SEA introduced the first prototype of opto-electronic sorting machine for rice on Italian market. The immediate success led SEA to approach new markets in Europe and to develop sorting machines for other applications, such as nuts, pulses and other dry food and non-food products.SEA company has become part of CIMBRIA A/S Danish industrial group of companies, having their headquarters in Thisted, Denmark. With that acquisition, the optical sorting ranges and other electronic solutions will integrate Cimbria mechanical sorting machinery, so completing the working diagram for different products. Thanks to that acquisition, SEA can count on an enhanced and deep-rooted sales net in the international markets, allowing SEA to have a considerable growth both in terms of profits and of new markets penetration.


1968 was the year SEA launched on the Italian market the first prototype of optical electronic colour sorting machine for rice.

The success immediately obtained on the Italian market impelled SEA to search for new markets in Europe and to create sorting machines also for other products, ranging from dried fruits to legumes and other foodstuff. The newly developed technologies allowed to approach in 1989 the recycling industry with the realisation of sorting machines specifically designed for plastic materials and glass cullet. In 2004 the separator by resonance has collected more and more the favour of the markets explored.
