The Cherry Class: sorting machine exclusively for cherries

Our cherry sorting machine uses TrueSort™ technology which enables you to select the desirable and undesirable characteristics of any kind of cherry. For each kind of cherry, our sorting machines can accurately select and classify the external quality.

Our cherry sorting machinery offers high-performance solutions to any need. 

It detects: size, colour and shape, weight and external defects

WEIGHT SEPERATION

Every single cherry can be sorted by calculated weight from using camera images and an adjustable weight parameter. The weight of the cherries allows the operator of the cherry sorting machine to monitor the average load on the machine.

WEIGHT SEPERATION

SIZE SEPERATION

Our state of the art grading technology measures the properties of every cherry, for which the stem connection and contour of the cherry is used. By using high resolution cameras, the cherry is rotated to accurately measure the diameter, length, defects, curvature and surface area. Our cherry sorting machine is capable of sorting 36 cherries per second per lane, while measuring size with an accuracy of 0.1 mm.

SIZE SEPERATION

COLOR SEPERATION

The colour of the cherry determines the quality and ripeness of the fruit. By using the colour module you can accurately specify which colour you would like to grade the cherry on. Our cherry sorting machine achieves perfect colour separation and can easily grade numerous colour classes.
