You need blueberries that look good, taste good and can travel. Ellips TrueSort™ software leads the industry in accurately detecting the most common defects and quality characteristics inside and out such as flower, slipskin, bruising, cuts, cell breakdown, compression damages, shrivel (dehydration).
It also allows you to sort blueberries into different classes based on softness, firmness and bloom. Great for meeting premium, local and export demands.
Even at incredibly fast speeds, TrueSort™ is able to accurately weigh every blueberry. It does this by weighing each one volumetrically using images from high tech cameras. The software also monitors the average product weight and capacity per hour and displays it on your visual dashboard.
From small to jumbo, the TrueSort™ software takes multiple diameter measurements to determine the size of every kind of blueberry. The blueberry rotates under the camera, so you’re able to measure the entire surface. Specialized algorithms then determine the shape of the product ensuring flat blueberries are sorted from those with a more rounded-shape.
The Elifab BerryClass achieves precision color separation by using live feedback from its high-resolution cameras combined with TrueSort software. Together they’ll grade multiple color classes and make sure no green or red berries are mixed in with the desired blue colored berries.
Ellips developed a deep learning toolbox called TrueAI. This toolbox is going to help you with near-perfect grading accuracy and detecting complex defects such as dehydration (shrivel), cracks, stem tears and mold. In addition, it offers sensational reliability in detecting stem and calyx. The new software has been trained using large amounts of data combined with the expertise of quality control personnel. You still want the best of both worlds: an operator who has knowledge of blueberries and how to target the right defects combined with this powerful new tool.
TrueSort’s™ easy-to-use dashboard gives real-time data such as the percentage of defective blueberries, the amount of waste and the distribution of different quality aspects for each batch. This lets you make accurate operational decisions on-to-go whilst also giving you the freedom to incorporate data from your sorting process into dashboards and ERP systems.
Always knowing where your blueberries are located, from infeed to packaging, is crucial to guaranteeing quality and safety. With end-to-end traceability, you can optimize your operating efficiency, analyze yields, and reduce food waste. Each package is labeled and can be tracked and traced back to the original grower and the field it came from.
Trusted by world’s best growers and packers, Elifab Berry Class grading machine is an industry-leading solution. Not only are you guaranteed the lowest total cost of ownership, but you’ll be able to stay at maximum speed to meet all delivery and quality needs.
