A Leader in Automation & Optical Sorting

34 years of experience in optical sorting.

More than 300 optical sorting systems installed.

slide5

Challenges & Goals of E-Scrap Recyclers

  • VERY inhomogeneous input materials: - Particle size distribution - Material Types
  • Difficulty in identifying (labels) different plastics and other materials.
  • Not fully developed markets in the US for durable plastics (domestic vs. export).
  • Increase Recovery/Yield - Maximize Profits

Most Commonly Targeted Materials

  • ABS
  • HIPS
  • PC
  • Circuit Boards
  • Non-Ferrous Metals (incl. stainless)
  • Ferrous Metals
slide11

e-Sort™ Basics

  • Optical Sorting Module
  • Uses Near-Infrared (NIR) spectrometer to identify different plastic resins.
  • Uses Induction Metal Detector to identify ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless metals.
  • Color Detection Built-In or Optional.
  • Uses high-speed air jets to physically separate the targeted materials.
  • Installations in Ohio, California & Hong Kong.

e-Sort™ Advantages

  • One machine processes up to 3,000 kg/hr .
  • Up to 1600mm (64”) wide.
  • Features dual-eject system that is able to generate three output products from one input stream in just one pass: two positively ejected streams, one negative pass-through stream.
  • Can process multiple input streams in a batch-mode setup. Program change is done with just one button.
slide17

e-Sort™ Setup Configuration

ABS is targeted for upward ejection; Printed Circuit Boards are targeted for downward ejection; HIPS, PC, etc. are targeted to be passed.
