Central to Compac's avocado solutions is our state-of-the-art sorting technology. Your production requirements and capacity will determine whether single, dual or multi-lane sorting capabilities are right for your packhouse. What differentiates our sorting solutions is our innovative, industry-leading Spectrim, Inspectra2 and InVision avocados grading systems. Both systems reduce labor requirements and provide you with unparalleled sorting consistency and accuracy.
Compac's weighing and pack optimization software delivers unsurpassed accuracy by meeting pack specifications, reducing avocado giveaway and maximizing profits.
Our intelligent, easy-to-use software enables intuitive recognition of fruit types and will adjust grading accordingly.
Using Compac's advanced platform, avocados are sorted by the presence of surface blemishes. Avocados are then graded on minor to major defects including skin blemishes, insect damage, misshapen fruit, bruising and abrasions. Our systems can be configured to grade for differing levels of defects, providing maximum control when matching product grades to different markets.
Keep bad avocados out of a good box and reduce fruit giveaway with Compac's Inspectra2 - a non-invasive solution for internal defect grading. NIR is an ideal solution for measuring dry matter and ripeness of avocados.

Reduce your labor requirements with our automated Carton Handling Systems (CHS).
The CHS tracks cartons from the sorter and distributes them to different destinations within the packhouse for palletizing and shipping. These intelligent systems can manage multiple boxes, products and destinations simultaneously. CHS integrates with the Compac Pack Printing system to automate carton labelling and data transfer to your ERP system for traceability, compliance and stock control.
Compac's pallet handling solutions improve efficiency. Our robotics ensure efficient and safe transportation of pallets around the packhouse, especially for high volume operations.
Compac's data and integration solutions track and record all avocados as they cross the sorter and move through the packhouse. This information can then be shared with other packhouse systems such as ERP, traceability systems and carton printing applications. Reports on the performance of your operation can be generated, allowing you to feed this information back into your operation, making changes to optimize efficiency.
We also facilitate remote sampling of various grades and sizes of avocados for packhouse quality control.
