A contract has been signed with one of the largest recycling companies for ferrous and non-ferrous metals in Europe on an application to sort out copper parts in ferrous waste streams. This first order of 230 k€ consists of integrating a robotic sorting unit on one of their many waste processing lines of shredded metal parts.
