The NEXUS is an optical sorter especially developed to sort products with various optical deficiencies. Discoloration, deformation and foreign objects are detected and accurately removed from the product flow. The NEXUS can be used for candy and sweets, dried or frozen potato, vegetable and fruit products. Use of the NEXUS will lead to quality improvement of your final product, but also to lower and more predictable production costs.
​The NEXUS is available in two models with a scan width of 1000 or 1200mm.

Field of Applications

The NEXUS is an optical sorter especially developed to sort products with various optical de ciencies. At the product flow discoloration, deformation and foreign objects are detected and removed accurately. The NEXUS can be used for confectionary, dried or frozen potato, vegetable or fruit product.

Features & benefits

The NEXUS is an optical sorting machine specially developed for sorting products with miscellaneous optical defects. Discolorations, shape deviations and undesirable constituents are detected in the product flow and removed with high precision. The use of NEXUS not only leads to a higher quality of your end product, but also to lower and more predictable production costs.
The NEXUS has an innovative, controlled product feed, which is able to adapt to the size of your product. A feed belt ensures that the products reach the inspection and ejection area at the same speed. This controlled product supply and internal resorting stream increase the certainty with which good and bad products are detected and ejected. You see this reflected in the quality of your good product and the optimal good-to-bad ratio.
​The modular construction of the NEXUS makes it possible to select from the perfect combination of camera, light and other techniques for the best sorting results.
