November 7, 2017 – Key Technology introduces the VERYX® family of digital sorters for green beans. These chute- and belt-fed sorters identify and remove extraneous vegetable matter (EVM), including stalks, calyx, stems and several other types of unwanted vegetable materials often found with harvested green beans, as well as beans with blemishes and foreign material (FM) such as sticks, wood, glass and more. With optional three-way sorting, VERYX separates beans for rework while rejecting waste product and FM and passing good beans. Through improved sort accuracy, VERYX increases the removal of EVM, FM and defects to enhance product quality while virtually eliminating false rejects to maximize yield.
As part of expanding its production facilities, Bergmann Spritzguß und Formenbau GmbH & Co. KG, which is based in Telgte-Westbevern, Germany, decided on a radical approach and equipped its entire production facility with a brand new material supply system comprising a central drying system, dosing systems and conveyors as well as a frequency-controlled conveyor control unit.
