Bollegraaf Introduces RoBB–the World’s First Automated QC Sorter

Introducing RoBB – Robotics by Bollegraaf.


This fully automated robot is able to pick multiple kinds of plastics, such as PET, PE, and PS, as well as paper and OCC. It delivers high levels of purity and separation quality during the final stages of quality control, resulting in a significantly higher value of output.

RoBB’s new, laser-guided system detects the height of waste products. Together, the NIR (near-infrared) and height cameras enable precision sorting of recyclables by both material recognition and 3D detection. Achieve higher rates of purity and better separation quality than ever before.
