Features & benefits

The FOCUS is an optical belt sorting machine specially developed for sorting products with miscellaneous defects. Discolorations, shape deviations and undesirable constituents are detected in the product flow and removed with high precision. The use of FOCUS not only leads to a higher quality of your end product, but also to lower and more predictable production costs.
​The FOCUS detects your product on the fast rotating product reading belt using innovative detection techniques. Your product is identified and accurately removed. You are immediately informed of the decisions taken by the FOCUS based on the criteria you have entered. The modular construction of the FOCUS makes it possible to select from the perfect combination of camera, light and other techniques for the best sorting results.
