If regulations, costs, or a damaged pipe rail make it impossible to raise the harvest container to the height required, the picking chute is the ideal solution for getting the bell peppers into the containers without damaging them. The length and angle of inclination are easily and continuously adjustable, and the fall arresting bag set enables all heights to be managed.
Because the container floor gradually moves down as the container is being filled, the top level stays in line with the edge of the container at all times, i.e. the bell peppers are always laid in the container, at the top. Bell peppers are no longer damaged by being tossed or by falling and your harvest performance will improve.
The containers are emptied with the utmost care. Their contents are not dumped in one go, but a system of sensors and vibration is used to ensure that controlled amounts of bell peppers are removed until the container is empty. This prevents damage.
The big boxes with the bell peppers are supplied to a sorter for further processing. Just like the containers, the big boxes are unloaded in a careful, controlled manner.
Ergonomic and with automatic discharge to a buffer or a palletising system, enabling high productivity.
Pallets are filled one layer at a time. Automatic supply of empty pallets and removal of full pallets is possible, as are strapping, wrapping and/or labelling. The advantage of a conventional palletiser is its high speed, particularly when combined with pre-stacked containers.
