“The PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED is used where other sorting systems have difficulties”

SORTCO GmbH & Co. KG is a specialist for optical and mechanical sorting of shape and color deviations in plastic pellets. In addition, the company offers dust removal and metal separation of plastic raw materials. Since March 2021, SORTCO has been using two PURITY SCANNER ADVANCED systems from SIKORA in its new, state-of-the-art sorting service center in Niederzissen/ Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany. With these, the pellets to be sorted are inspected 100 % optically and impurities from a size of 50 µm are automatically sorted out.

Tension measurement faster than ever before: Advanced stand-alone gauge head for quality control of optical fibers

The fast, lossless transfer of data over long distances via optical fiber cables is essential for our increasingly digital and connected society. The future demand for optical fiber cables is further growing due to the global establishment and expansion of 5G wireless standards, increasing intra-data traffic within data centers as well as data traffic between different data centers.

Inspection and sorting of plastic pellets as a guarantee for visually and functionally perfect products

Black specks and color deviations often lead to increased scrap rates in the production of plastic injection molded parts, but also in the manufacture of profiles, cables and pipes. The same applies to metal inclusions in the pellets, which leave traces in the end product and the processing machines and cause costs. As far as black specks are concerned, this type of material contamination is often caused by thermal overload, while metallic impurities are mostly due to damage and wear of screw, barrel and pelletizing unit during the compounding process.
