Key Technology is a leading manufacturer in the packaging industry, and in maintaining their reputation they have released a new convenient digital sorting platform, VERYX™. The platform is designed to minimize maintenance and sanitation requirements, further reducing downtime and production line operating costs.
The platform includes a system of 700mm-1400mm chute-fed and 700mm-2100mm belt-fed sorters that utilize a common user interface for simplified controls. The system eliminates the need for operators to interact with the machine, and optimizes performance.
The design also features Pixel Fusion, an advanced camera and laser sensor detection feature that fuses sensor data at a pixel level to more accurately identify and remove product defects. This detection system is customizable for each application.
Other features that come with VERYX™ include self-adjustment algorithms,smart alarms, auto-learning, Sort-to-Grade™, FMAlert™ and predictive system diagnostics. These features allow for the machinery to make effective sorting decisions without any assistance from packaging line operators.
Subsequently, the VERYX™ platform reduces operator qualification requirements, giving managers the ability to hire and train operators more quickly when introducing them to the production line.
The VERYX™ system is intended for sorting of a variety of food products including fresh, dried and frozen fruits and vegetables, nuts, and more.
