APPLE SIMPLE® by AGROSTA is a very simple automatic penetrometer to test apple maturity.
We have designed this machine in 2018, and adjusted speeds, strokes, probe and tables in order to cover all the existing range of apples in the world.
In order to increase accuracy, the tip moves down, it touches the fruit at high speed, then the sensor head goes back, and touches again the fruit at low speed, and then starts a specific stroke inside the fruit (According to the norm for apples maturity testing).
It gives an incredible accuracy and repeatibility (Around 1.5% when tested on calibrated foams)
