Compac's tomatoes infeed solutions ensure a gentle transition from bin or field box to the sorter. Options include:
We have a range of infeed solutions to cater for the differing needs of our customers. Manual and automatic options are available and have been designed specifically for tomatoes to ensure a gentle infeed onto the line.
Using a mesh-like conveyor, under-sized tomatoes are redirected before they reach the grader.
Compac's tomato treatment options include:
Compac's stainless steel air blades ensure tomatoes are dried and debris removed. Their unique design reduces noise pollution in the packhouse.
The washer gently and effectively removes spray residue, pests and other contaminants from tomatoes before sorting.
Central to Compac's tomato 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 and InVision tomato 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 and maximizes profits by meeting pack specifications and reducing tomato giveaway.
Our intelligent, easy-to-use learning software has the ability to define 16 different grades of color and intuitively recognises tomato types to adjust grading accordingly.
Using Compac's advanced platform, tomatoes are sorted by the presence of surface blemishes. Tomatoes are then graded on minor to major defects including skin blemishes, insect damage, misshapen produce, bruising and abrasions. Our platform can be configured to grade for differing levels of defects, providing maximum control when matching product grades to different markets.
Compac's packing solutions have been designed with tomatoes in mind, ensuring a particularly gentle transition and handling. We have many tomatoes packing solutions to meet the different needs of our customers including:
Compac's automatic box filling machine has weighing options at the outlet of the sizer to fill boxes with a specific volume of tomatoes.
Compac's manual or semi-auto bagging systems use unique optimizers to select the optimal combination of produce across the sorter, ensuring accurate bag weights are achieved, with the minimum possible giveaway.
Compac's technology allows punnet, tote and clam-shell filling by both count and weight to ensure the optimal quantity of tomatoes in the punnet.
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 tomatoes 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 tomatoes for packhouse quality control.
