Xcalibur Demo Days becomes: “Demo Month”!
During the period of 16 October to 6 November 2017 OptiServe has invited all its customers and prospects to come to their demo room in Maarheeze for a demonstration on Xcalibur, the most innovative optical sorting machine with its extraordinary sorting results. Food processing companies from all across the world where able to see the sorting results of their product having regard to the provisions of there own problems and personal desires. During these demo days all innovative features of this machine where explained with a great passion. OptiServe has received many attention and visits in a short period and that is why the Demo Days period was enlarged with another two weeks, so basically it became a “Demo Month”!
"With great certainty Xcalibur removes a scanned defect, while there is hardly good product located between the bad. There is no better sort than this"
“OptiServe has a good and motivated team containing a big knowledge about the sorting technique. They are standing behind their opinion and product!”
“They have thought about everything. They even solved problems which we unconsciously have accepted for a long time as being a part of the optical sorting process…”
… and this comes from the fact that OptiServe has much experience with several brands. They where always able to see improvements in every brand. And so this knowledge just came to OptiServe, because of their experience with used machines.
- Patented “intelligent puffing”
- Increase of capacity by higher speed
- In-line length measuring
- Sorting on length and size
- Reverse sorting (rejection by blowing on good objects, instead of the bad)
- Stability of the vision system
- Availability and feedback of data (OPC-UA)
- Sustainability and air consumption
- Hygiene and ease of maintenance
Xcalibur proves unique skills at leading European French fries producer!!
OptiServe is proud to announce that Xcalibur has proven its unique skills at a leading European French fries producer. The sorting results are exceptionally good! That is how OptiServe has definitely changed the standard in the world of sorting!
Two years ago OptiServe showed a preview of Xcalibur at Interpom Primeurs. This their new generation optical sorting machine. This year the first machine was successfully installed at a leading European French fries producer. The machine has outclassed all set objectives! This proves that the market is ready for Xcalibur. Last November OptiServe showed their new optical grader at Interpom Primeurs again. This one is also sold!
Mister Barthel, Kuijten, Morthorst, van Kasteren, Schulze en Schmidt are taking a toast on the new investment. Also Agrarfrost is waiting full of joy for their blockbuster, Xcalibur, to be installed at their factory in Oschersleben (Germany).
Particularly the sorting result of this machine is distinctive. So Xcalibur improves the yield of a production process. The patented “Intelligent Puffing” makes Xcalibur extraordinary special. The machine scans and creates realistic images of passing potato products. That is how the system exactly knows how the objects are positioned. Based on this information the defects will be rejected by small and ridiculous fast valves that have engaging times of 1 millisecond. The rejection is so accurate on the object that the influence on the “good” product is almost null.
Xcalibur has much more advantages. You can not miss one of them!
You are mostly welcome in Maarheeze, the Netherlands!
Worldwide exclusivity "Glide" for FAM nv!
OptiServe has agreed on a worldwide exclusivity for the sales of Glide with FAM nv from Belgium. FAM is European market leader for industrial cutting solutions voor de food market.
Of course you know Glide, the spot cutter of defect French fries! For about 4 years OptiServe is selling this cutting machine with success, because of it’s easy working and attractive “Return of Investment”. The world of processing equipment has also noticed that this machine has been accepted by processors of French fries all over the world.
Also FAM nv, established in Kontich Belgium, has received positive feedback from the market about Glide and sees this ‘spot cutter’ as an added value for their big product range of industrial cutting solutions. Therefore Guy Baeten, Strategic and Business Development Manager at FAM nv, is happy with this development:
“FAM nv manufactures cutting machines for cutting potatoes to slices, dices and French fries. Cutting potatoes is a very accurate and important part of the process to a perfect end product. FAM desires to help her customers with the best cutting solutions and Glide, with its entire frame of stainless steel, completes the product range of a specialist in potato cutting machines. Next to cutting defect French fries, Glide also has possibilities in other markets”.
Vincent Kuijten, Sales Manager at OptiServe BV is very excited:
“This is truly fantastic! It is a big compliment for us that companies like FAM see such abilities in our product, because the FAM machines are distinguishing their selves world wide as technical, most functional and finest solutions! This says something about where OptiServe stands with our innovative set of mind and practical performances, really wonderful!"
Besides Vincent says that OptiServe has been spending lots of energy into an even more professional machine: “Glide has been improved with better knives, a better transport of the product through the machine and also we have worked on the ‘Essential Health and Safety Requirements of the Machinery Directive’. And”, he adds, “because FAM sees our improvement and thereby is going to sell our Glide it gives us the possibility to focus on the optical sorting machines and particularly our biggest innovation ‘Xcalibur‘ . This does not mean that OptiServe is throwing this machine completely overboard, because when questions appear about Glide and Turn Key projects, customers can still ask me!”
