Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) has named Matthias Erdmannsdoerfer Managing Director of Max-AI®. As Managing Director, Erdmannsdoerfer will be responsible for the Max-AI product line including Sales, Business Development and Product & Application Development.
Max-AI technology employs artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize materials similar to the way a person does. Launched by BHS in 2017, Max-AI technology powers robotic sorters, optical sorters and reporting systems, and will continue to be integrated into new and existing equipment throughout Material Recovery Facilities (MRFs).
Since its inception, more than 50 Max-AI AQC (for Autonomous Quality Control) robotic sorters have been sold in quality control (QC) applications of both fiber and containers. Recently, NRT announced the SpydIR® with Max-AI, an optical sorter that also uses Max-AI technology to create new sort options and increases overall recovery and purity.
BHS is a worldwide leader in the innovative design, engineering, manufacturing and installation of sorting systems and components for the solid waste, recycling, waste-to-energy, and construction and demolition industries.
