Opti-Sort optical sorting unit

Perfect solution for precise lightweight material processing

Opti-Sort is an integrated optical sorting unit. It has a patented design especially suitable for processing lightweight materials, such as flexible plastic packaging or single sheets of paper.

Controlling the trajectory of those types of materials inside the ejection hood remains a challenge for the industry. Opti-Sort is the perfect solution. It allows precise material handling at a high speed of up to 6,5m/s on a conveyor. This is specifically designed to this velocity without having balance issues.

The newly patented ejection hood of the Opti-Sort integrated optical sorting unit uses a curved design. This leads to a perfect control of the trajectory of lightweight materials.

Opti-Sort is an integrated solution. It combines the synergic effects of the Bollegraaf Speed conveyor, the laminar air flow displacement unit together with the newly patented ejection hood. That is based on a curved design eliminating back pressure. It smoothly guides the materials by using air flows along the outline of the wall. This is key for maximizing the separation and recovery of light weight packaging, such as plastic foils and paper sheet.

Opti-Sort optical sorting unit

Opti-Sort is one integrated optical sorting unit that is delivered, assembled and commissioned in one go. This allows you to minimize your installation time. It also guarantees a maximized performance of your optical unit. Flexibility and modularity are central in this integrated design. It leads to universal scanner support and related options.

Other special features of the Opti-Sort integrated optical sorting unit include:

Preferred ejection valve configuration

Top/Bottom vs Bottom/Bottom based on specific customer conditions and requirements

Unique separation performance

Astonishing results at speed levels to up to 6,5 m/s

Newly patented ejection hood

Curved design allows perfect control of the trajectory of lightweight materials
