BEST Innovations in Sorting Technology

BEST (Belgian Electronic Sorting Technology) is an innovative company specialized in manufacturing sorting machinery for the food and non-food industry. BEST is using the latest and most innovative optical technologies (laser, camera, Fluo™, LED and x-ray or a combination of them) to achieve highest efficiency in the detection and removal of unwanted materials.

At the Anuga fair, BEST will show, besides the well-known and proven Genius belt sorter, also the new state-of-the-art Nimbus.

The Nimbus

The Nimbus is a laser/camera sorting solution that combines the efficiency of laser detection on foreign material, together with the accuracy of the camera detecting discolorations and shape differences in free-fall. The sorter detects all color, structure, size and shape defects from a stream of good products. Besides these conventional sorting methods, the Nimbus is also able to sort based on biological characteristics, such as chlorophyll (Fluo™), mycotoxins (Detox™), and water (SWIR).

To sort on shape characteristics, the machine is equipped with an additional module with a general shape sorting toolbox that adds complementary sorting capabilities by applying object oriented features like length, width, diameter, area, broken piece recognition, etc.

The sorter also features 3-way sorting, designed for the removal of unwanted products with high accuracy, very low false reject and an optimal yield. 3-way sorting capabilities on the BEST sorters feature two ejector modules, allowing processors to separate different reject streams that before ended up in the same stream.

The new revolutionary sorter has a new and more powerful hardware processing platform, allowing the implementation of new modules, like the BEST Smart Sort and BEST Flex Sort.

By analyzing intelligently the incoming products, the Smart Sort module helps the operator in setting parameters. This new feature ensures a faster and easy configuration of the machine. Also the operator has the possibility to adjust the sensitivity set by the Smart Sort module, according to the changing sorting circumstances.

The digital Flex Sort allows the operator to quickly switch from sorting one product to another without having to make any mechanical adjustments. It is a revolutionary technology that also ensures an improved contrast between good products and defects. By using this module, customers can maximize the ease of operation and uptime, optimize the sorting performance and minimize the investments.

Visit BEST at Hall 10.1 booth F010 to learn more about this new revolutionary sorter.

The Genius Belt Sorter

BEST will also show the GeniusTM belt sorter, which offers different inspection technologies located in several inspection zones, to provide enhanced detection efficiency. High resolution cameras (color or monochromatic), lasers and Fluo™ lasers can be combined with different types of illumination for each area. Products can be inspected from all sides (full surround view), on or off belt, allowing an optimal inspection on color, structure, shape and biological characteristics. The number, type and position of the cameras, lasers and lighting depend on the product and type of defects. State-of-the-art air guns reject any defects within milliseconds thus allowing the good product to proceed its way in the processing line. By doing so, the Genius™ achieves unequalled sorting performance and detects the slightest shades of discolorations, foreign material or other product related defects.

BEST will show other sorting solutions during the fair. Visit our booth F010 in Hall 10.1 to discuss with the company’s experts how BEST can find a customized solution for your sorting challenge.
