Tomra AutoSort CyBot

This new technology from Tomra Sorting Recycling, based in Germany, combines “deep learning” artificial intelligence (AI) with a vacuum-equipped robot picking arm. It features:

  • a new generation AutoSort scanner working in combination with an electromagnetic sensor and a robot arm
  • as many as 70 picks per minute based on the number and type of fractions sorted
  • the AutoSort system, which includes a broad range of sensors and uses data to classify objects
  • Tomra’s Sharp Eye technology, which is designed to enhance sorting sharpness and improve the separation of difficult-to-target fractions while also saving energy

Bunting High Intensity Separation Conveyor

Bunting, Newton, Kansas, says its High Intensity Separation Conveyor (HISC) helps create high-purity copper scrap by achieving “maximum separation of stainless steel and ferrous dirt” in shredded, insulated copper wire (ICW) cleaning applications. The HISC:

  • is suitable for wire prechopping purification and postchopping purification in ICW separation applications
  • helps to reduce wear and tear on chopper knives by removing stainless steel and ferrous dirt, resulting in a higher throughput and less knife maintenance and downtime
  • is suitable for other applications requiring high-intensity magnetic separation, including medical stainless steel separation, circuit board recycling and purification of granulated plastics
