Cherry Tomato grading technology
Ellips leads the industry with its ability to detect both internal and external defects of cherry tomatoes. The Ellips TrueSort™ Quality system accurately detects the most common defects such as rot, splits, cracks, stem, cell breakdown, cuts and skin bug marks. In addition, you can accurately determine the sweetness of cherry tomatoes with brix measurements. This allows you to guarantee premium prices for high-value markets. Lastly, the software allows you to separate cherry tomatoes into different classes based on softness. This is how you will get your cherry tomatoes sorted for premium, local and export demands. The ultimate result are cherry tomatoes that look good, taste good and can travel.
The color of the cherry tomato is highly represenative of the quality and ripeness of the fruit. The Elifab Tomato Class achieves perfect color separation by using live feedback from the high-resolution cameras. With the TrueSort software, you can grade multiple color classes. In this way, different shades of red, yellow, and green cherry tomatoes can easily be sorted.
From small to large cherry tomatoes, the TrueSort™ software takes multiple diameter measurements to determine the size of every kind of cherry tomato. The cherry tomato rotates under the camera, so you are able to measure the entire surface. Specialized algorithms determine the shape of the product. Through size measurements, defects such as misshaped products can also be sorted out.
Accurate weighing is possible, even at high speed. The weight of each cherry tomato is calculated volumetrically via images from high tech cameras. The TrueSort™ software monitors the average product weight and capacity per hour.
