Multiscan S80 TOMATO Solution

ANTONIO GONZÁLEZR + D + I Engineer La Caña Group

In the ongoing deal with Multiscan, we had all the trust in their capability to do an upgrade on their existing machine on replacing the camera box for a new design with side cameras. This way the machine would be able to sort out tomatoes with blossom end rot, that was hard to see before, being at the tip of the grape tomatoes. Once successfully accomplished, it was for us the reason to order two more of the MGS color sorters for our 2 new expansions.
