  • Helius™ Tobacco 2400

    What differentiates the Helius™ Tobacco 2400 from the Helius™ Tobacco is that the Helius™ Tobacco 2400 is almost a true black-box sorter arrangement as it comes with all necessary peripheral items (infeed, outfeed and reject arrangement including all required maintenance and safety features). Having only one in and one outfeed, the end-users scope towards a sorter integration in an existing production line is limited to the absolute minimum.

  • TOMRA 3A

    Boasting the highest capacity on the market, the TOMRA 3A is the most reliable and cost-effective optical sorter available for growers. Built to last, it is a durable, powerful, and highly efficient labor-saving solution specifically developed to provide unrivaled foreign material removal and exceed harvest demands. The machine is easy to use, simple to maintain, and its smooth install makes for an easy fit into the harvest cleaning and grading line, or out-of-storage sorting.

  • TOMRA 3C

    TOMRA 3C uses a high-resolution camera and laser units. After poured into the hopper, the feed falls onto the vibration plate. It then falls further into the detection area after being evenly laid over the plate for dual-sided detection by laser and the color camera. In a matter of milliseconds, the intelligent rejecting system eliminates all defective products and foreign objects. Good products fall directly into the qualified product slot, and defects into the rejected product slot.
