A Conversation with Jim Savigny, General Manager at Fox Solutions
The 2020 Potato Expo will be hosted in Las Vegas January 13-14 and the Fox Packaging and Fox Solution's teams are gearing up to showcase our line of premier flexible packaging and packing automation solutions.
We sat down with Fox Solutions' Jim Savigny, who has been with us for 5 years and is a 30-year veteran of the equipment solutions industry, to learn more about Newtec's Celox-P-UHD, an optical sorting machine manufactured specifically for potato automation.
Unlike its counterparts, the Newtec Celox-P-UHD Optical Sorter's unique design provides simultaneous sorting by quality, size and shape. The machine's three camera system photographs each and every potato up to 45 times to catch a wide range of surface defects such as external damage, black spots, dry cuts, gray damage, greening and rotting.
