CombiFix-I

The CombiFix-I is a repair machine which corrects youngplant trays to 100%

Description

The CombiFix-I is the most succesfull gapping and correction machine for youngplant trays ever. It's succes is based on a one-frame machine which selects the incoming trays on the optical appearance of each individual plant. Empty plugs, or bad and too smal plants are removed at the a blow-out section. Empty plugs are collected and discarted from the CombiFix-I through a waste conveyor belt. Now, the CombiFix-I will allocate one tray as a donor tray which provides the plants. Other trays will receive plants, thus being corrected to 100% full trays with qualified plants.
With use of the TTA pusherpin system, even fragile plants with an incomplete rooting system can be handled with almost no damage to the rootplug. The advantage of repairing trays is an optimum use of available space, uniformity in plant material and plant development and proces optimization during automatic transplanting.
Consequently, the market is asking for 100% filled young plant trays for use with automated transplanting. There’s no other machine on the market available which offers the quality and speed of the CombiFix.
The CombiFix-I is designed as a moveable small single frame (3,8 x 2,2 meter) in which all processes occur. Destacking units and discard rollers are available.
