Krones Sekamat

Detecting and rejecting bottle types

Coping with bottle diversity in returnables lines

The Sekamat sorter is installed directly at the conveyor and differentiates the containers passing by according to their type-specific criteria. The containers are inspected contact-free so that they will not be worn. Depending on the selected program, a CCD camera records specific characteristics like height, colour, contour, neckfinish, or cap. This multiltalented system detects full containers or differentiates glass and PET without any problems.
And, because this all is performed in a flow, the Sekamat can reach outputs of up to 72,000 containers an hour even with high-requirement sorting tasks!
