Enable low-carbon aluminum with high throughput sorting of alloys by series.
AUTOSORT™ PULSE redefines industry standards by enabling high-throughput production of alloy scrap fractions to create green aluminum. Our laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) technology is uniquely dynamic, offering you various scanning modes for higher precision sorting and long-term operational flexibility.
Thanks to the machine’s bulk infeed system and powerful combination of sensors, it offers high-capacity throughput that meets industrial production standards. What’s more, dynamic LIBS technology delivers high-quality aluminum scrap with less material preparation – even with painted, coated or dusty alloys. The high-purity fractions of series-based aluminum alloys allow direct remelting without downgrading valuable materials, providing a rapid return on investment.
The dynamic LIBS sorting system is ideal for processing large volumes of post-production and post-consumer aluminum scrap. Numerous material tests have demonstrated purity levels of 95 percent and higher. After sorting post-production scrap, the machine has consistently achieved these purity levels in both the 5xxx series and 6xxx streams.
Operators can also benefit from access to critical sorting data via TOMRA Insight – a cloud-based monitoring and digital application service. With its high safety standards and small equipment footprint, the sorting system is easily integrated into new and existing production facilities. AUTOSORT™ PULSE is a technological force driving the aluminum industry’s net-zero transition.
