These various levels of technique provide solutions for any flower company and yields high returns. Havatec has specialized herself in mechanical solutions combined with in-house software development. The methods of grading are x-ray based techniques, color cameras and infra-red rays. The necessary science is deep rooted within the Havatec personnel, providing the distinctive innovation urge Havatec has become known for. Some of the cutting flowers that are processed on the Havatec concepts are: Chrysanthemum, Sprayrose, Gerbera, Tulip, Alstroemeria, Carnation, Zantedeschia (Calla), Lily and many more.

Quality Buncher 2.0: tulip buncher

The Quality Buncher (2.0) is the perfect solution for smaller and larger tulip growers. An excellent processing speed can be reached without having to rely on the skills of the bunchers. The Quality Buncher (2.0) works simple and efficient with a large capacity. Too short stems are automated de-selected.

TulipStar; automated tulip grading and bunching

The TulipStar has a proven track record when it comes to day to day grading and bunching of tulips. The bunch is compiled directly on the bunching conveyor. Leafs are nonstop held straight by an airstream while the stems are brought together in the bunch.

FloraStar: grading and bunching of various flower sorts

The FloraStar has a grading and bunching capacity of 10.000 alstroemeria’s per hour. The flowers are sorted by length, curve, weight and number of bud’s. X-ray techniques are used since bud’s and stems could be tucked away between leafs.

MagniFica: new grading and bunching machine for various flower sorts

The MagniFica is Havatec’s newest grading and bunching machine and is suited for the use of various sorts of flowers. This machine is based on a clip-and-input system that guides the bunches through an inspection unit. Right after composing the bundle it is cut to length and tied up.

MonoStar; processing of Gerberas

The MonoStar is a gerbera bunching machine specially developed for automated grading and bunching ‘mini’ Gerberas. The machine has a client order controlled effect. Making it possible to change the settings swiftly in order to process the requested orders. MonoStar is developed in several modules, providing a custom built concept for various demands.

MixStar; processing gerberas

Just like the MonoStar, the MixStar is a gerbera bunching machine designed for automated grading and bunching ‘mini’ gerberas. The MixStar grades by color, stem length and flower diameter. The machine can be set in number of stems and variations per bunch. Through the client-order controlled effect, it is possible to change the settings quickly in order to compose the requested orders.

BulbStar; simplicity in automated separation of fusarium infected bulbs

Automated selected tulip bulbs on fusarium infection with BulbStar. Manual labour will be reduced by half through the necessary selection and has a better result. Use the BulbStar to prepare tulip bulbs for export. or implement it in the nursery – in a plant line for instance.

RoyalStar: bunching and insert of Gerberas

RoyalStar is the bunching technique for bunching of Gerbera flowers. This technique offers the opportunity to bundle in bunches of stems of 7 minimum and 25 maximum. The machine itself ensures that the flowers are singulated and further equally spaced processed.

CallaStar; grading and bunching of Callas

CallaStar is the new standard grade and bunch machines for Callas (Zantedeschias). This machine is developed in modules providing solutions for any situation. The callas are measured by grading parameters and dropped in either collecting bins or inserted in bunching stations and further tied.

FlowMaster; the semi automated inserting machine for Gerberas

The FlowMaster represents a new concept inserting machines. Growers are increasingly facing different types of packing for transport. Hence the development of the semi-automated inserting machine. The machine is developed in various modules and has a universal box grip. Thus providing the different type of packaging to be processed in the same production line.

Havatec Debulber: a new debulbing method

The new debulbing machine stands out for good accessibility of the rotating parts. Rotating the de-bulbing technique away from the processing line without loss of the settings. This new de-bulbing method ensures limited breach of stems. Stems can not get jammed and will not miss any jacks or torpedoes.

Waste removal systems; carry away cut-offs and bulb waste

There are several custom built waste removal systems. These are mainly elevators and conveyors for removal the flower cut-offs and bulb waste. These machines are supplied to several sectors. The elevators come in a version with or without pallet crate switch.

Harvesting systems: absolute best connection to your machine

Havatec delivers the transport systems for the flowers. There are conveyor belts, reversal systems to multiple machines and curved conveyors in the harvesting systems. The harvesting systems has its own operating system providing an optimal connection with various machines.

Binder; a matching binder for any machine

The Havatec machines are standard equipped with ARC / Havatec binders. These binders are composed to the Havatec specifications and come in a left and right version. All necessary parts or new binders are deliverable from stock supply. The latest innovation in binders is the extended arm so that also a ‘high’ cover can be bound. The binders can be placed as a stand-alone system or implemented in the production line.
