Vibrations help robots sort plastic
Nomi4s has introduced a new development project,
where the main objective is to develop and demonstrate
a technical concept with automated technologies and
methods. The concept will, with minimal human effort,
help identify and sort recyclable resources from large
fractions of waste.
The project can be divided into two main processes:
The first stage is the pre-sorting, where SKAKO’s finger
screen helps separating the waste bales into smaller
fractions, thus the metal, glass and plastic can be sorted
by the vibrating scalper, that transports and separates
the fractions under a magnetic belt.
The second stage is sorting the mixed plastic types.
SKAKO’s Storage Feeder and Vibration Conveyor
distribute the different types of plastic which help the
infrared NIR sensor to scan the plastic and send the
information to the robotic arms for pick up. The most
common plastic types PP, PE and PET.
FINGER SCREEN S2U180/0320, CONVEYORS
2 X CCU140/250 AND FEEDER FVR1120/2000
Material: Plastic waste, aluminium cans &
Capacity: 1000 t/h – 100 m3/h
The waste recycling plant was developed in collaboration with our customers Wamatech A/S and Nomi4s A/S. The whole plant is automatically driven and only needs one man for controlling.
