UNITEC innovation has its origin in a strong activity of continuous research that is constantly updated in order to adapt the sorting systems to the new needs that the fruit asks for in order to make them more efficient, faster and more effective in meeting the quality requirements of each customer.
UNITEC solutions allow users to save costs in many wearing and repetitive jobs, because they allow users to work faster and with greater precision. Thanks to the patents that UNITEC has filed over time, packing houses save both directly, thanks to increased speed, and indirectly, by reducing non-conformities resulting from inconsistent quality selection. As a matter of fact, thanks to UNITEC exclusive solutions, selection becomes more accurate, packages more homogeneous and consequently we have less complaints. All this leads to adding more value to the product and to creating greater revenues in addition to the benefits to the credibility of the packing house that uses UNITEC technology for sorting these fruits.
Moreover, UNITEC solutions are perfectly in tune with the demands of sustainability towards industrial processes that are nowadays put forward by the whole civil society. Thanks to the consistent selection of fruit quality, based on quality standards defined according to product destination, UNITEC technologies avoid placing on the market products that would displease the final consumers and that would risk being thrown away at destination due to the manifestation of hidden defects already present at the beginning. Therefore, diverting the unsuitable product in the selection stage, allows users to reduce waste along the entire chain, both in terms of costs for transport, and in terms of product eliminated at destination.
UNIQ Blueberry is one of UNITEC latest innovations for consistent and precise selection of blueberry inner quality without damaging blueberries in any way. Thanks to UNITEC sorting system, producers can select blueberries according to softness and brix degree, in order to respond consistently to different market demands.
Always in view of a strong connection to the emerging needs in different markets, UNITEC has also created an innovative system to solve the problems related to the mechanical harvesting of blueberries: UNI FLY, which intervenes between the harvesting stage and the sorting and selection stage of fruit quality. Thanks to this exclusive solution, the process can be even more automated and made fluid, giving again a real answer to today’s lack of manpower found in many packing houses. At the same time, this solution also represents an answer to the inconveniences related to mechanized harvesting, that is to say the difficulties that occur when a product is contaminated by leaves or foreign bodies that UNI FLY can eliminate before they can enter the sorting line. All this has considerably improved the efficiency of the entire line, thus increasing its precision and effectiveness.
