The best integral solutions that increase your profit

At Aweta we understand that labour and training costs are on the increase and are putting more and more pressure on profit margins. For this reason, Aweta has engineered specific technology geared to sort particular citrus produce and reduce manpower: the Midstar for lemons, the Rollerstar for navels and the Megastar for grapefruit.


Aweta’s revolutionary Advanced Vision system and Inscan quality sensor means that inconsistent grading is a thing of the past. With a weight accuracy of +-1% (*) of actual weight targets and reliable grading software, we offer the best integral solution on the market and are dedicated to working with you to increase your profits and expand your business.

Innovation is what keeps us one step ahead of the competition

From software reports on percentage of defects to packaging with the right amount of precisely sized product, this is a complete turnkey solution that minimizes the number of operators required and improves profitability and return.


Customers have high expectations.
We need to stay at the cutting-edge of technology.

The All-New Advanced Vision 3D Hyper Spectral is revolutionary, incorporating high definition cameras able to pick up imperfections across specific ranges of the spectrum (Infra-red, Ultra-violet and specific colours) making skin defects easier to both identify and classify.




Citrus Quality

There is a growing demand for higher external and internal quality. The external quality of the produce is the driving factor in the decision to purchase the product while internal quality (texture, taste and absence of internal defects) is linked to aspects that are not generally perceived externally but are equally important to many consumers.

InScan-IQA- for citrus
Detects and measures internal parameters for all varieties and gives stable measurements with high repeatability.
• Sweetness [%Brix]
• Frost damage
• Granulation
• Cracked rinds or flesh
• Internal rot

Optional UV detection
UV detection is the latest technology available for citrus sorting. Integrated into the Advanced Vision 3D system, AWETA has developed the new UV illumination technology, to ensure that defects can be caught at an early stage. Progressive defects such as blue or green mold can easily go unnoticed but with the new UV setup, products showing these imperfections can be removed before they infect complete boxes or bins.

Grading Technology

Thanks to the flexibility of our neural network and LED technology, the Advanced_Vision_3D optical grading solution has the ability to identify and grade defects based on individual characteristics instead of solely by colour and contrast alone.



Packing Technology

Aweta provides tailor-made solutions. An example being our line of unique and versatile packaging systems. Produce is packaged in accordance to the individual requirements of the customer (e.g. supermarkets and retailers). Methods include crates, boxes, bags, nets, clamshells or punnets. All packaging can be labeled with the date of production and all other desired information, enabling accurate tracking and tracing on an international scale.



Palletizing Technology

All of our palletization processes operate using a unique management and supervision system, which includes equipment such as buffering and strapping that ensure perfect control of the packing lines, as well as efficient continuity and flow in production.
