Tomra Sorting Recycling has launched its Innosort Flake plastic waste sorting machine in Europe, billing it as “the future of plastics recycling”.
The compact-size machine combines a number of Tomra-developed technologies, including dual-sensor sorting, to offer an all-in-one solution for colour and polymer sorting.
The European launch, during the Plastics Recycling Show Europe 2019 in Amsterdam, followed the machine’s debut in China late last year and in Turkey & Eurasia in March.
Innosort Flake features Tomra’s patented Flying Beam technology, which offers continuous signal correction and has integrated light source through which customers can monitor and optimise the performance of their operations on a real time basis.
Equipped with cameras, NIR (near-infrared) sensors, and a 50cm chute the machine comes in three formats and can have a throughput of up to 4.5 tonnes per hour.
“We are here, first of all, to be present in the market. And of course, we want to launch this machine in Europe,” said Fabrizio Radice, VP, head of global sales and marketing recycling, Tomra, speaking to Plastics News Europe.
