Herbert’s Oculus optical sorter sales to France

April 24
12:09 2013

Herbert’s new Oculus optical sorter is the next generation in optical sorting for potatoes and, since it first saw the light of day at last year’s Interpom, it has been generating considerable interest amongst growers, packers and processors alike. 

The first two machines were sold direct from the stand at Interpom: the first to existing Herbert customer, potato growers Matinollin Peruna who are based in Tyrnävä, Finland and the second to Pauwels through Herbert’s French distributor Filpack Groupe. This is the first Herbert machine for Pauwels, who are long-standing Filpack customers. They were impressed by Oculus’s gentle handling and ability to sort smaller varieties using smaller delivery rollers.

Meanwhile interest remains exceptionally high. At Herbert’s UK headquarters in Wisbech, demonstrations over the past three months showing Oculus in action have attracted customers from all over Europe. The demos have shown that Oculus technology offers more efficient and more accurate sorting, better detection of greens through the use of infrared cameras, easier maintenance and more effective hygiene control.

Herbert’s Adrian Head said: “This new technology will enable growers and processors to achieve a better and more consistent quality of product, identify rejects more effectively and minimise production downtime. The customers we have seen are currently using a range of equipment from ourselves and other manufacturers and we are very pleased indeed at the positive feedback we have been receiving.”

If you would like to see the Oculus in action contact Herbert for a demonstration.
