This machine scans the fruits with a spectrometer [Inventions]
posted August 14 2012 20:05.57 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Obviously, there is a good reason why fruit companies want to be able to measure the sugar content, the acidity and the weight of each and every fruit. Kubota's Senka Kobo is a fruit grader with a built-in fruit selector. Using light and a spectrograph it can measure the sugar content and acidity of tomatoes and apples, and the sugar content of fruits such as Asian pears, persimmons, kiwi, and loquats. Each operator can sort up to 2000 fruits per hour. Interesting...
