Food sorting machines bring clarity
A new way of designating food sorting machines has been announced by Tomra to bring clarity and simplicity to the way they can be identified and specified by customers.

Tomra’s new sorting machines will be classified in platform series numbered between one and five, with the numbers being used for increasing application complexity.

The 1 Series platform sorters will typically be used for less complex sorting applications, whereas the 5 Series platform sorters are suited for more complex work.

The classification is based on sorting performance and the markets the machines will address. The number is then followed by the machine’s platform type, where A stands for ‘in-air’, B for ‘belt’ and C for ‘chute’.

The first of the new generation machines to be named this way is the Tomra 5B, a modern sorter for the vegetable, fresh cut and potato processing industries.

The second machine to be launched is the Tomra 5A, which sorts whole unpeeled and peeled process potatoes.
