Following the introduction of the Sherlock Safeguard®, Insort presents a video highlighting the food safety benefits of their latest sorter.
Once again - Insort shows that a video presentation of equipment does not have to be boring.
So without further ado, here is the video:
The heart of the machine is the latest generation of Insort's tried and tested Chemical Imaging Technology (CIT® Gen3).
This hyperspectral imaging technology, which is now being used for the first time in the further improved 3rd generation, can record the chemical composition of food in real-time.
This means that not only dangerous foreign bodies such as stones, metals, and glass but also all organic and unappetizing foreign bodies such as wood, plastics, insects, maggots, rodents, and much more are detected with a previously unattained scope and security.
The new software platform has Realtime Artificial Intelligence on board, which enables food in all of its natural occurring variability of chemical composition, color, shape, surface (pattern) and much more to be recorded by several sensors and to be classified with the highest accuracy.
Insort's Sherlock Safeguard creates a new dimension in the distinction between a good products and foreign bodies. Due to this property exact classification, there are hardly any incorrect classifications on the good product and thus the least possible false rejects in the industry.
This enabled Insort to optimize the discharge mechanism with 'Zero Touch Reject Technology', which is unique for optical systems.
Most digital sorting systems work with air ejection, where every foreign body from the good product flow has to be actively deflected with the help of a blast of air or hit by a paddle.
This type of active deflection of foreign bodies is very precise, but unfortunately prone to errors and often unreliable when it comes to removing a heavy piece of foreign material or that very last crucial defect to be able to achieve the highest industry standards.
Large stones or metal parts are too heavy, rubber-like foreign bodies tend to crack or bounce, glass bodies can shatter into countless pieces, light plastic foils or pieces of cardboard tumble back into the good product due to the air resistance or have a slower velocity.
Because of these disadvantages, the new Insort Sherlock Safeguard works in a different way: all foreign bodies, large or small, light or heavy, fragile, or rubbery, are passively removed from the product flow using the natural product flow gravity with the greatest possible safety by opening a trapdoor and making it disappear.
Matthias Jeindl, founder and CEO of Insort GmbH:
“Our development team has specifically created an affordable overall solution that closes the sensory gaps in X-Ray, RGB / RGBI cameras or laser systems and corrects the mechanical uncertainties of systems with air discharge.”
“This makes the Sherlock Safeguard® the best food safety guarantee for all food producers no matter what sorting technology your line consists of today!”
