For food safety reasons, it is essential that the sorting machine itself is clean and is not a contamination source. We have upgraded the GeoSort, for which we are renown, adding stainless steel or synthetic parts. And leaving out the parts that are sensitive to dirt and contamination.
High pressure cleaning
In the whole machine you will find as few horizontal surfaces as possible. The design is kept open. GREEFA adjusted the design in such a way that the build-up of dirt and chance of bacteria growth is kept to a minimum. The user can immediately see the presence of dirt and therefore can start cleaning faster and more easily.
In all cases it is possible to clean the machine with a high-pressure cleaner.
Our SmartPackr apple packing robot is fast and optimally designed for consistent packaging of high-quality fruit. It fills trays and open top boxes at a rate of up to two fruits per second.
And to ensure the quality of the packed fruit by a final quality scan, the robot is fitted with GREEFA’s measuring system for external quality detection (iQS) .
Machine operation and touch screen
The fruits enter the robot’s domain on an infeed belt and rotate on the diabolo unit to the packing mechanism. Blushes and orientation are recognized to help place them in the right position for pick-up with the robot arm. Which then checks if this fits the relevant tray before actually placing it there with blush side up and in the selected stem-calyx orientation.
It’s fast and very fruit-friendly.
As soon as it’s completely filled, the tray is carefully transported on an evacuation belt for further handling – usually to a box-filling station.
