Automation revealed for greenhouse bell pepper packing

"Currently, to produce a sealed plastic overwrap rainbow pepper pack; farmers need to have employees manually handpick, and place bell peppers onto the flow wrappers in-feed conveyor before being sealed. This is a slow process and the bell pepper packing line can only run a minimum of one shift due to a shortage of quality people", the team with Agro PAK Solutions says. They explain how their patented automation assumes the role of the employees, providing de-stemming, stem orientation, and placement of bell peppers onto the flow wrappers in-feed before being wrapped with a plastic seal to produce solo,2,3,4,6 packs of pepper combinations.

Mayson Enterprises and Agro PAK Solutions will host an invitational and will open their doors on Thursday, Feb 09,10,11 2022 to a selected few. They explain that up to most recently, it may have been close to impossible to even find a local company that provides pepper assembly automation for the Ontario greenhouse bell pepper packer.

"Packing with the new solution is done with minimum post-harvest handling, only touched at the time of harvest; this provides retailers and their customers the freshest pepper packs possible due to less handling and quick packaging." 

This pre-pack assembly automation provides the ability to run a second or third shift, unheard of before due to the lack of persons available to work.

“This Windsor-built technology is unknown to the general greenhouse grower packer, until now and they will have access to a closer look at how the automation of the stem orientation and placing bell peppers can be achieved without manual labor. Most importantly the guest must have the right mindset towards improving their existing packaging process with automation.” Diogenes Gomez Designer & Patent Holder
