Key Technology expands VERYX line with C70 Digital Sorter
Key Technology expands its VERYX line of digital sorters with the addition of the new VERYX C70. This small chute-fed sorter is intended for low- to mid-capacity production lines. VERYX sorters maximize the accuracy of defect and foreign material (FM) removal and/or product grading based on objects’ color, size, shape and/or structural properties, according to the company.
Its 700-mm wide inspection zone enables VERYX to maintain a higher throughput within a similar footprint and better singulation of product to improve sorting accuracy, according to Key.
The VERYX C70 sorts free-flowing foods such as nuts, dried fruit and IQF products including fruit, vegetables, seafood and more. Chute-fed VERYX sorters feature Key’s patented Chycane chute, a concave-shaped slide that stabilizes product as it enters the inspection and ejection zones.
The system includes specialized infeed and collection shakers designed specifically for each application. Gentle handling minimizes product breakage and degradation.
Key manufactures VERYX sorters in both the U.S. and Europe, and supports customers worldwide through its global sales and service network.
