Artificial Intelligence for Paper Sorting

Technology provider Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has expanded the Max-AI AQC (Autonomous Quality Control) product line with the release of the AQC-2 for paper sorting applications.

The Max-AI technology employs artificial intelligence (AI) to make material identification and selection decisions. According to the information, AQC-2 features two robotic screening units and is able to sort on belt widths up to 72” (1.800 millimeters).

The new capabilities coincide with the industry’s demand for technology to create material purity. “The AQC-2 sorts at speeds superior to manual sorting while recovering cardboard, containers and plastic film and removing contamination to create a clean new product,” BHS gave account. The novelty would complement BHS’ Tri-Disc technology and NRT optical sorters to fully automate the quality control process for paper and containers. “The level of automation possible with Max-AI technology will significantly lower operating costs – especially while running multiple shifts – while adding production and quality capabilities that surpass those of manual sorting,” the provider underlined.
