Smart Placing Robot, the ‘artificial hand’

Smart Placing Robot, the ‘artificial hand’
Innovation

This intelligent robotic arm picks up the plants from the WPS carrier system fully automatically and places them at high speed in trays that are automatically supplied. The ‘artificial hand’ protects the plants against damage.

This smart robot is your best worker. It never gets tired, it is never sick, it has an excellent work capacity and works with a high degree of accuracy. What’s more, you know exactly what your output will be, making your business processes more transparent and more predictable.

Kalanchoë grower KP Holland has taken the packing robot already into use.

Vision / SmartScan

Vision / SmartScan

Sorting pot plants calls for a very precise eye. Growers who set high sorting standards therefore prefer an automatic eye: with Vision camera technology. These are key elements of every sorting solution. That’s why we at WPS prefer to develop our Vision solutions in-house. That way we can match the technology better to the needs of the discerning grower. And we can also integrate the cameras perfectly with other parts of the system.
