A fully automatic transplanter


The fully automatic transplanter mod Ferrari Futura by Ferrari Costruzioni Meccaniche has been studied to transplant vegetables stored in trays of different sizes.  The machine needs just one operator to feed the transplanter robots with trays. Every robot extracts the seedlings automatically through a system based on cylindrical plungers combined with moving fingers that will pick up the plugs coming out from the tray thanks to the bottom pressure of the plungers. No need to change the traditional tray the customer is used to work with, on the contrary the machine will be adapted accordingly: this is one of the features that make Futura a totally innovative machine. The transplanter carousel is turning in clockmotion (Stop&Go). This specific feature is extremely important to guarantee a constant drop of the plants from the carousel to the shoe. The clockmotion allows to increase the performance per hour, the precision of planting depth and distance in the row. This important feature guarantees a perfect plant timing without the need of doing any adjustment on the planter. Futura is equipped with a self-cleaning kicker in the ploughshare. This device is extremely important to prevent the accumulation of dirt in the shoe. The Futura yield is extremely high: up to 8,000 plants/hour per robot. Any machine can be equipped with multiple robots. This transplanter can work up to 24 h/day – 7 days/week without any yield drop. This transplanting machine can work both on flat ground and raised beds. These features are essential to guarantee a more uniform crop that means quality and competitiveness. The ultimate Ferrari Futura generation is available in a new self-propelled version. The self-propelled version can guarantee: easy manoeuvrability, reduction of dead times, no need for tractor driver. The engine installed on this machine is the Kubota 100 HP, 4 wheel drive, hydrostatic transmission. This kind of machine has been sold especially for processing tomatoes to be largest tomato growers in the world.
