The next generation of cherry grading


Ellips developed a new technology called True-AI.

In addition, it offers sensational reliability in detecting stems, neighboring stems and stem attachment points. The new software has been trained using large amounts of data combined with the expertise of quality control personnel.

In the past, when we received large quantities of fruit with inconsistent quality, we had to analyze them at very low speeds to identify defects. Today, with the help of True-AI, we can maintain high processing speeds, significantly improving throughput.”

“The key points for choosing the Elifab Cherry Class was the simplicity of machine handling and the fact that is backed up with the Ellips Grading Technology”

Lee Port | Mansfields | United Kingdom

“What we like about the Ellips technology is that the operator is in full control. We think that’s a big advantage. Too many other manufacturers are trying to basically control the machine and let the operator make minimal adjustments."

Advanced cherry grading

Accurate quality checks

You need cherries 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 stem- and nose cracks, rot, splits, softness, bruising, pitting, blemishes and more.

It also allows you to sort cherries into different classes based on softness and firmness. Great for meeting premium, local and export demands.

A heavyweight in weighing

Even at incredibly fast speeds, TrueSort™ is able to accurately weigh every cherry. 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.
Cherry weight sorting

Next level measuring

From small to larger cherries, the TrueSort™ software takes multiple diameter measurements to determine the size of every kind of cherry. The cherry rotates under the camera, so you’re able to measure the entire surface. Specialized algorithms then determine the shape of the product. Through size measurements, defects such as misshapes, pairs, and spurs are identified.
Cherry size sorting

Grade every color

The Elifab CherryClass 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 that there are no yellow and orange cherries within the required red, dark red, and black cherries.

Stay in full control

TrueSort’s™ easy-to-use dashboard gives real-time data such as the percentage of defective cherries, 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.

End-to-end traceability

Always knowing where your cherries 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.
