TOMRA Sorting Food will showcase its award-winning Nimbus BSI free-fall sorting machine at Foodex 2016, the United Kingdom’s premier event for the food and drink processing, packaging and logistics industries. Experts from the company’s UK agent, Stein Solutions, will be available on Stand E261 at the National Exhibition Center (NEC) in Birmingham, England, from April 18-20 to discuss the innovative machine.
Utilizing TOMRA’s biometric signature identification (BSI) technology, the Nimbus accurately detects the biometric characteristics of potatoes, frozen vegetables and fruits as well as dried fruits, nuts and other commodities. By combining the efficiency of laser detection with the BSI module, which has been specifically designed to identify the unique fingerprint of quickly conveyed materials, the equipment is able to sort based on biological characteristics which include chlorophyll, mycotoxins, water and oil content.
BSI technology meets strict food industry requirements for maximizing safe, top-grade food quality by rapidly detecting and removing unwanted material from fast moving processing and packing lines with the employment of high-precision air ejectors.
Steve Raskin, TOMRA Sorting Food’s sales director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, commented: “Exhibiting at Foodex enables us to meet existing and potential customers from across the food industry to discover more about their ongoing needs. The exhibition also provides us with a great opportunity to showcase the Nimbus BSI’s array of capabilities, and explain how it can help improve potential clients’ operations.”
TOMRA Sorting Food, part of Asker, Norway-headquartered TOMRA Sorting Solutions, has installed over 5,000 systems at the premises of food growers, packers and processers worldwide. The systems ensure an optimal quality and yield, resulting in increased productivity, throughput and an effective use of resources.
