5BASIC SIZING CRITERIA FOR SORTING PLANTS Automation of light weight packaging sorting manual lines The decision to automate a light weight packaging sorting facility is conditioned by the annual amounts to be processed. From the point of view of unit sorting costs, automated sorting installations have better efficiency compared to manual facilities beyond 3,000 t/year input or 2,000 t/year of sorted materials. Automated processes have higher treatment capacity, resulting in fewer processing hours and sorting efficiencies above 85%, reducing unit sorting costs. 0,600 0,500 0,400 0,300 0,200 0,100 MANUAL AND AUTOMATIC COST CURVE -- Manual Sorting Plants Cost Curve - - Automatic Sorting Plants Cost Curve >  3.000  t  treated 0 2.000.000 4.000.000 6.000.000 8.000.000 10.000.000 12.000.000 Unit cost Kg outgoing Lightweight Packaging
