Caption from left to right: Maurice Moynihan (Director Strategic Marketing & Business Development at TOMRA Sorting Food, Richard Weiss (Managing Director Purchasing & Production at GRIMME), Sebastian Talg (Managing Director Sales at GRIMME) & Thomas Molnar (Global Sales and Marketing Director at TOMRA Sorting Food)GRIMME Group announces that it has joined forces with TOMRA, a global leader in food sorting solutions. The partnership will result in the TOMRA FPS (Field Potato Sorter) being integrated into the RH Combi to create the GRIMME PowerCombi solution. The Field Potato Sorter, FPS, is a sensor based food sorting machine for unwashed potatoes, removing soil clods, stones and foreign material. Through the new partnership, GRIMME will distribute the TOMRA FPS so customers can purchase and deploy a single, integrated grading and sorting solution, including post-sale support. With the newly launched PowerCombi, GRIMME uses the combination of highly efficient mechanical separation mechanisms and electronic sorting to not only increase separation accuracy of up to 98 percent, but also to increase capacity up to 100 tonnes per hour, a 25 percent improvement on previous systems. As a result, fewer employees are required to check for waste products and therefore labor costs are considerably reduced. More
