- Model AQC-C - Autonomous Quality Control (AQCs) Sorting Machine



Max-AI AQCs (for Autonomous Quality Control) are the ultimate in post-sort automation. When combined with NRT optical sorters, the paper and container sorting process is 100% autonomous and the need for human contact with waste is eliminated. The AQC-C is a solution that is comprised of Max-AI VIS (for Visual Identification System) and at least one collaborative robot (CoBot). CoBots can work alongside people, minimizing structural requirements and footprint while improving maintenance access. The AQC-C can be quickly and easily placed into existing Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs) with no down time. This advanced technology uses a machine vision system to see the material, specialized artificial intelligence to think and identify each item, and robotic sorters to pick targeted items or contamination. Max-AI AQCs provide MRF operators with sustained and consistent sorting performance while improving safety, recovery, product quality and operational expenses.
