Compac launches UltraView, enhancing the market-leading Spectrim grading platform

22 październik 2019
UltraView is a new inspection module that integrates with the Compac Spectrim cabinet to provide ultimate detection of defects located in the critical stem bowl and tip areas of the fruit – defects that can be difficult to detect due to their shape and location.

The UltraView module contains a dedicated set of high-resolution multi-spectral (color and infrared) cameras and LED lights which are located ideally close to the fruit, parallel to its direction of travel.
In this unique position the UltraView cameras generate superior quality images for accurate inspection of the fruit’s stem bowl and tip regions. The module’s location on the sizer, directly after the Spectrim cabinet, means that the fruit on the carrier is ideally oriented for presentation to the UltraView sensors.

UltraView was field validated in trials run through full pack seasons at sites in the USA and New Zealand. UltraView reduces the need for manual checking of difficult defects which causes line slowdowns.
This results in improved line efficiency and lower packhouse labor requirements, as well as increasing opportunities to adopt tray-filling automation.

Compac’s Spectrim optical sorting platform and Inspectra² near-infrared sorting platform recently won the PwC Commercial Impact Award at the 2019 KiwiNet Awards for the development of worldleading fruit grading and sorting technologies – public recognition of Compac’s commitment to groundbreaking research and development, which has also led to UltraView.
