VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA — Cimbria has a new strategic collaboration with Australia-based OFI Weight & Inspection Solutions for the SEA range of optical sorters.

OFI Weight & Inspection Solutions designs, manufactures and services product inspection equipment for various industries such as foods, packaging, pharmaceuticals, and logistics.
