â€¢ Peach pack line (worked actually only 1 full season) was valued @ R2.3m ïƒ¨ this included the rope-sizer and mono rail for empty packaging and the automated box tipper and other sorting equipment, tables and computers as it currently stands.
The 8 packing tables move on an electronic weight / eye and only move forward once the belt becomes full to ensure that there is no build-up of fruit on any line. The computer can weigh each individual fruit do give you an exact weight per tray and not what a rope sizer does where you find that the boxes are too heavy. A camera facility has been built in so that it merely needs to be added to allow for colour sorting. It is the only machine on the market that can be expanded to either a 6 or 8 lane machine. It is also the only machine on the market that can do all stone fruit (peaches, nectarines, apricots(, citrus, apples and pears by only modifying the intake area.
