Internal transport Conveyor system:

  • Fast, gentle and very efficient transfer of bulk peppers (can also be used for transporting loose truss tomatoes)
  • Eliminates high ground traffic (less congestion improving health and safety and reducing possible disease transfer between glasshouse sections)
  • Eliminates mass transport/storage bins commonly utilized with other automated systems
  • Much more efficient, cost effective than AGV systems
  • Very low maintenance requirements
  • Bin weights and staff picking performance/quality evaluated real time in the glasshouse when loaded onto transfer elevator
