Macfrut Innovation Award for SmartPackr2

GREEFA, market leader in grading technology, vegetableshas been operating in Italy for over 50 years and has recently opened a branch in Alto Adige. At the Macfrut 2018 the company has introduced the SmartPackr2 to the Italian customers.

SmartPackr 2 is a machine developed for the delicate and efficient packaging of fruit in cells. It is a patented packing robot which is faster, more dependable and optimally designed to exceed customers’ expectations for consistent packaging of high-quality fruit. It fills trays and open top boxes at a rate of up to two fruits per second. To ensure the quality of the packed fruit by a final quality scan, the robot can be optionally fitted with GREEFA’s measuring system for external quality detection (iQS) and a final scan for color.

In Spain, there are systems that can sort 50 tons/hour of peaches and nectarines and only need 15 operators. This way, product quality is uniform and sales increase.

Also shown in Greefa´s Macfrut stand the SmartPalletizer, a high tech peripheral to make easier and more economical the process of palletizing.
