Key Technology introduces Manta™, a new state-of-the-art high volume, high performance sorter featuring a two-meter wide scan area that dramatically increases throughput within a space-saving footprint. Handling up to 27 metric tons (60,000 pounds) of processed vegetables or fruit per hour, Manta offers high resolution scanning to detect and remove the smallest defects and foreign material. In addition to processed vegetables and fruit, Manta is being developed for other industry applications.
Designed for exceptional versatility and superior sanitation, this innovative sorter increases production capacity while maximizing product quality and food safety. With the highest number of sensors and image processing modules of any sorter on the market, Manta maintains the high resolution of the finest narrow-belt sorters on its wider, higher capacity frame. Designed for flexibility, Key can configure Manta with up to eight top-mounted color or Vis/IR (visible infrared) cameras and up to two top-mounted FluoRaptor™ fluorescence-sensing lasers. Optional bottom-mounted sensors can be added to meet the specific needs of each application. Extreme modularity allows Manta to be easily reconfigured in the field, which enables processors to confidently select a camera/laser arrangement today knowing that the sorting system can grow if their needs change.
