17.07.2017 Digital sorter offers advanced cameras and laser sensors

Key Technology, Walla Walla, WA, has expanded its VERYX® family of digital sorters with the introduction of the VERYX C70, designed to sort line capacities ranging from less than one tonne up to 5t of product per hour. Its 700mm wide inspection zone is more than 10% wider than other sorters in its size category. This wider inspection zone enables the machine to maintain a higher throughput within a similar footprint. 
Like the high capacity C140 sorter, the C70 sorts free-flowing foods such as nuts and dried fruit as well as fruit, vegetables and seafood. These two chute-fed sorters complement Key’s belt-fed VERYX sorters, which can be configured for wet and frozen potato strips and specialty potato products, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables, leafy greens, potato chips and other snack foods and confections 
Chute-fed VERYX sorters feature Key’s patented Chycane® chute, a unique concave-shaped slide that stabilizes product as it enters the inspection and ejection zones to produce a consistent trajectory that improves sorting accuracy. The systems include specialized infeed and collection shakers designed specifically for each application to maximize sorting performance. Extremely gentle handling minimises product breakage and degradation, which is especially important for fragile, high-value products. In Europe the company has manufacturing facilities in Beusichem, the Netherlands, and offices in Hasselt, Belgium.
