Whatever the size or shape of your apples, GranTorino grading machine handles them all.

A heavyweight in weighing

The GranTorino apple grading machine volumetrically weighs every apple at high-speed using images from advanced cameras. Our unique TrueSort™ software also monitors the average product weight and capacity per hour.

It all measures up

Every apple rotates under the camera as 40 images are taken to measure the entire surface. This lets the machine calculate the precise diameter, length and surface area. It will also recognize shape related defects or doubles (2 apples in 1 cup).
Apple size sorting

Grade every color

Ultrafine color separations are created using TrueSort™ software allowing operators to quickly create or modify color profiles for apples. Then using live feedback from the cameras, the apple color is accurately graded.
