The new Ellepot machine FlexAIR produce pots with high air content, which gives you a softer pots for easier sticking as well as extremely optimized conditions for strong, natural, and fibrous root growth.
The FlexAIR provides great value with an integrated production line and a range of other top benefits;
⋅ Up to 20 % more AIR in the pots
⋅ Significant savings on soil/substrate
⋅ Super-fast sticking
⋅Extremely optimized root growth
With up to 22 pipes and an impressive capacity of up to 48,000 pots per hour, the new FlexAIR technology gives growers full control, automation and high flexibility.
Unique and more gentle handling of pots.
⋅ Produce softer and more loosely filled pots.
⋅ Innovative servo-knife system.
⋅ Flexibility and top-class user-friendliness.
⋅ Fully automatic and integrated robot sticking line.
Softer and more loosely filled Ellepots.
⋅ Produce pots with up to 20% higher air content.
⋅ Savings on soil with up to 20%.
⋅ Optimizes the microclimate around the roots.
⋅ Healthier, faster and uniform rooting.
⋅ Better and higher quality plants.
⋅ Promotes wet and dry cycles.
⋅ Shorter growing cycles.
Despite its delicate structure, the Ellepot is kept intact, allowing for a faster and easier sticking of cuttings or fragile seedlings.
⋅ Great advantage for weak and soft cuttings.
⋅ Up to 20% faster and easier sticking.
⋅ No need to fix sticking after robot sticking.
Benefits with innovative servo-knife.
⋅ Faster movement of knife = higher machine capacity.
⋅ Clean and precise knife movement control.
⋅ Option for step cut function = Improved cut quality for big pot diameter sizes or rough peat mix.
User-friendly touchscreen guides user through each option.
⋅ Help functions and layout overviews on-screen for easy operation.
⋅ Create and save individual production recipes: Machine settings, softness of pots (Vacuum unit), tray filling patterns and tray setup.
⋅ Production Management: Production statistics and number of pots produced.
⋅ High flexibility on tray filling patterns.
⋅ Helps optimization of greenhouse space utilization.
⋅ Flexibility in planting density - free choice of plant number per m2 with the same size Ellepot.
⋅ Ideal for spacing of plants.
Benefits of cleaner trays:
⋅ Clean tray cells – no dust or dirt around the pot.
⋅ Clean tray cells allow better side air pruning using AIRtrays
⋅ Better root aeration and drainage.
⋅ Air circulation – microclimate with air-pruning creates more secondary roots.
⋅ Drainage performance – small distance between tray wall and paper promotes wet/dry cycles in connection with air-circulation.
= Better field establishment and end-result.
