Designed with the Future in Mind
The proven and robust design of X-TRACT™ has long convinced the most prominent industry players worldwide. Matthias Winkler, Product Manager at TOMRA, explained: “When our in-house team set out to design a new generation of X-TRACT™, it was absolutely clear that it should be sustainable, connected, and built for long-term performance to reduce operational costs.” Developing a new machine to meet the future needs of the industry involved collaboration with customers, design engineers, aluminum processing experts, metal application specialists, and service teams.
To extend the lifetime of the machine, the designers added enhanced sensor shielding in addition to its top-mounted x-ray source to protect its most valuable components and provide extra stability. The new sorting system that separates aluminum from heavy metals and super lights in a single step even comes with a 4-Year extended warranty on the x-ray source and XRT sensor to consistently meet high-performance standards and service levels.
