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.

TOMRA introduces laser object detection system that identifies black objects and glass

When combined with TOMRA's AUTOSORT and FINDER products, the new LOD system detects items such as black plastic and rubber, glass, and other waste items that near infrared technology cannot identify.

TOMRA Sorting introduces its new Laser Object Detection (LOD) system that, when used in combination with AUTOSORT and FINDER, boosts the circuit's sorting capabilities, allowing waste and scrap recycling operations to reach final product purity levels unique to the market and never before possible. Featuring TOMRA laser technology that sorts based on the feed material's spectral and spatial characteristics, the new LOD detects material that near infrared technology (NIR) is incapable of identifying.
