ZTI Smart Machines
ZTI focuses nationally and internationally primarily on the flower, vegetable and fruit-processing industry. Smart innovations in industrial processes allow us to make manual repetitive work easier, safer, more sustainable and more efficient. But we are active in other sectors, for example in the seed industry.
Special solutions seed industry; Sachet Emptying Machine
There is a great demand for advanced machines in the seed processing sector. Recently ZTI has developed a machine for opening and emptying seed sachets; the Sachet Emptying Machine. The machines picks up the sachets, carefully slits them open and shakes out all of the content. All conditions are taken into account. For example, dust-free processing and preventing pollution with other seeds. The result is a machine that handles the product carefully by opening the sachet (or bag) at the correct position. The seed is not bruised or cut in half and therefore no loss.
Vision and robotics; pick and place unit for small seeds
The possibilities in vision and robotics are constantly increasing. Techniques are getting smarter and are making things possible that were beyond our dreams. On Seeds Meets Technology we demonstrate our pick and place robot for the littlest seeds. Our vision software detects the seeds from other materials like dirt, a little insect or a damaged one. The robot carefully picks up the good seeds and places it in the right position on a petri dish.
Come and visit us at booth 38, right at the entrance, and we will demonstrate how it’s done. We are always interested in your challenges. Maybe we can be of help.
Just a little more about us….
Safety, sustainability, yield, simplicity and ease
Those are our starting points. Corporate social responsibility is not just a growing trend; it is also a normal part of today’s sustainable business practice. We make our contribution both directly and indirectly. For instance by developing machines that relieve people of repetitive, monotonous work. But also by giving proper consideration to sustainable use of raw materials. In other words a key principle is achieving as high a yield as possible, while creating as little waste as possible.
By listening carefully and thinking creatively together with customers, we can come up with smart and unique solutions. The essence of the solution can often be found in its simplicity. Lean and mean. Our smart machines do more with less. Robotics and vision technology are also making it technically feasible to delegate decisions to machines. So, not just a smart solution; the machines themselves are also becoming increasingly smarter.
The ZTI engineers use the newest software systems to create their designs. At the stage of the first sketches, you will already have a clear digital picture of the idea. In addition to this modern ‘drawing board’, we also have our own workshop. Drawing room, mechanics and electronic work seamless together. This synergy forms the basis for creating technical solutions that fully meet your needs and desires.
ZTI is located in Tuitjenhorn. Quiet near the Seed Valley area.
