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.

Each operator can sort up to 2000 fruits per hour. Interesting...
