New UniSort Film EVO 5.0 designed for 2D sorting

Steinert's latest technology takes on lightweight material including plastic film and bags, paper and fibre with increased efficiency

NIR sorter for films, paper and fibres with innovative belt cover

The new Steinert UniSort Film EVO 5.0 offers an extensively redesigned stabilisation system with intelligent airflow for sorting lightweight 2D objects, as well as maintenance enhancements for operational reliability. 

According to Steinert, a whole host of detail improvements in maintenance have been adopted from the UniSort PR EVO 5.0 sister model, such as dynamic calibration and automatic white balance. 

This complete solution for 2D recyclables sorting also offers new belt coverage, making it easier to access machines with minimum downtime. Similar to the mechanics of a garage door, these machines can now be easily folded. Service hatches and ventilation plates are easy to reach and clean from maintenance access points. This ensures a high level of sorting purity in the long term, while optimizing personnel management.

HSI technology augmented by mechanics developed for 2D objects

According to Steinert, a targeted airflow right at the beginning of the sorting process - before the material to be sorted reaches the conveyor belt - ensures an even, overlap-free distribution of objects over the complete belt width. Synchronizing the flow with the belt speed ensures a stable position on the belt, thereby enabling material to be detected and sorted reliably via the high-resolution hyperspectral imaging (HSI) technology. A specially developed sealing airflow makes sure the 2D objects are held in an ideal position and sorted reliably, even after leaving the belt. This unique design produces a circular airflow that reduces emissions while ensuring resilience.

The EVO 5.0 model generation is synonymous with consistently advanced development focusing on high availability and operational reliability. This is also true of the UniSort Film EVO 5.0, and enhances performance long-term in daily operation.

Conserving resources together

The path towards a circular economy spanning the globe is not an easy one. From the responsible extraction of primary raw materials and political restrictions through to technological hurdles, gigantic obstacles need to be overcome. STEINERT is keen to assist its customers in this mission as a friend and know-how partner,equipping them with the cutting-edge technologies they need to stay ahead. Together we can push back the boundaries of what is feasible to produce ever purer secondary raw materials.
