Rick Wielgus, S+S technical manager of recycling, who has 27 years of experience, is managing the new facility.
The move comes after S+S opened its corporate headquarters last fall in Tucker, Ga.
S+S Inspection is part of S+S Separation and Sorting Technology GmbH of SchÃ¶nberg, Germany, which makes separation and sorting equipment. The new headquarters gave the German parent direct control over sales and service.
In new product news, S+S introduced an optical sorter called Spektrum G. The unit solves the problems of feeding granular and pellet material by replacing the conventional feed chute or conveyor with a free-fall setup, increasing productivity and net yield. S+S said using a chute to feed material through the inspection area can result in lateral movement of material, causing poor separation along the width of the belt.
Spektrum G uses specifically matched vibratory feeders to deliver the material for sorting to a high-speed conveyor.
