Produce Industry Fair meets Automation
Come along and see us on stand numbers:19-30
FANUC robots have been integrated into a 'breakthrough' selective automated broccoli harvesting system, which has the potential to revolutionise the UK vegetable industry in the face of spiralling production costs.
Over 75,000 tonnes of broccoli are grown and harvested across the UK each year. Commercial growers typically rely on a team of seven people to manually harvest crops. The monotonous work often takes place in unpleasant working conditions and can lead to repetitive strain injuries and other long-term health conditions.Read More
