Earlier this year, Key Technology introduced VERYX® digital sorters for nuts and dried fruits to the market. This innovative new sorter is designed specifically to identify and remove even the most challenging foreign material (FM) and defects such as small, loose and embedded shell fragments, membrane material, insect damage, surface scratches, color-based defects, stems, rocks, glass and more. VERYX for nuts and dried fruits achieves unmatched color grading and shell, FM and defect removal while at the same time its extreme accuracy virtually eliminates false rejects.

Ideal for sorting walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachios, peanuts, pecans, cashews and dried fruit such as raisins, prunes, cranberries, apricots, figs, dates and more, VERYX guarantees that final product specifications are maintained while maximizing yields. This new level of sorting efficiency allows nut and dried fruit processors to make the grade with fewer passes through the sorter, increasing productivity and reducing product breakage.

VERYX is the only nut and dried fruit sorter that can be configured with front- and rear-mounted laser sensors and cameras to achieve all-sided surface inspection. It is also the only sorter with multi-sensor Pixel Fusion™, which combines pixel-level input from multiple cameras and laser sensors to more clearly differentiate good product, defects and FM. With Pixel Fusion, VERYX consistently removes the most difficult-to-detect FM and defects without ‘false positives.’

Key manufactures VERYX sorters in both the U.S. and Europe and supports customers worldwide through its global sales and service network.
