The demand for the highest quality seeds, grains and other raw materials for food production is constantly increasing to sustainably feed a growing world population and to safeguard human health. At the same time, reducing postharvest losses is a key measure with enormous potential.


Food safety, supply security, and high quality are always on top of the agenda for Cimbria and its customers, which reflects in a high demand for advanced and user-friendly optical sorters.


To meet these demands Cimbria’s optical sorting machines, ranging from visible, UV to NIR/Ingas vision systems, are becoming more and more sophisticated and combine different types of innovative technologies. The use of highly specialized technology allows an immediate advantage in both quality and operating costs.


The recently launched SEA.IQ combines a multispectral vision system, to detect and reject foreign bodies and contaminations having either non-conforming colors or shapes with extreme precision and sorting speed.


Thanks to real-color sorting technology, the SEA.IQ sees better than the human eye and provides the best possible results in terms of purity and concentration of rejects. The all-new optical system integrates RGB, NIR, SWIR or UV. They work in multi-frequency to match multiple data collected during tens of thousands of scans per second.


The ability to sort several types of commodities in the same machine is another key advantage in Cimbria’s optical sorters. It is not unusual for customers to handle grains, beans, and rice in the same plant, which makes flexible machinery highly desirable.


In a world that focuses on research to guarantee the necessary quantities of food for humanity, Cimbria supports not only the enhancing of food commodities. Our commitment is also to guarantee healthy and excellent quality food for future generations, with a constant premium quality in the sorted products.


With more than 75 years of expertise, Cimbria has a leading position in top-range solutions for processing, handling and storage and a strong and powerful setup to realize the ambitious and complex development of products and turnkey projects. A solid and extensive network is a two-way street supporting customers in identifying the best solutions for them and offering valuable feedback to Cimbria in their product development.
