Food sorting and peeling system manufacturer ODENBERG will reveal its most advanced optical sorter yet to the European market at Agritechnica - the world's largest exhibition for agricultural machinery and equipment - in Hannover, Germany, on November 15-19.

Called Halo, the new food sorter has 100 times more processing power than ODENBERG's industry-leading Titan sorting system and it will be demonstrated by the company at the exhibition on Stand 04C08 in Hall 4.

Halo also incorporates a next generation vision unit which integrates near infrared (NIR) spectrometry, charge-couple device (CCD) camera sensors and light-emitting diode (LED) illumination.

This combination is mounted above and below the system's conveyor belt, enabling Halo to achieve unsurpassed levels of accuracy thanks to its ability to deliver an impressive 1mm resolution. The entire system is controlled by an intuitive touch screen to enable ease and flexibility of use.

Halo's sorting applications cover a wide variety of fruit and vegetables including peeled and unpeeled potatoes, carrots, dried fruits, cucumbers, tomatoes, peaches, pears, berries and cucumbers.

Such is the demand for the new Halo sorter that 23 machines have already been ordered ahead of the official European launch.

One of the first Halo purchasers was Primco, Europe's largest carrot supplier. The company trialled two Halo 1000mm sorting systems, with a capacity potential of 25,000 kg per hour, earlier this year in a three-way sort configuration at its plant in France.

The results were immediate with a two third reduction in the amount of manual labour required and a potential ten percent capacity increase. When necessary, the Halo systems dealt with input defect levels of 40-50 percent with ease. Following the success of the trial, Primco ordered a further four Halo 1000mm optical sorters.

Primco operations director, Guy Saint Lo, said: "With the purchase of the Halo we can achieve consistent end product quality with four to five people independent of the incoming quality of the produce. This means we don't have to reduce our production when we have a batch with a high percentage of defects. The sorting solution offered by Odenberg has given us stability and flexibility in the running of our plant."

Commenting on the introduction of Halo, ODENBERG's marketing & business development manager, Sean Slevin, said: "Halo sets new standards in food sorting and represents the apex of our product range due to its outstanding levels of performance.

"The demand for Halo ahead of launch is extraordinary, but it is justified because in every instance that it has been specified and installed the system has delivered increased capacity, line cost reductions and lower error rates.

"We are looking forward to the official European launch at Agritechnica where we will have the opportunity to show Halo to potential customers from across the continent's agricultural and food processing industries."
