CUTTING SCION MACHINE

CUTTING SCION

The BM76G makes it possible to cut at a very high rate the previously cleaned branches
and provides a calibrated sorting and a quality control.

Artboard 3bm76g1bm76g-7bm76g-5bm76g-6bm76g-3bm76g-4

Advantages

  • About 76 conformed scions per minute, calibrated by diameter, including internode cut, resulting in 2 cuts per scion
  • Camera dedicated to quality control (geometric and colorimetric control system)
  • Only 1 operator per machine
  • Cutting, quality analysis and scion sorting in a single fully automated operation

Why use a BM76G ?

  • It saves me the cost of 2 operators
  • It calibrates scions
  • I can’t find anyone else to do it with the pruning shears.
  • Scions are a noble and delicate material, I need to improve the quality and precision of the cut.
  • I need to improve safety to avoid injury risks
  • I need to reduce the drudgery of the performed tasks

The BM76G received the 2019 Innovation Trophy awarded by SITEVI.

THE BM76G IN ACTION

IN DETAILS

Rated capacities :

  • About 76 scions per minute, conformed scions, calibrated by diameter and length, including internode cut, resulting in 2 cuts per scion.
  • Camera dedicated to quality control (geometric and colorimetric control system)
  • Management of scions referral :
    • Up to 3 production calibers
    • Non-compliant: grafts that do not meet the defined criteria
  • Only 1 operator per machine

Actual capacity production: about 4 600 compliant scions in 1 hour

Conditions to be reaching the production capacities:

  • The wood introduced into the machine must be pre-cleaned (elimination of tendrils and laterals) and pre-sorted
  • Buds not damaged by pre-cleaning
  • Removal of dry ends
  • Elimination of oversized pieces according to industry standards

 

Compliant wood:

  • Wood quality: cleaned, harvest of the year or wood stored according to the profession conditions
  • Uninterrupted feeding

Processing capabilities:

  • Type of wood: All qualities
  • Diameter: 4 to 17 mm
  • Cutting precision: +/- 2 mm

Care/Maintenance:

  • Cleaning the cutting blades: 1 x per day
  • Quick cleaning of the camera with a microfiber cloth (dust removal): 4 x per day
  • Quick blowing for dust removal: 4 x per day (same as cleaning the cameras)

Restrictions/Limits:

  • Non-compliant wood (humidity, tendrils, …) may degrade the machine performance.
  • The natural wood defects (disease, hail, detached skin, …) that do not generate a consequent deformation or shapes very similar to an eye are deliberately not detected by the machine. In fact, they cannot be interpreted as underperformance. This configuration therefore leaves the possibility of a second manual sorting, at the user’s free choice, to verify the scion conformity.
