Reliable sorting of refuse

March 2006

The Villach-based company CTR developed the SPECTROSORT system specifically to meet the requirements of the recycling sector. The system is capable of detecting, classifying and sorting household, office and industrial refuse reliably in a matter of seconds. The CTR system is based on the principle of spectral imaging, where classification is carried out by sensor systems using the near infrared and visible spectra. The imaging components such as the camera, frame grabbers, lenses and associated cables were sourced primarily from STEMMER IMAGING.
