So far, many fruit grading machines are complicated in structure, mainly used in large-scale fruit production line. The high cost and low sorting efficiency makes them unsuitable for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). What’s more, traditional fruit grading machines usually distribute fruits according to their weight, while fruits are more measured by size and texture in agricultural products bases. There remains enormous demand for low-cost and small-sized fruit sorter machines.

According to different fruit detection criteria, fruit sorting machine can select fruits depend on their size, weight, appearance and internal quality. Currently, weight and size sorting machine dominate the market. The sorting process is carried out with the help of manual work. But manual sorting is not efficient or accurate enough. Nowadays, many domestic and foreign researchers are committed to developing efficient automatic fruit sorter.

Fruit grading machine is applicable to spherical and oval fruits and vegetables selection. Workers put raw materials trough a vertical feed port. Under gravity force, they spread out on the rolling bar in sequence. Because rolling bar is connected with the non-metal track, they keep moving forward in horizontal direction and rotating at the same time. The raw materials thus rotate right along and move to the next procedure. During their movement, there are staffs picking out unqualified fruits. This is how they ensure fruits quality.
