The 1400 Drum Seeding Line is a top of the range high capacity drum seed line that runs at up to 1200 trays per hour with high seeding precision in terms of singulation as well as placement, even with difficult species.
-RMS tray filler which is shown above and was the limiting factor in running at 1200 trays per hour until the button belt and magic fingers were developed which allow 1200 trays to be filled to a high standard and with optional compaction.
-The trays can be fed into the tray filler manually or destacked automatically even with thermoformed trays or nesting hard plastic trays.
-After being filled on the RMS the tray passes onto the seeding unit where it is dibbled and seeded.
-The seeding unit had the features seen on the TO53R with aluminium drums with stainless steel inserts, sideways moving agitated hopper, hammers to help remove doubles but also has other special features.
-The blow off manifold is very special with 12 blow off holes per hole in the drum which wobbles the seeds back and forward six times as the seed passes by the holes removing most doubles. This manifold can be individually adjusted sideways and vertically for each row and has an individual air supply.
-There is also a blow off manifold inside the drum which eliminates the vacuum and applies a small positive pressure to remove seed from the drum.
-Next another manifold applies a high pressure cleaning blast before going up into the seed hopper once more.
-A pause option is available so the drum stops from full speed in order to check seeding accuracy and adjust.
Extra tips are available.
-This line is modular so you can have as much or as little as you need.
