Key Technology has introduced its VERYX® belt-fed digital sorters. Like the chute-fed VERYX sorters introduced in 2015, the new belt-fed VERYX sorters set new standards of performance. With a highly innovative mechanical architecture, sustainable all-sided surface inspection, multi-sensor Pixel Fusion™, the highest resolution cameras and laser sensors available on a digital sorter and extreme ease-of-use, VERYX maximizes foreign material (FM) and defect detection and removal while virtually eliminating false rejects. VERYX improves product quality, increases yields and reduces the need for labor.

To address a wide variety of food products and production capacities, the VERYX family will grow to include chute-fed sorter configurations in two widths and belt-fed sorters in four widths. With a highly customizable modular design, Key tailors each system specifically around the product characteristics and production objectives of each processor with the ideal sensors, sensor positions, lighting, separation/ejection system, product handling, software and more. The system can easily be upgraded in the field with more or different cameras, lasers, BioPrint® hyperspectral sensors and other technologies, as customer requirements evolve over time.

For food processors requiring all-sided surface inspection, Key can arrange the sensors to achieve full view of each object in the product stream with no blind spots. On belt-fed systems, the VERYX bottom cameras are positioned away from product splatter to ensure lower sensor windows are not obstructed by buildup over time. Eliminating this previously common performance degradation keeps bottom cameras operating at peak performance and makes VERYX the first sorter to deliver 100 percent surface inspection that is sustained throughout the production cycle.

Designed to minimize sanitation requirements and simplify maintenance, VERYX reduces downtime and the customer’s total cost of ownership.
