New technology makes paper pot sticking easier

Ellepot introduces a state-of-the-art technology helping growers to produce extra loose and soft pots with 10-20% higher air content. The result is faster and easier sticking of cuttings and an optimal precondition for great air and moisture balance, creating the perfect microclimate for more rapid and uniform root development. The new technology facilitates the best possible conditions for young plants as well as a higher degree of automatization.

The new Ellepot Flex20 AIR
The key to all the benefits is the recently launched Ellepot Flex20 AIR machine, which has been developed and tested for more than five years.

With 20 pipes and a capacity of up to 45,000 pots per hour, the new Flex20 AIR technology is a fully automatic and integrated production line giving growers full control, automatization and greater flexibility. The user-friendly 12” touchscreen guides users through each option, and there are help functions and layout overviews onscreen for easy operation. From the touchscreen, customers can choose from multiple settings to produce softer and more loosely filled Ellepots.

The 12” touchscreen display is part of Ellepot’s new technology
