MacroPhor™ Flatbed HSI is a flatbed scanner that features a 40 inch long by 4 inch wide glass surface for easy sample placement. Place your sample directly on the glass and start scanning. Camera optics are focused at the plane of the glass to produce crisp in focus images every time.

Sample specimens can include plants and plant materials, minerals, small animals, food and insects to name a few. Fixed laser wavelength excitation illuminates the sample in a line while scanning the image. Multiple laser wavelength sources are available and include 405nm, 488nm , 532nm and 640nm. Laser sources are mounted in an interchangeable mount that makes it easy to switch between wavelengths.

Flatbed HSI supports up to two cameras for concurrent imaging. Camera combinations can include Fluorescence, VNIR, NIR or SWIR cameras.

Breakthrough in Black Plastic Sorting

Black plastics are widely used in the automotive industry, electronics, food packages, plastic bags, they can be found all around us. Unfortunately, instead of recycling, they are burned for energy or dumped to landfill, since there has not been efficient and reliable technology available to sort them. Hyperspectral imaging is the only technology that can identify black plastic types when used on MWIR spectral range.

Specim FX50 is the only hyperspectral camera available on the market covering the full MWIR spectral range 2.7 – 5.3 μm that is required with black plastics. This allows fast and reliable sorting of:

– Black plastics such as PS, PE, PP, ABS and PVC
– Certain additives, like flame retardants
– Rubbers
– Non-black plastics and rubbers
