Flexible deployment, increased sorting depth – the high-performance STEINERT KSS | CLI combination sensor sorting system

Effective separation of circuit boards, cables and stainless steel

The combination of color, 3D and metal detection enables sensor-based sorting of many complex tasks. Secondary characteristics detected by sensors – like certain shapes or color information – are often revealing for different materials. A logical combination of these features then permits material allocation and results in reliable enrichment of certain materials within a product fraction.

Our STEINERT KSS | CLI is typically used in sorting cables or the sorting of non-ferrous metals with clean surfaces. The generation of circuit board or stainless steel concentrates are standard applications. The resulting concentrates can be subsequently cleaned up as necessary using negative sorting to meet even the highest requirements.


Unlike in our STEINERT ISS induction sorting system, metals can be sorted both positively and negatively in the STEINERT KSS | LI through a combination of 3D detection and inductive sensor. Our combination sensor sorting system actively extracts all non-metals in the case of negative metal sorting. This may be useful depending on the metal proportion in the sortable material; to conserve compressed air thus increasing energy efficiency, for example.


Complex processing concepts using existing sensor-based sorting technology are often augmented by STEINERT KSS. This enables you to generate high-quality products and be one step ahead of the increasing statutory and market-based requirements.

The STEINERT KSS | CLI is a combination of:

C = colour detection
L = laser (3D detection)
I = inductive sensor

Contact us and we will be happy to advise you on which sensor combination is best for your application.

Your benefits:

  • Color, 3D and metal detection combined
  • Increase in the sorting depth
  • Solution of different sorting tasks by an all-in-one machine
  • Variable positive and negative sorting
  • Customised sorting programmes
