SORTCO is the specialist for optical sorting of plastic granulate.

By using innovative optoelectronic sorting systems, each individual granule is subjected to a 100% inspection by high-speed cameras and defective granules are shot out of the material flow with a targeted compressed air pulse.


Inspection and De-dusting

The first step in the cleaning process involves inspecting, de-dusting and screening the source material.

Optical Sorting

We are continuously expanding our sorting lines in order to meet our customers’ requirements.

Metal Separation

In this step, metallic and non-metallic defects are detected and reliably removed.

Contract-sorting for Plastics - Purity down to the Smallest Detail

Today’s engineering plastics have to meet high quality standards, particularly in the automotive, aerospace, medical technology and information technology industries. Even the tiniest impurities can make pellets unsuitable for applications in these sectors. Even a meticulous processing chain cannot always prevent contamination. Impurities can be baked in during the production, or during packaging or transport, or because of improper storage.

The Solution? Optical Sorting of the Plastic Pellets.

As your professional service provider, SORTCO GmbH & Co. KG is here to assist you with the inspection, de-dusting, sorting and metal-separating of plastic pellets and pelletised raw materials.

We offer optical sorting with defect recognition from 60 μm for large and small batches and ensure nearly 100 % pure pellets with a very low reject rate.

And how do we do this?


Optical Sorting of Plastics
