It was in the year 2000 that Havatec started with the development of machines for the mushroom sector. Not long after that Havatec developed an advanced machine for the grading and bunching of flower bulbs using X-ray techniques. As from 2003, Havatec has an extensive range of machines for automated grading and bunching of flowers, for packaging flowers in boxes. Since then over 400 machines were internationally installed at numerous leading flower companies. Havatec became the leading supplier for the flower sector, always ahead in technique but ever with the key values in mind that go along with mechanization in agriculture: ‘simple, reliable and affordable’.
That is what we call ‘HIGH-TEC SIMPLICITY’. In other words, making use of high performance techniques in combination with the simplicity of a machine that just needs to operate for 16 hours a day without malfunctioning.
Machines for food
Out of the extensive technology portfolio, Havatec started the development of several machines for the food sector in 2009. We have developed a 3D X-ray scanner for cheese and the development of several techniques for growing and wrapping of various products.
X-ray grading camera specialization
Havatec has specialized herself in X-ray and camera grading techniques. Apart from the implementation of these techniques, Havatec has developed her own X-ray Line Scan Camera. Which makes Havatec ahead of the 3D X-ray development for the inspection of various products.
