    The Oculus sorter is a unique three-drop sorting solution, with a robust design that is easy and inexpensive to run and maintain…all in one of the smallest footprints in the industry. Oculus uses a unique roller design that allows easy singulation and yields superior grading results. Combined with Exeter Engineering’s exclusive ID Technology — our optical grading suite of cameras (capable of taking images in both visible and infra-red spectrums), custom-tuned LED lighting, and AI-powered decision-making algorithms — the rollers present each piece of product to the imaging system with a 360° view. Superior presentation means better imagery, and better imagery gives you consistent grading results unmatched in the fresh produce industry.

    Oculus is also built to be gentle on both your product and your budget. Each Oculus structure made from 5/16” 304 stainless steel, with the conveyors made from 12 gauge 304 stainless steel. That rugged construction ensures that it will last season after season. And the gentle handling nature of the selection fingers also protects your product…while also lasting over twice as long as other types of sorters. In fact, maintenance costs overall are typically more than 70% less than competing machines. With a compact footprint and a wide range of configuration options, the Oculus has represents the highest quality grading results for the lowest overall cost.
