Continuing a tradition of pioneering, TOMRA has engineered multiple state-of-the-art sorting machines and technologies applicable for numerous applications that will be at center stage at IFAT:
The AUTOSORT™ combines the most sophisticated technologies in only one machine. With a flexible sensor configuration for a future-proof sorting system, it accurately recovers recyclables from mixed waste streams and helps meet the requirements of a dynamic market landscape. What’s more, the machine is displayed at IFAT, inviting visitors to learn more about its capabilities on-site.
In addition to AUTOSORT™, TOMRA presents its complementary products namely AUTOSORT™ SPEEDAIR for film and lightweight packaging sorting as well as AUTOSORT™ CYBOT for final automated quality control in polymer applications. The increasingly stringent quality requirements for plastic recyclates and recycled content targets ask for technological advancements and optimized processes. Therefore, TOMRA will present its flake sorting units AUTOSORT™ FLAKE and INNOSORT™ FLAKE both of which are indispensable systems for flake purification and upgrading plastics.
In addition to its full optical sorting solution for waste applications, TOMRA is leading the change in several additional segments. In metals recycling, the company will stress its recently launched new X-TRACT™ which is equipped with leading-edge technologies enabling a powerful and precise sorting of aluminum, e-scrap, post-shredder materials, and non-ferrous metals. The new unit recovers high-value materials from complex material streams and creates furnace-ready aluminum fractions, giving metal recyclers and smelters a competitive edge for their operations.
In its role as an industry pioneer, TOMRA continuously works on innovations to sort materials that have previously been hard or impossible to separate. One of the most recent examples is GAIN
, its deep-learning-based add-on for AUTOSORT™
