Study on Automated Scrap-Sorting by an Image Processing Technology

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this study, an automated scrap-sorting system using image processing technology has been designed and examined to automatically sort out specified materials from a mixture, especially Cu and other non-ferrous metal scraps from a mixture of iron scraps. In the functional tests of the system, its efficiency in the separation of Cu scraps from its mixture with Fe ones reaches to 75 % or more at a conveying speed of 20 m/min., and thus it is expected that the system can be commercialized in the industry of shredder makers if an automated sorting system of high speed is realized.
