TOMRA Recycling's latest generation AUTOSORT® installed at EarthTechnica's test center in Japan

Asker, Norway

TOMRA Recycling, the leading global sensor-based sorting system manufacturer, has announced the installation of its new AUTOSORT® in the Yachiyo Technical Center of EarthTechnica Co. Ltd, an authorized dealer of TOMRA Recycling.

AUTOSORT® combines the latest technologies such as the patented FLYING BEAM® and DEEP LAISER® technology. The machine’s illumination unit, FLYING BEAM®, is positioned inside the scanner, thus protected from external influences, and ensures a homogenous light distribution across conveyor belts of up to 2,800 mm width. Another outstanding optional technology is DEEP LAISER®, which uses smart recognition to distinguish between two overlapping objects, enabling object-based recognition even at high throughputs. Also, an integral part of the sorting unit is its SHARP EYE that identifies critical chemical property differences and even the finest molecular differences in materials. Thanks to its higher light density and point-scanning systems, SHARP EYE not only separates single-layer PET trays from bottles, but also sorts mixed PET into different polymer types. Since its launch, the new AUTOSORT® has been evaluated highly, leading to its adoption worldwide, especially in Europe.
