The SICON LaserSort is a unique combination of Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy and multiple separation channels in order to separate clean metal and alloy materials out of complex material mixtures of all kinds. Usually recyled materials have to be used in compromise applications whereas SICON LaserSort products can be used in primary application within the Cradle to Cradle philosophy of recycling.

Other than standard recycling machines the SICON LaserSort was developed from a team of experts in Laser and separation technologies and also from design experts to show its superiority.
