Eima 2012 Technical Innovations - Green Rabbit

Reason for recognition of “Technical Innovations 2012”
The proposed solution allows solving one of the major obstacles in the cultivation of asparagus by fully mechanizing the harvesting operations. Besides, it is an example of successful integration between industry and research.

Self propelled, automated and electrically driven machinery for reaping asparaguses. This machine is equipped with two systems: one moves the vegetablepicking arm along three Cartesian axes to approach the asparagus, goes all the way down to the base of the shoot, cuts it and then moves back up until it reaches the crates in which the asparagus is placed; the other system brings the empty crate from the ground up to the machine until it reaches filling position and then releases them on the ground full of shoots.
