The National Fruit Show 2017 at Detling Showground is nearly upon us and fret not, Kent Fruit Services will be there! Residing in our usual area of K8, we will be bringing you an array of Munckhof sprayers to marvel at, including a tower sprayer and the impressive new 3 row. To compliment these, we will also be displaying a Pluk-O-Trak which is an everpresent in any commercial orchard. More information and photos can be found on our Munckhof product page
We are also very excited to announce we will be displaying Greefa's brand new Smartpackr! This incredible piece of machinery picks and places apples, blush side up, into cells using highly intelligent cameras to detect which side is red. This can also be combined with defect cameras to ensure only the best fruit is selected.
A video of the machine in action can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQYI_pWeZTM
We look forward to seeing you all there next month.
Prime Produce have moved home; only by about a hundred yards but what a change it is! Their new packhouse is vast and state of the art. What better to put in such a building than a Greefa Geosort! They have extended their existing grader by 8 metres to create an extensive multifunctioning machine, to allow for both dry bin filling as seen by the brand new Greefa GBF's and also the ability to pack from it too.
The new Greefa gentle bin filler has been redesigned to make it the most fruit friendly version yet, ensuring the gentlest of handling.
All credit must go to Richard, Sean and Steve for their vision becoming a reality, creating an impressive new area for them to further be able to expand the business. Here at Kent Fruit Services, it's been a pleasure being able to facilitate their ideas and make their plans come to fruition. We hope to continue our relationship long into the future.
