AgRay Vision is built on over 25 years of experience in the potato-sorting industry. Its new system takes proven modules-singulation, x-ray, slide ejection, computing-and integrates them into a seamless system for accurately sizing, sorting, detecting internal and external defects and shape grading of potatoes.

AgRay Vision uses complex proprietary morphological detectors to identify internal defects. The system can also detect misshapen potatoes (heart, banana, bottle, barbell and other shapes). In addition, the system can identify knobs, depressions, growth cracks, digger cuts and excessive dirt.

The AgRay software has the ability to process two potatoes individually even when they are touching, thus reducing recycling and increasing overall throughput.
