About Xeltron

Our history

Fernando Castañeda

XELTRON® was founded on 1974 by Mr. Fernando Castañeda, chemist by profession who, after identifying the need for a more efficient color sorting option and, after a thorough research process, developed an optical analyzer unique in the world. With the help of a sophisticated electronic system, he was able to analyze each individual grain by its color and reach a scientifically accurate and consistent sort.


That’s when XELTRON® was born, a leading company that for over 42 years, designs, manufactures and commercializes color sorting machines used worldwide by leading international companies, coffee producers and others, for sorting grains, plastic, emeralds, and more.


Today, XELTRON® continues the legacy and vision of its founder, constantly innovating to meet the expectations of an increasingly demanding global market, offering personalized attention and the best sort in the market.
