Technology Paving the Way for the Future of Ethical Meat Production

Is it possible for technology to make meat production sustainable, healthy and ethical? Demand for meat is expected to rise in the years and decades ahead, driven by economic and population growth.

How Urban Agriculture Improves Produce Shelf Life

If you've ever had a home garden, you've probably noticed that the fruits and vegetables you grow seem to last a lot longer than the ones you buy at the grocery store. Likewise, produce from farmers' markets tends to last a lot longer. What causes this discrepancy?

Sustainable Manufacturing: Three UK Companies Leading the Way

The nation has seen a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions since 1990. However, despite the Ten Point Plan, there is still a long way to go if the United Kingdom is to achieve net zero by 2050. Thankfully, companies in the manufacturing industry are combatting the climate crisis.

How to increase your efficiency with Machine Vision

Today's agriculture is facing an increasing number of challenges - high production and labor cost despite the lack of skilled workers is only one out of many. To face these challenges, machine vision has become an integral part of many applications used in agriculture.

IGS to deliver vertical farming solution supporting first solar-powered commercial scale farm in Perth, Australia

The four-tower industrial scale farm will be the centrepiece of the site. It will generate 120 tonnes of produce per annum when it is fully operational next year - including lettuce, spinach, kale and basil, as well as the indigenous crops.

Russian Farm Explores Use of XAG Agricultural Drones to Boost Rice Yield

In the South of Russia, XAG's agricultural drone has been introduced to the full cycle of rice cultivation. It brings new hope to farmers as the use of drone demonstrates the potential to reduce the cost of rice production.

The Next Generation of Agricultural Robots

We are moving to a world where robots need to make intelligent decisions about what to do based on what they see. Hence the need for machine learning, vision and AI.

Fluence Announces Strawberry Research Results, Revealing Higher Yields and Better Plant Quality Under Broad-Spectrum Lighting Strategies

Overall, during the winter flush, spectra that included a fraction of far-red saw increased performance across all categories. However, the white spectrum with a fraction of far-red recorded the best performance across categories.

Robot Solution for Automating the Lettuce Harvest

The lettuce's outer, or 'wrapper', leaves will be mechanically removed to expose the stem. Machine vision and artificial intelligence are then used to identify a precise cut point on the stem to neatly separate the head of lettuce.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
