Jin Yi's overall assessment, now that operation of the sorting machines is underway, is that they are of high quality and very safe and reliable. The sorting machines are also energy-efficient, with the result that energy consumption is just a fraction of Jin Yi's operational costs.
As previously mentioned, Jin Yi's long-term goal, in establishing its own sorting plant, is to expand its value chain. Currently, in addition to the material sorted by Jin Yi, it is still using some sorted material sourced from other suppliers. Compared to the materials from other suppliers, those sorted by the automated systems from TOMRA Sorting are of consistently high quality. The contrast is direct and obvious. Initially, Jin Yi sorted materials on the basis of their colour, but automated sorting, based on the actual materials, is much more accurate and supports Jin Yi's long-term business goals.
"The TOMRA Sorting automated systems installed at Jin Yi are now in operation, and their performance is excellent. These machines are of high quality, and they are reliable and safe. TOMRA Sorting has also provided an on-time, highly professional service. The systems are very well designed and extremely effective as a sorting solution. Service and support before, during and after installation, were also excellent, with fast, on-time response to our needs. Use of the TOMRA Sorting systems has had a very positive impact on our business, and they have proved to be the answer to our long-term growth and expansion. They enable a high rate of throughput at the high level of accuracy our business requires."
