Breakthrough in Plastic Sorting

Specim announces the upgraded Specim FX50 middle-wave infrared (MWIR) hyperspectral camera. The Specim FX50 is the first and only push-broom hyperspectral camera on the market that covers the full MWIR spectral range of 2.7 – 5.3 μm.

This breakthrough product with enhanced features and capabilities expands the possibilities in industrial sorting, quality control, process optimisation, and research by detecting materials that are not detectable with any other wavelength or imaging method, such as hydrocarbons, minerals, oil, and contamination on metal surfaces.

The launch of the improved Specim FX50 marks a significant milestone for Specim and our customers. The first version of the camera was released in 2019 and its demand exceeded our expectations, and we’re excited about the untapped possibilities this camera offers.

Applications:

  • Black plastics sorting
  • Metal Industry
  • Geology and mining
  • Safety and Security 

The new Specim FX50 drives cost efficiency and sustainability by enabling efficient raw material detection, manufacturing, and identifying valuable materials worth recovering for recycling and reuse. In particular, it revolutionises the field of black plastic sorting, as it is the only product with the required wavelength range capable of sorting difficult black plastics.

One remarkable benefit of the Specim FX50 is its game-changing impact on black plastic sorting. The FX50 camera enables the identification and separation of black plastics effectively, helping to boost the efficiency, accuracy, and profitability of the crucial process.
