Certhon and De Ruiter host

Visit to see the newest harvest robot in action during GreenTech

On the final day of GreenTech, June 13th, De Ruiter Experience Center, in collaboration with Certhon, will host an exclusive morning visit to showcase advancements in horticultural technology. This special event promises to be an opportunity for attendees to witness the cherry tomato harvesting robot, Artemy, in action and learn more about De Ruiter.

Certhon and DENSO recently introduced a fully automated robot for harvesting cherry tomatoes: Artemy. During GreenTech Amsterdam from June 11 to 13, Artemy will be on display at the Certhon stand (05.235). Artemy represents a significant leap forward in horticultural automation. It is capable of performing automatic lane changes and crate changes, and operates for 20 hours a day, including nighttime and under LED lighting. This level of efficiency and autonomy has the potential to revolutionize the industry, and attendees will have the unique chance to see it in action at De Ruiter Experience Center, located in Bleiswijk, Netherlands.
