About Cimbria


Cimbria is one of the world’s leading companies within industrial processing, handling and storage of grain and seed, as well as animal feed, foodstuffs and other bulk products.

AI takes optical sorting to new levels of efficiency and quality

Cimbria goes further: With the brand-new AI-powered software, BRAINTM, Cimbria introduces a highly advanced control system in its top-range optical sorters. As an AI-first mover in the optical sorting business, Cimbria combines many years of solid knowledge and expertise with high technology and artificial intelligence. The result is the ability to easily create the most complex recipes for the best optical sorting ever, increasing the efficiency by up to 18%.  

Artificial intelligence (AI) now allows customers to experience easy and simple handling of optical sorters from Cimbria while operating at a highly advanced level. The combination of human operation and machine learning increases the precision sorting of raw materials for impressive results.

- With BRAIN we have revolutionized the way our top-range optical sorter operates. Our many years of experience and in-depth knowledge of what makes the best possible sorting are key to creating the most complex recipes for optical sorting. This simplifies the manual operation of the machine because the right settings have already been adjusted for an optimized outcome through artificial intelligence, explains Michela Pelliconi, Head of Sales Optical Sorting at Cimbria, and continues:

- A complex algorithm of the BRAIN software enables the SEA.IQ PLUS optical sorter to identify elements even more precisely and distinguish color, shape, size, and defects quickly and easily, saving precious time and manual workload. 

The highly qualified and thus very attractive technical staff overseeing optical sorters benefit from BRAIN, which simplifies machine use by providing AI-generated recipes. This reduces reliance on individual interpretation, leading to faster and simpler operations. This enhanced application allows operators to manage multiple sites and machines, increasing overall efficiency by approximately 18%.

Artificial intelligence is as good as the data it is built on. With Cimbria’s market-leading know-how and decades of experience, the AI-powered software is based on unique insights as well as massive and long-term experience on the most optimal sorting processes to secure the best quality of the end product.

- AI is an inevitable part of global business in 2024. At Cimbria, we are very proud of being the very first in our industry to introduce the extensive benefits and possibilities of artificial intelligence. With the launch of BRAIN, we have taken the first step into the endless opportunities of AI with the main focus on improving efficiency and quality for our customers, says Michela Pelliconi.
