SORTER originated in Radom, as the first and only manufacturer in Poland, Central and Eastern Europe of electronic sorting machines and equipment for fruit and vegetables. The company laid the foundations for the development of this industry in Poland.
IDEA and VISION
From the beginning of the company, a joint vision of the founders of the company resulted in the development of new standards of competition, not only in the domestic, but also in the global market. The innovation and quality of work, the creation of own innovative and courageous projects and the thrust of customers gained by offering high quality and reliable machines and equipment have become the most important factors to influence current market position. Goods marked with the SORTER’s trademark have became sought not only in the country, but also in the global market.
At the end of 2015, a new office in Radom was opened at ul. Sadownicza 7, a modern office building and a 900 square meters assembly hall, where the production and testing of new technological solutions takes place. The investment is closely connected with launching of a series of RDS sorting machines and receiving EU funding for this purpose. The new headquarters and comprehensive production and assembly facilities are another important step towards the development and strengthening of the Sorter’s brand.
COMPANY'S BUSINESS ACTIVITY
The ambition of creating products for the high technology industry has contributed to the extension of company’s profile to other industry sectors.
The own technological ideas caused that the available solutions of mechanical and electronic components often fell short of the expectations, therefore the development of the R&D, Electronics, Automation, Mechanics, Assembly and Implementation departments was a natural direction of development.
Since 2015, SORTER has been involved in an international research project. The task of scientists involved in ALABO project is to develop a technology for the production of eco-friendly and innovative photovoltaic cells on a flexible substrate of transparent film. As part of the project, in the SORTER’S Lab, the advanced work on designing a vision system that will control the laser process of scribing the correct solar cell structure in its individual layers.
2012 – 2018 participation in EU project "Development of an innovative technology of an automatic integrated 6-axis manipulator equipped with a vision system enabling product’s orientation."
The project was co-financed as part of Measure 1.4 Support for goal-oriented projects of Priority Axis 1 Research and development of modern technologies of the Innovative Economy Operational Program based on the financing agreement OP IE no. 01.04.00-22-205/12 of 12th November 2012.
In the company's research and development laboratory thee were also carried out state-of-the-art works on creating the first Polish 6-axis robot-manipulators. The official premiere of one of them, SUR15, took place at the Taropak Fair in Poznan in 2016. Modern, versatile manipulators of the SUR series with a range of tools allow you to revolutionize the numerous production processes in factories and warehouses of our customers.
2014 – 2018 participation in EU project, “Development of the automation technology and robotics of technological processes for sorting and packing with the use of manipulators and grippers” implemented on the basis of the SG OP 01.01-00-0566/15 contract, Measure 1.1 “R&D projects of enterprises.”, Sub‑measure 1.1.1 “Industrial research and development work implemented by enterprises”.
The result of the project will be a new generation of sorting machines, which are in fact automated and robotic processing centers for sorting and packaging fruit and vegetables with features, properties and parameters that are impossible to obtain in other technologies.
