Fresh-Cut Core Removal System Eliminates Manual Coring

KEYCore-Removal-System.jpg
Key Technology introduces onCore, a new integrated system that revolutionizes the processing of iceberg and romaine lettuces in bagged salads.  The system, which  combines a vibratory density separation shaker with a camera/laser sorter, eliminates manual coring to increase yields and improve product quality while reducing labor costs.

In addition to eliminating manual coring, onCore simultaneously removes foreign material and product defects from the production line, further improving product quality and food safety. With onCore, the whole, uncored heads of lettuce are brought into the plant and cut using the same automated cutting technology that is traditionally used to cut cored heads of lettuce.  After cutting, onCore’s two-step process removes the pieces of core as well as foreign material and defects from the product stream.
