Renewed robotic waste sorting system announced

ZenRobotics has introduced the next model of ZenRobotics Recycler, a waste sorting system which reclaims raw materials from waste using robots.

The Next Generation ZenRobotics Recycler now doubles the capacity of the first robotic heavy waste sorting system introduced in 2012, according to a press release.

ZenRobotics states that the renewed system will increase the capacity of waste sorting plants. The Next Generation ZenRobotics Recycler incorporates both the speed of the previous model ZRR Fast Picker and the strength of the previous ZRR Heavy Picker – all in one multi-purpose solution.

“During the past year, we have focused on dramatically improving both the speed and the capacity. We have developed completely new hardware that enables fully automated waste sorting. Now we are breaking speed records all the time”, says ZenRobotics CEO Timo Taalas.

Currently, the Next Generation ZenRobotics Recycler can sort on average 3,000 picks per hour and the peak sorting speed is up to 4,000 picks per hour. New features include a new gripper that can pick even bigger and heavier objects. Fractions up to 50 cm wide and 20 kg in weight are no longer a problem.

Thanks to the renewed robust structure, the Next Generation ZenRobotics Recycler is particularly fit for a demanding heavy waste processing environment. Sorting the heavy and large fractions that you come across in construction & demolition waste or commercial & industrial waste streams requires a strong and durable System – especially when aiming for waste sorting that runs 24/7.

The Next Generation ZenRobotics Recyclers are already in operation at the Sita Suomi waste sorting plant in Helsinki. Sita Suomi is part of Suez Environnement.
