Unique, high-performance optical sorter

Unique, high-performance optical sorter

      Sortop Carrots



Your advantages:

  • Worldwide unique, intelligent software
  • Highly precise calibration (diameter, length and weight)
  • Up to 16 outputs, customized solutions
  • 360 ° HD analysis, unsurpassed sorting quality
  • Maximum profitability and efficiency

Intelligent software - acts as a human being

The principle is based on artificial intelligence, which enables the subjective evaluation of the quality, shape and appearance of each carrot and thereby replicates the human appreciation. Combined with other measurable criteria (green collar area, white tip length, stem length), this setting allows the fine-tuning of the sorting accuracy.

Feeding system - highly increased hourly sorting capacity

A simple and ingenious rotating system aligns carrots of all sizes, smoothly and almost without any duplicates.
The sorting capacity is at 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in) carrots per second. The weight of 1.80 m (5 ft 11 in) carrots per second extrapolated to one hour results in the hourly sorting capacity.

Optical system - highly precise 360° analysis

Thanks to a mirror system and a very powerful all-round lighting that eliminates shadows, every vegetable is subjected to a perfect 360° analysis. The optical system generates 3 immaculate high-resolution images of each carrot. These can be displayed immediately on the computer screen to check the error detection.


  • High-resolution color and infrared camera, error detection from 0.16 mm2
  • Calibration accuracy at 1 mm, weight estimate at 1 g
  • Visualization of images with display of error detection
  • Accepts all shapes of carrots, calibrates sizes from 10 to 80 mm, length up to 500 mm

5 quality levels

The software allows an easy setting of 5 quality levels (plus waste). The volume and value of the product sold is increased and waste is reduced to a minimum. Thanks to the accuracy of the setting and the unique sorting consistency of the software, a significantly higher yield per batch is achieved.

Ejection - gently & exactly

A nozzle system blows the carrots towards the assigned outputs with extreme precision. The fall is cushioned by soft materials that guarantee a smooth landing.

Up to 16 outputs

There are 4 to 16 parameterizable outputs available. The products of each exit are passed onto individual conveyor belts. The sorting criteria can easily be adapted to the specific needs of each customer.
