New User Interface for Optical Sorter
TOMRA Sorting Solutions, Belgium, introduced a new user interface design for its Halo optical sorter.
The TOMRA Halo features advanced functionalities for a flexible and refined sorting of incoming crop, producing primary and secondary marketable pack and process grades. Each user can define their own sorting criteria and naming convention, removing the fear of the operator changing settings because they have set, saved and named them something else in the system.
Another new feature is that operators can now combine size of the product and color defect levels to manipulate the sort of the potatoes in order to recover more. The touchscreen drag-and-drop feature allows customers to decide, set and then clearly see which quality of potatoes goes to what sort exit. And, an at-a-glance dashboard displays product and machine data, including size and defect profiles of the product sorted.
Applications include all sizes and varieties of potatoes, carrots, parsnips, onions, beets, tomatoes and cucumbers along with peeled and unpeeled potatoes, peaches, pears, green beans, apricots and citrus fruits, such as oranges and mandarins.
