Binder+Co AG

Binder+Co is a unique enterprise in the world of processing. After all, we offer six elementary processing steps from one single source: comminuting – screening – wet processing – thermal processing – sorting – packaging and palletizing. For many decades now, Binder+Co has supplied individual systems and overall processing plants to the mining and recycling industries. In doing so, we have always placed great value on novel ideas.

Sensor-based sorting for plastic

The growing scarcity of raw materials and ever stricter landfill regulations are calling for economical concepts for the processing of plastics. The different plastics must be freed from any contaminants for their further pure processing.

Owing to the great variety in customer specifications, Binder+Co has a wide range of products in plastics sorting. This has made it possible for us to match our CLARITY plastics sorting machine exactly to the demands of our customers: from the compact 2-way-system for flakes and granules sorting to the 2-way belt-sorting system or our unique multi-way sorting solution for hollow plastics. In addition, Binder+Co offers mechanical systems, such as screening machines and perforators for optimum preparation.

The unsorted crude material is fed into the machine and illuminated with light sources. Different sensors such as colour or near infrared cameras recognise the material type and colour. The valves mounted on the blow-off strip are actuated at just the right time, and the foreign material and defined colours are blown off into the corresponding sorting paths.
