- Perfect colour & size accuracy
- Accurate defect detection
- Labour cost reduction
- Significant capacity improvement
- Increased process efficiency
Ellips leads the industry with its ability to detect both internal and external defects. Ellips’ own MSI5 cameras enable our solution to grade blueberries using the highest quality images taken with different wavelengths of light.
With these images, our software successfully detects and removes defects such as softness, dehydration, flower, bruising, cuts, cell breakdown, shrivelling and compression damages. Your overall results will improve through labour cost reduction for quality selection and increased process efficiency.
“100% surface inspection for unmatched results in selecting and classifying blueberries“
Ultrafine colour separations are obtained through our TrueSort™ intuitive software that enables operators to quickly create or modify colour profiles. Red and green berries can easily be separated from your full blue product. The result: a consistent and uniform pack color.
Softness & acidity
How soft is the blueberry? What percentage of the blueberry is soft – and what is the softest spot? Our system detects it all! Our software allows you to separate blueberries according to different categories of softness / firmness. This separation will determine which market to send your produce, i.e. freeze grade, local markets or export markets.
Our latest software upgrade also allows you to separate different grades of sour blueberries.
Our system measures the entire surface of the blueberry. To achieve this, the blueberry is rotated under the camera and multiple high resolution images are taken of the same product. This enables us to accurately calculate the diameter and surface area. Specialized algorithms determine the shape of the product such that you can separate flat blueberries from more round shaped products.
