TOMRA Food presented SmartGrade on its Spectrim platform. This new system provides the packhouse with absolute control of grading with such precision that it is able to pack fruit by matching accurately the individual needs of customers. It detects each type of defect and maintains consistent grading performance even if the quality of products is different. 

Kurt Bagby, Research and Grading Team Lead, R&D at TOMRA Fresh Food, explains that the advantage is that you can look for various things on each pass, rather than bundling them together. This is extremely useful when defects occur on top of each other or together. It enables it to get very precise in your grading.

The numerous passes targeted on individual defects means that SmartGrade keeps a consistent grading performance when there are variations in batches of fruit.

Another advantage is that now, with SmartGrade, there are fewer people needed on the line for manual grading due to its capacity to keep high accuracy with high variability in incoming fruit batches. 

It performs equally well on all kinds of produce: pip fruit, stone fruit (including cherries and avocados), citrus, kiwis, potatoes, onions, etc. 

Prima Frutta, US-based packer, is an evidence of how SmartGrade’s grading accuracy reached an entirely new level, delivering great improvements in efficiency and profitability with all commodity types.

The company is known for its adoption of cutting-edge technology and has earned a reputation for growing and selling top quality cherries and apples.

Tim Sambado, owner of Prima Frutta commented that this season they tested the new SmartGrade software on their new InVision2 cherry grading line. It allowed them to grade consistently and with accuracy, eliminating such defects as open sutures and subtle browning from wind scarring. It clearly differentiates between cosmetic surface blemishes and defects with the potential to provoke later spoilage of the fruit.
