Technological advance for your sorting tasks for more than 20 years

At OptoSort® we offer customized solutions for complex sorting applications.

Don't waste your profit!

Since 1992, OptoSort® has been your experienced partner for the construction and worldwide marketing of opto-electronic, sensor-based sorting systems for bulk materials and a variety of speciality applications in international mining. Our machines are in use around the world in sometimes-harsh climatic and industrial conditions and demonstrate a high level of resilience with constant operational reliability.

Although we are among the pioneers of sensor-based sorting technology and our drive for innovation leads to a continuous refinement of technology, it is our advisory activities that make us an indispensable confidant. Personal care from our technically accomplished and experienced staff convinces with competence, expertise and solution finding – even with remote maintenance.

As a smaller, customer-oriented company, we can flexibly and above all quickly fix problems, adjust systems via remote maintenance and always offer the latest technology.

Your advantages with sorting systems from OptoSort®

More earnings, higher productivity and better product quality are tangible benefits from the use of an OptoSort machine. Significant savings can be demonstrated with energy and water consumption as well as with costs for maintenance, transport and operation. Also less "good material" is lost due to the careful sorting. Using hyperspectral imaging, materials that do not have any visible differences in colouring can also be sorted using their chemical fingerprint. This innovative technology provides for a reliable separation of identically looking materials, ores or fuels.

Applications for sorting:

  • industrial minerals such as lime rock, talc, calcite
  • rock salt, quartz, fluorite, magnesite
  • precious metals such as gold- or platinum ores
  • metal ores such as copper, nickel, zinc, wolfram
  • fuels such as coal
  • slags from stainless steel, copper or ferrochrome
  • secondary materials

Sorting, an indispensable instrument for the economy

Conventional tailings still contain large amounts of valuable raw materials that can be efficiently recovered by using OptoSort® sorting systems. If the majority of waste rock is sorted out after primary crushing,  or even underground, the cost of transport and beneficiation can be reduced.

Sorting pays off at any rate!
