Descripción completa

The Israeli company was established in 1935 as a developer of innovative agricultural equipment and since then develops, designs and manufactures various machine systems for sorting, conveying various products, weighing every single fruit, packing, washing etc. They provide turnkey solutions to handle post-harvest production. Each project is customized and produced in the company's factory. As a boutique, the company focuses on tailor-made solutions that fit the client's specific needs. The company differs in design creativity and flexibility at the same product prices as its competitors worldwide.
The company develops machine and machine systems. The latter manage entire process, from receiving fruits and vegetables to dumping, hot water treatment, cleaning, waxing, drying, sorting and grading all the way to packing. The offered machine systems are based on the latest technologies, ensure reliability, high quality service and applicability for vast variety of industries. The machine systems ensure only the best products to enter packing via weight sizing: numerous cup and roller graders have been designed especially for each product. The various graders are divided by preassigned parameters. Each grader comes with a very accurate weighing system that weighs each fruit and grades it according to the client settings.
Advanced optical systems are equipped with exclusive technologies for QA of fruits and vegetables (internal and external defects monitoring). Optical grading is performed according to size, color and external defects: the developed optic system serves as another tool to get high quality products. The optic system includes high quality color digital cameras scanning the surface of each product. Here the products are categorized by color, size, diameter, texture defects and external defects. Each product quality is calculated combining these parameters according to customer settings.
Internal grading uses the proprietary near infrared (NIR) technology. NIR system special wavelength rays penetrate into product and analyze its chemical properties. The technology does not harm the product and results in the best quality products to be outside, while considering their internal part. A customer can set the parameters grading each product, either by a separate parameter or by combination of few.
Unlike most of its competitors, the company machines are made only of stainless steel so that they can be washed with no risk of rust and maintain food safety. Thanks to its close contact to top scientists at the world-known Volcanic Institute and the Institute of Agricultural Engineering of Israel Ministry of Agriculture, the company is the only one to implement and commercialize their common developed solutions.
The company operates in more than 30 countries around the world. They have 3 working parts (based in Southern California, Mexico and Costa Rica) engaged in installations, service, marketing and customer retention.
