In order to help food processors and packers boost profitability and efficiency through information gathered by sorting machines, TOMRA Food has published a new eBook. Titled ‘When Sorters Become Data Generating Machines’, the easy-to-read, 21-page booklet explains how businesses can benefit with the TOMRA Insight data platform.

According to the eBook, turning TOMRA’s sorters into connected devices is easy, the only things needed are wiring and stable internet connection. The data solution’s software stores and processes the data obtained from sorters and presents this in a dashboard-style monitoring and reporting system in near real-time. This is compatible with SCADA systems, however, while SCADA controls the process and visualizes related alarms, performance, and control parameters, the digital sorting dashboard enables analytics based on larger data sets.

Two different types of data can be generated by sorters. Data in Motion, a powerful reporting and decision-making tool, foresees data originating from the sorting activity (alarms, sorting throughput, statistics). Data at Rest includes non-real-time information about machines (service reports, spare parts history, manuals). 

The eBook differentiates 4 categories of process data. Material composition statistics visualize what the machine sees, providing a good view of the products or material quality in the infeed stream. Material distribution statistics show the distribution of material on the machine over time, controlling if machines and processes are running optimally. Sorting statistics visualize the sorting fractions, serving for quality management and helping to match product characteristics to clients’ requirements. Machine health data offers information about the machine’s operational condition and status, preventing unnecessary downtime.

This information is accessible and actionable via TOMRA Insight, the cloud-based data platform available as a subscription-based service to users of TOMRA machines. The eBook explains how digital sorting data gathered by TOMRA Insight is secure, and the way sorting can be transformed from an operational process into an important strategic management tool.
