NECTRA has developed an award-winning innovation (at Eurotier 2021) called "SMART" for hatching egg REFILLING.
Rolling the eggs is the way hatching eggs get processed today. Currently hatching eggs collected from Farms can only be collected by being rolled over on belt conveying System. The eggs from different source are all rolling on the same conveyor until they get processed, separated by weighed, and packed small end down (air chamber up) into setter trays to be incubated.
In very large companies, with large number of farms (often in Asia but not only) it is preferred to process all the eggs in a processing center where eggs from various farms are brought on egg trays, unloaded onto a conveyor and start rolling to be processed.
This collection system poses several inconveniences due to the fact that:
This technology allows empty egg position randomly shared within a tray to be filled up automatically at high speed and in one single deposit regardless of how many eggs need to be refilled and regardless of their random repartition. Therefore, EGG CAN BE TRANSFERRED from any type of farm egg trays into any other type of incubation trays in a fast manners regardless of whether the two trays match of not.
NECTRA develops, designs, manufactures and supplies a complete range of robust and innovative industrial equipment for hatchery automation and pharmaceutical laboratories producing egg based vaccines. We also offer complete solutions for specific or turnkey projects adapted to all incubator suppliers.
