TOMRA Food will be demonstrating its newest sorting features live at Pack Expo 2019 for a number of selected industries, including: vegetables, potatoes and confectionery.
The candy & vitamin-enhanced confectionery industry
TOMRA Food will also be promoting its state-of-the-art sorting solutions for a variety of confectionery applications. Their Genius optical belt sorter uses advanced high-resolution camera and laser technologies in different inspection zones to reliably detect cross-contamination, starch and foreign materials, as well as identifying clumping and misshapen products.
This model has become a favourite in the North American market, where high demand for vitamin enhanced confectionery presents the challenge of separating almost identically coloured sweets with totally different vitamin-enhanced characteristics.
TOMRA Food will also offer the Nimbus free-fall sorter, which stands out for its capability to sort a variety of products – such as sugar-free, with-sugar and multivitamin sweets – with a variety of programs and applications, all on the same platform. This solution is in demand in European markets, where factories produce a variety of confectioneries and need to guarantee their customers a product free of cross-contamination.
Host commented: “While the confectionery industry hadn’t invested in sensor-based sorting technology until very recently, most manufacturers are now turning to these solutions to achieve the consistent quality levels and reliable separation required by their customers. This is a fast-growing market that presents a huge opportunity for TOMRA.
“Our sorters are meeting with great success in the markets for their capacity to provide a complete solution and for our ability to address the great diversity of sweet recipes at different manufacturers, tailoring our systems to each customer’s requirements. This year we have installed our sensor-based sorting systems in Europe and the United States, where they are achieving excellent results for our customers.”
TOMRA personnel will be on hand to explain more about all their newest sorting solutions at Pack Expo 2019, Las Vegas Convention Centre, 23 – 25 September, Booth US-7258.
