The most advanced tomato sorting system capable of analyzing the entire surface of the tomato

MARKET INCREASINGLY DIVERSIFIED IN VARIETIES AND SIZES

The tomato is on the list of the most consumed vegetables in the world. The appearance of new varieties and sizes requires companies to be increasingly versatile and careful in classifying their products. In addition, its export from the producing countries implies long value chains with different actors that makes quality control difficult.

The market and consumers continue to be very demanding in terms of the suitability of the products that reach supermarkets. There are more and more varieties to choose from, with elongated tomatoes being a trend, which are tastier than round ones.

For all this, investing in state-of-the-art technology that automates quality processes is already a requirement to win over the consumer and stand out from the competition.

MULTISCAN TECHNOLOGIES IN THE CHERRY TOMATO SECTOR

Multiscan Technologies has a long history in the tomato sector and knows in detail the high quality requirements applied to its entire value chain.

Thanks to our knowledge of the sector and our experience with large cherry tomato producers worldwide, we have identified a new need to detect defects at the ends of the product.

Cherry tomato sorting equipment on the market works very well with round products, but they are not efficient when it comes to detecting defects in the areas of the blossom and stem ends, especially if they are elongated varieties.

This is a problem for the producers of these new varieties, which are increasingly common, especially in countries such as Canada or Morocco. Our clients needed to invest in manual selection to ensure the quality of their tomatoes and detect serious defects such as apical necrosis, tuta or thrips

MULTISCAN GRADING SYSTEM: THE MOST COMPLETE TOMATO GRADING ON THE MARKET

Multiscan Grading System (MGS) is a high capacity system with the latest electronic sorting technology specially designed for the classification of cherry tomatoes, round or elongated, by quality, colour, size and shape. It is part of a complete processing solution from product input to packaging.

In this edition of Fruit Attraction we are going to present a new version of this platform, more flexible and with the latest technology for cherry tomato sorting, including the TOTAL VISION vision system, very powerful for apical problems of the product.

A model that adapts to the specific needs of our clients

At Multiscan we know that the adaptability of our equipment to customer facilities is a differential value. The new MGS model allows you to choose the number of inspection routes and the number of exits according to the needs of the process, which allows producers greater flexibility when designing their quality processes.

High efficiency in quality sorting with TOTAL VISION technology

Multiscan’s TOTAL VISION technology combines innovative vision and transport systems on individual rollers that allow optimal sorting with high capacity, efficiency and versatility. What makes this technology different are its side cameras, which allow defects to be identified in the most difficult areas to analyze, such as the blossom and stem ends in elongated product varieties.

Deformed cherry tomatoes, cracked, with thrips or tuta are some of the defects detected with the TOTAL VISION technology of the MGS

PRODUCTION AND CONNECTIVITY REPORTS

All Multiscan equipment integrates a software platform that provides the customer with an intuitive and easy-to-use user interface, with the possibility of remote technical assistance. Apart from these functionalities, it also allows communication with other elements of the line and SCADA and incorporates supervised machine learning algorithms, which allows the training of the solution in the detection of certain specific defects.

In addition, the generation of reports provides very useful information for our customers to control production and make decisions to improve it.
