Our 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 can be optionally fitted with GREEFA’s measuring system for external quality detection (iQS) and a final scan for color.
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.
