Nimbus by TOMRA



The new generation of free-fall sorting solutions combines the efficiency of laser detection together with the camera to sort discolorations and shape of products in free-fall. In addition to these conventional sorting methods, the Nimbus is able to sort based on biological characteristics, such as chlorophyll (Fluo™), mycotoxins (Detox™), water (SWIR), and can be equipped with a hyperspectral camera to identify the material’s unique fingerprint. The ejection system uses an optimal pitch for enhanced removal of defects. The Nimbus can be equipped with front sorting or a Rear Ejection System (RES) for greater flexibility, lower false reject and improved yield.
