Tomra recycling system turns waste into treasure

in supermarkets in Norway, a special machine is often installed in a spacious space near the entrance - this is the world's famous tomra recycling system. Adults and children who enter the supermarket will stop here first and stuff the waste drink bottles and cans they bring into the round hole above the machine. Soon, a voucher was spitted out from the mouth of the machine's printing product, which is known as the product that can be painted by yourself, and the value of these beverage bottles and cans was printed. The coupon takes effect immediately, and you can deduct it when you buy something

at present, tomra recycling system has been widely used in European and American countries and Japan. The working principle of the tomra recycling system is not complicated. As soon as the waste beverage bottles and cans are plugged in from the round hole, they are immediately scanned by the laser device. The microprocessor compares the information with the stored bottle and can information, and immediately identifies the types of various bottles and cans, whether plastic, glass, or metal. In the sorting device, they enter the corresponding containers respectively. In order to reduce the volume of recycled items, plastic is cut into small pieces, and aluminum cans are flattened to minimize the volume and facilitate storage

tomra's invention dates back to the 1970s. Norwegian hydraulic universal spring height: 100 (3) 00mm; Peter, the experimenter, was working in the self selected market industry, selling labeled machines and equipment. Mr. IQI, the leading supermarket operator in Oslo, often complained that Peter said that the current market particle price was about 5000 (1) 2000 yuan per ton, and he was almost submerged by waste beverage bottles, so he had to find a better recycling method. Peter said that he was sorry that the company he worked for only paid attention to labeling and did not have this ability. But he quickly told his brother taoe about it and asked him to find a way

taoe was a capable engineer who was participating in the development of the world's first automated navigation system for super large oil tankers. After hearing the "bottle problem" raised by Mr. IQI, he began to find a solution in his spare time. First of all, he met with the self selected market owners, who vaguely described what they wanted: a machine with a hole dug in it, and the customer just stuffed the bottle into it; We also need to print out the value of the recycled items. The bottle and can manufacturer provided a complete set of specification data of bottles and cans for design purposes. Taoe and Peter quickly came up with the design idea and said that it would take NOK 20000 to build the prototype machine. The self selected market owner agreed to pay without frowning. On January 2, 1972, the first tomra recycling machine was launched in a supermarket in IQI. By the end of the year, the number of recycling machines installed had reached 29. Later, at the request of systembolaget, a Swedish liquor oligarch, a special model was produced to cooperate with its vending machines all over the country, which was also a success

in 1978, the new tomra model adopted a new generation of bottle and can recognition technology, which further enhanced its performance. Although the photocell used by the old model of tomra works reliably, each kind of bottle and can needs to be processed by a special machine and needs to be corrected manually, so the maintenance cost is expensive. The advent of microprocessors in the mid-1970s brought good news to tomra. In 1978, it launched the first recycling system that users can set up by themselves. The new model widely uses microprocessors, optical fibers, laser technology and other advanced means. Its bottle and can identification system is based on electronically stored bottle data. After each bottle and can is plugged in, the machine immediately determines which kind of beverage container it is and whether its material has deductible value through identification and comparison, and then disposes accordingly. It adopts graphical touch screen display, which is very convenient for customers. Businesses can easily configure themselves according to the size of their stores

especially, because it is equipped with a built-in modem, tomra recycling systems installed all over the world can be connected to the headquarters through the Internet. The bottles and cans "eaten" by each machine are counted in real time and summarized to the information center of the headquarters in real time for release. If you click the station of tomra company, there is a counter at the bottom right, which displays the dynamic number of waste beverage containers newly collected by tomra system all over the world at any time. The advent of tomra has played an important role in promoting the recycling of beverage bottles and cans
