Stonefruit grading technology
Our high-resolution cameras enable better visual identification of the shape and characteristics of any type of stonefruit. TrueSort allows customers to quickly establish “variety specific” grading parameters and programs. Defects can be identified based upon threshold on parameters such as, defect severity in size, severity in area percentage on the whole surface or number of defects on the surface. This allows us to provide consistent detection of the most prevalent external defects such as brown rot, bruises, blight, bacterial spots, scab and even internal quality such as firmness or softness.
Accurate colour separations are obtained through TrueSort™ intuitive software that enables operators to quickly create or modify colour profiles for different kinds of stonefruit. The average colour of the product can be used to differentiate different ripeness of the product.
To measure the entire surface, the product is rotated under the camera and multiple images are taken. Using these images, the diameter, length and volume are accurately calculated. Shape defects can also be detected.
Loadcells of machines with a cup-system can easily be integrated into our TrueSort system. Loadcells have a top speed of 15 products per second. Going beyond this speed is where our volumetric weight comes into play. Through the volume that is accurately measured over each image we can give a reliable estimated weight for each individual product.
