A heavyweight in weighing

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

Every date 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 dates in 1 cup).

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