SmartTransfer is the latest hatchery innovation from Pas Reform: an ergonomically designed, fully automated setter trolley loader that enables a single operator to safely transfer all 32 trays from a farm trolley to the setter trolley simultaneously, in less than two minutes.
The new system is the first application to take advantage of recently acquired subsidiary LAN’s expertise in custom-made handling systems. Unlike other systems, the SmartTransfer™ setter trolley loader saves time and manpower with a simple, ingenious push mechanism that transfers every tray in a trolley simultaneously. A smooth, gliding action protects fertile hatching eggs from any sudden movements or shocks, to prevent hairline cracks or other damage to the eggs.
Easy to operate, SmartTransfer™ is designed for operator comfort during this normally highly repetitive task. A filled farm trolley is pushed into the SmartTransfer™ trolley loader and locked into position. With the door closed, the operator sets SmartTransfer’s electronically operated pusher into action, transferring all the trayed eggs onto a tray collector simultaneously.
The operator then opens the door and replaces the farm trolley with a setter trolley. Tray collector guides adjust automatically to the correct pitch for the setter trolley – and all the filled trays are pushed into the setter trolley at the same time. The whole process is completed in under two minutes.
With a footprint of just 1860 x 2775mm, SmartTransfer™ is constructed from easy-to-clean stainless steel and requires minimal maintenance.
