Generate light-metal products in just one sorting step with the Line Sorting System STEINERT LSS | LIBS (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy)

Paradigm shift initiated – with the STEINERT LSS

The quantity flows of sortable material become ever shorter as sorting depth increases. If the separation of several products in just one sorting step is required, changeover times and the effort for material handling can be massively reduced. Our STEINERT LSS line sorting system was designed for this very purpose and makes it possible for multiple product fractions to be sorted in just one step. The conveyor system specifically designed by STEINERT means that all of the objects pass through the detection zone lined up one behind the other and then through a series of side discharges.

The STEINERT LSS | LIBS is used to sort aluminium scrap by alloy type. The LIBS (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) technology allows the alloy elements to be determined and quantified with precision thus permitting a distinction to be made between a large number of different alloy types. With wrought alloys, for example, it can distinguish between classes such as 5XXX and 6XXX. Alongside the LIBS unit, the sorting machine is also equipped with 3D detection to capture a high spatial resolution of the object form.

Your benefits:

  • LSS - Line Sorting System
  • Sorting of aluminium by alloy classes using LIBS
  • Increase in the sorting depth
  • Generate multiple products in just one sorting step

Aluminum recycling

As a lightweight, high-performance material, aluminum is increasingly replacing steel, particularly in automotive engineering. This makes the recovery of this metal highly interesting as a value-creating process.
