of consistently high quality.
TOMRA QV-P – Poultry meat detection
The filtering out of poultry breast fillet, which is interspersed with firm connective tissue, poses great challenges for quality control in the poultry industry. With the TOMRA QV-P, a unique patented detection system for poultry meat, breast meat or fillets with this abnormality known as "muscle myopathy" or "wooden breast", can now be reliably sorted out. The system thoroughly scans the continuous product flow, classifies the meat in real-time and ejects flawed breast fillet. This helps you avoid expensive downtimes. The user-friendly system can be easily integrated into existing lines or is available as a stand-alone version. The recorded measurement data can be retrieved as reports at any time and ensure complete documentation and traceability of the processes.
TOMRA 5B – Optical vegetable sorting
The TOMRA 5B sorting machine sets new standards in the fully automatic optical sorting of food products. The belt sorter with a speed of up to 5 meters per second is ideal for the vegetable, salad and potato processing industry. Its smart surround view technology enables 360-degree inspection with a high-resolution camera and high-intensity LEDs. This ensures optimal product appearance - and thus reliable removal of foreign materials and defects. These are removed by high-speed ejectors. The user-friendly TOMRA 5B thus ensures the highest standards of food safety and food quality.
