Optimum purity when sorting aluminium

W 2000 tomra xrt sorting units in field

Coupled with its market-leading X-Tract, Tomra Sorting Recycling launched its LIBS laser separation technology at Aluminium 2016 in Germany, at the end of November.

Sensor-based sorting technologies offer enhanced sorting functionality, sorting scrap metal into different grades, including 5xxx and 6xxx series alloys, and removing unwanted product.

The robustness of LIBS technology extends the options for the usage of scrap and secondary aluminum because it employs a dynamic laser and the full width of the belt, resulting in high throughput and optimal purity levels.

Such alloy-sorting techniques now make it possible to use the separated secondary material, unlocking even more intrinsic value from what was once a ‘lost’ resource. Substantial energy savings reduce processing costs and increase profit margins.
