The Manta™ high-performance sorter features a 2-m-wide scanning area that increases throughput within a space-saving footprint. Handling up to 27 metric tons of processed vegetables or fruit/hr, the sorter offers high-resolution scanning to detect and remove the smallest defects and foreign material. In addition to processed vegetables and fruit, the sorter is being developed for other industry applications. The sorter is configured with up to eight top-mounted color or Vis/IR (visible infrared) cameras and up to two top-mounted FluoRaptor™ fluorescence-sensing lasers. Optional bottom-mounted sensors can be added to meet the needs of each application. Extreme modularity allows the sorter to be reconfigured in the field.
