  • Additional Packer monitoring (for missed bunches per packer).

Additional features specific to grape sorting:

  •  Considerable increase in labour productivity.

SOFTWARE

Vizier Systems’ Belt Sizer is integrated with user friendly software functionality. The system can manage cumulative production figures per field/orchard or packer, overall labour production costs and productivity statistics. 

Operational diagnostic tools are available to assist with maintenance. Multiple sorting programs can be configured, stored and recalled.

PERFORMANCE

Precise grading and sorting by weight is achieved by using in line weighing with a seperate weight belt and guided transfers. The fruit are sorted using padded pneumatic arms. 

Accurate weighing is enabled by taking multiple weight samples per fruit through high precision load cells. Mechanical and electrical noise are also filtered from the measurements. 

For the sizer systems to perform to specification, maintenance and support guidelines need to be followed. You can book a service on our website as well as purchase our training packages to ensure the optimal use of your sizer.
