Wire Recovery 

Previously, cable and wire materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting process, resulting in a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. TOMRA sorting technologies are capable of detecting these wires, transferring them to a metal product and then finally sorting them in a further step into a cable fraction of outstanding purity.

A good example of a high-quality product is copper wiring and insulated wires stemming from various treatment processes. Secondary copper smelting plants and cable treatment companies require high-quality input in order to work efficiently.

TOMRA combined two of its sensor technologies with SUPPIXX® image processing, making it possible to detect and separate even the smallest metal particles. The two signals are combined and processed to produce one statement, resulting in effective and profitable recovery of resources in ways previously unimaginable.
