International food processing technology company MHM Automation has designed what it describes as world-leading robotic technology for apple company Rockit Global.
Four H&C apple tube filling machines – which each contain three robots – automate the task of picking and packing apples at Rockit Global’s new $40m packhouse in Hastings, which opened earlier this month.
An integrated vision system identifies the height of each apple to allow the robots to select the right sized apples to fill each tube, and has enabled a threefold increase in Rockit Global’s packing throughput, to 20 tubes and 100 apples per minute.
