TOMRA publishes e-book on potential of connected machines and cloud-based data storage
Connected machines and cloud-based data storage are transforming how businesses collect, access and analyze data. The recycling industry is at the advent of discovering the power of data reported by connected optical sorting equipment. This capability is ushering in a new era of data-driven process optimization suggests the new e-book, "Digitalization - Connect to Enhance Productivity in the Recycling Industry," from TOMRA Sorting Recycling.
Prior to Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), production data remained local to optical sorters, making it difficult to harvest and analyze. Now, through embedded sensors and cloud-based reporting, optical sorters are turned into data delivery machines to drive the strategic management process. Near real-time data gives insight into production gaps, allows companies to react faster to change and improves recycled product quality and throughput.
The free-to-download e-book examines that stored service reports, spare parts orders and product manuals improve machine maintenance efficiency. It also peers into the not-so-distant-future where leveraged production data, combined with advanced analytics, will result in the development of new sorting technologies and processes that will improve sorting efficiency and boost final product purity.

Single-Ram and II-Ram High-Capacity Balers
At Machinex, we've been designing sorting systems for over 35 years, so we know how essential it is for MRF operators to have a baler they can trust and not worry about its operational reliability. This is why we design and manufacture reliable single-ram and II-ram high-capacity balers to specifically help optimize their operations.
Watch the video of our expert who presents the main features of Machinex balers delivering these important benefits:
- Easy & accessible maintenance
- Reduced maintenance & bale handling costs
- Energy savings
- Optimal bale density
For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
