Spyder® Digital Laser Sorter

Uncompromised Sorting

The Spyder Digital Laser Sorter offers you an uncompromised combined sorting experience for detection and ejection of foreign material, EVM and defects based on color, structure, shape and size differences.

Improve Product Quality

The Spyder is a 100% digital sorter. Data is digitized immediately upon inspection to eliminate any loss of information ensuring significantly higher ejection accuracy. False rejects are limited to an absolute minimum improving quality.

Improve Yield

The proprietary Chycane® chute feeds the product in a perfect monolayer with a consistent trajectory to the laser optics and ejection valves. This optimized product control maximizes sorting and ejection efficiency, increasing yield.
