The automatic optical sorting machine is used to sort and grade round-shaped fruits and vegetables according to the shape, color and size. It can sort fruits and vegetables, eg. potato, tomato, apple, orange, cherry, etc. quickly and effectively, offering significant savings in labor time. In addition, the sorting tolerance can be adjusted with respect to the shape, color and size of desired fruit or vegetable, and their defects. A future development of the machine benefits from internal defect detection, eg. insect infestation, using non-destructive IR imaging.
