Tomra Sorting Food will showcase its award-winning Nimbus BSI sorting machine at Foodex 2016, the UK’s premier event for the food and drink processing, packaging and logistics industries.
Utilizing Tomra’s Biometric Signature Identification (BSI) technology, the Nimbus BSI free-fall sorting machine accurately detects the biometric characteristics of nuts, dried fruits, potatoes and other commodities. By combining the efficiency of laser detection with the BSI module, which has been specifically designed to identify the material’s unique fingerprint, the Nimbus is able to sort based on biological characteristics. These include chlorophyll, mycotoxins, water and oil content.
“The BSI technology makes the Nimbus an ideal pre-sorting machine. By using lasers, BSI and extremely precise air ejectors, it delivers an innovative approach to sorting a wide range of nuts, individually quick frozen fruit and vegetables, other fresh, dried or frozen fruit, and an extensive variety of fresh vegetables. Due to its unrivalled capabilities, we expect our machine to be very well received at the exhibition,” said Steve Raskin, sales director for Europe, Middle East & Africa.
Last year, the Nimbus BSI free-fall sorting machine was recognized with the Innovation Award at the World Nut and Dried Fruit Congress. Experts from Tomra Sorting Food and the company’s UK agent, Stein Solutions, will be available on Stand E261 at the NEC, Birmingham, England, from April 18-20 to discuss the innovative machine.
