PAPAMOA, NEW ZEALAND - Coming off a successful 12 months with Spectrim, including the sale of over 500 lines, Compac Sorting wanted to give the industry a behind-the-scenes look at what it says is one of the top grading platforms in the world.

Rob Davidson, Mechatronics Team Lead, Spectrim“The great thing about the Spectrim platform is the customer only needs to purchase this one product and we can update that as time goes on and technologies advance,” Rob Davidson, Mechatronics Team Lead for Spectrim, said in the video.

The team explained that future investment cycles are smaller and quicker for that very reason, making it easier and a more affordable investment over time.

Davidson explained that the quality of this tech-savvy platform lies in the following few key points:

  • Lighting
  • Rotation of fruit
  • No shadows
  • No reflections

He added that the platform can pick up small and subtle defects, no mirrors involved, with even lighting and the ability to see all sides of the fruit.

Andrew McQueen, Product Manager, Compac Sorting“We released two new machine-learning algorithms, they are called Smart Scan and Smart Map,” Andrew McQueen, Product Manager for Compac Sorting, explained. “Respectively, they are a new method of defect-identification and defect-classification.”
