Buhler Sortex opens its doors to fruit & vegetable processors03/20/2013 Throughout the first week of March, Bühler welcomed a group of leading fruit and vegetable freezers from Europe to their London manufacturing facility to showcase their SORTEX optical sorting technology and latest innovations for the fruit and vegetable sector. “Open events and product demonstrations are central to our customer support as they provide the opportunity not only for our customers to inspect our optical sorters in detail but also to trial their own produce using our innovative technology before making important purchasing decisions,” comment Pawel Zmudzki, Sales Manager at Bühler.
The particular focus was on the latest SORTEX E1D optical sorter, designed specifically to improve yield quality and reduces losses in challenging fruit and vegetable applications. Sorting demonstrations were run using a variety of demanding customer test produce to display the range of flexibility and adaptability of the SORTEX F&V range to individual sorting requirements.
The groups also visited the newly opened Customer Service Centre including the Applications Test Area and customer training rooms. The event concluded with a full factory tour of the state-of-the-art Bühler Sortex production facility.
Pawel concludes, “We are delighted with the feedback received from our customers following another successful event. Seeing our latest facilities strengthens our customers’ confidence in Bühler and builds our reputation. Customer events like these has helped to secure significant installations over the last twelve months and demonstrates our commitment to local customer support and operator training.”
