    Kiwi grading technology

    External quality

    One of the biggest challenges in grading kiwis at higher volumes is that each kiwi comes in a different size and shape. The Elisam GranTorino handles each variation perfectly. With it’s unique rotating carrier you get a 360° view of each kiwi, allowing you to analyze the entire surface. TrueSort™ accurately recognizes the kiwis’ characteristics and successfully detects defects such as sunburn, skin cracks, russet, shape related defects, scar tissue, rotten fruit and even internal quality such as firmness or softness.

    Colour separation

    Based on live feedback from the cameras we can determine the color of the kiwi in order to grade the product. Ultrafine color separations are obtained through the TrueSort™ software that enables operators to quickly create or modify color profiles.

    Size separation

    Kiwis come in many different shapes and sizes, round but also oval-shaped. To measure the entire surface, the kiwi is rotated under the camera and 10 images are taken of each product. This permits you to calculate the diameter, length, and surface area. Shape related defects or doubles (2 kiwis in 1 cup) can also be detected.
