TOMRA to showcase its world-class sensor-based sorting solutions at RWM Expo 2023
Visitors to RWM Expo 2023, which takes place on 13-14 September at the NEC in Birmingham, will have the opportunity to find out about TOMRA’s world-class sensor-based sorting solutions.
TOMRA’s flake sorting solutions are capable of detecting and accurately sorting by polymer type, as well as separating different colours, simultaneously generating multiple fractions. Regardless of the polymer application, TOMRA’s flake sorters offer unrivalled versatility, flexibility, and performance, and generate reliable flake quality comparable to virgin polymers. By integrating the most advanced flake sorting technologies in a recycling plant, materials can be shredded and washed in a single line before entering the flake sorting process. This, in turn, eliminates the need for multiple lines or batch processing. Embracing these solutions gives recyclers access to vast quantities of post-consumer materials to create high-purity fractions of rPE and rPP.
TOMRA’s experts will also be on hand to talk to visitors about a wood recycling application which combines TOMRA’s AUTOSORT™ unit with the company’s deep learning-based sorting add-on, GAIN™. The result is a solution which allows companies in the wood recycling sector to optimise their wood sorting processes. With sophisticated sensors and the power of artificial neural networks, GAIN™ goes the extra mile to classify and purify wood chips by distinguishing between various types of wood-based materials, including MDF (medium density fibreboard), HDF (high density fibreboard, WPC (wood polymer composites), OSB (oriented strand board), chipboard and plywood. Previously, these materials could not be separated based on their form and texture. When used in wood sorting, GAIN™ delivers exceptional results, and is proving to be an extremely effective, scalable, and flexible solution.
