AUTOSORT in action

As the most flexible sorting system within TOMRA Sorting Recycling’s product family, the AUTOSORT combines detection of color and enhanced material information resulting in a multifunctional system that optimizes effectiveness across a wide range applications.

X-TRACT, TOMRA Sorting's metal recovery system

Using the X-ray transmission technology, TOMRA Sorting´s X-TRACT identifies contents in the sorting material independent of their color and pollution. With X-ray sorting technology, the X-TRACT can separate materials based on their atomic density and is so able to separate material concentrates into different material types.

AUTOSORT FLAKE

Heralding a new era of high-precision sorting, the AUTOSORT FLAKE combines color detection and enhanced material information to maximize the recovery of high-quality recycled products which discerning markets now demand.

Material sorting

Choosing TOMRA sorting equipment has repeatedly proven to be a profitable decision for their customers. Whether in the packaging, paper, municipal solid waste, or plastics businesses on the waste sorting side, or end-of-life vehicles, e-scrap or aluminum re-melters businesses on the metal sorting side, TOMRA Sorting´s optical scanners provide excellent results – and increase customer profitability.
