EQRAFT presents an optical onion sorting machine that analyses aspects like colour, shape, weight and quality
The Eqraft optical equipment quickly grades onions according to their colour, shape, weight and internal and external quality. During the process, a conveyor belt carries the onions. They are selected and placed in individual compartments, where the Modesta Blower Beam removes loose skin and earth. The company has deliberately chosen to use these compartments instead of rollers, so that data can be collected without movement or damage, and as individual compartments. The machine can determine the parameters of each onion and distribute them in different boxes through its six outputs.
With this new image analysis method (Artificial Intelligence), in addition to our excellent software, a computer can be taught not only to recognise a feature, but also to understand it. This is the same type of technology used by a Tesla vehicle, for example, which can learn to recognise and judge new situations to charge thousands of traffic situations in its system. Thanks to this technique, the optical sorter can sort onions according to their degree of deterioration, shape, and many more parameters.
EQRAF will be at Fruit Attraction on stand 7F05
