MAF Roda Agrobotic’s value proposal concentrates on offering custom technological solutions for their clients. Complete, turnkey projects that range from de-palletisation to palletisation and final strapping, passing through treatment systems, external and internal quality classification or preparation.

The multinational continues committing constant investment in R&D. This is the driving force to ensure it is always at the forefront and to be able to offer its clients solutions that improve efficiency and productivity in fruit and vegetable preparation plants.

“This year we are presenting three important new developments in automation, robotics and quality classification that mean a great qualitative leap in our catalogue of technological solutions,” comments Christophe Blanc, the General Manager of the Group. “In the first place and always aimed at aiding and making everyday work easier for our clients, we have developed a new version of the quality analysis software Globalscan 7. With this new software, operators will be able to adjust the production line in a much quicker and more intuitive way. Clients will be much more independent in this process, and they will gain efficiency and productivity. During the trade fair, clients will be able to see this new functionality in its Beta version.”

Another important pillar is the range of automatic preparation machinery that covers all aspects from bulk filling to boxing and filling of baskets or small formats. Another of the important new developments is the automatic boxing robot Fast Pack, for peaches and nectarines. Boxing robots are a leap forward in box automation aimed at fruit. Particularly relevant for products such as apples, with which we have been working for several years now and which now we are extending to peaches and nectarines.”

Warehouses may be completely automated now with the management of the movement of boxes and pallets using AGVs. “These autonomous vehicles are specially designed for fruit and vegetable preparation centres; therefore, they provide a solution for the sector’s specific needs,” Blanc affirms.
