The Ortomec headquarters
"RHarvesting by selecting the best leaves, is now a common request by the packagers of leaf vegetables like salad, rocket, spinach and corn salad and is becoming increasingly important."
Selecta Stock riddling table
"Ortomec has therefore widened the range of field harvesting machines with this warehouse version which works well even at the beginning of the packaging chain."
But how does it work? "The produce is unloaded on top of a conveyor belt that carries it towards six trays that can be switched according to the size of the produce. The whole structure is made of stainless steel and it can be moved easily thanks to the four wheels."
"In addition to sorting, the machine is also ideal for the creation of mixed salads: just unload different varieties of lettuce on the conveyor belt and the mix is done," adds the sales manager.
The machinery in action.
"Selecta Stock is just the latest of a series of new products that Ortomec designs and manufactures every day in order to provide its Italian and foreign customers with practical and efficient custom-made solutions. This is the key to our success, which means we can still be positive despite the crisis and continue with a trend that has been going on for the last ten years."
And the new product was not overlooked at Macfrut 2013: "There were more foreign visitors than in the past editions, which confirmed our expectations of an increasingly international trend."
