Key said it can also tailor each VERYX with the necessary sensors, lighting, software and other equipment for different uses, including for processors of both canned and frozen vegetables. It is able to detect color, size, shape and structural properties of every object, while removing insects, animal parts, paperboard, wood, rocks, and other foreign matter. VERYX comes in different sizes to satisfy different production capacity requirements.
VERYX uses Key’s Information Analytics software, which the company says allows users to analyze and share big data across their enterprise via an OPCUA-compliant infrastructure at the same time they sort. Data about the sort process and about each and every object flowing through the sorter, whether the data is used to make sort decisions or not, is available to reveal patterns, trends and associations. Key says this data can help a processor better manage incoming raw materials and optimize processes upstream and downstream of the sorter to achieve the next level in operational efficiency.
