Title
(EN) MECHANICAL COLLECTION OF HARVESTED TREE-FRUIT
(FR) RAMASSAGE MECANISE DE FRUITS DE VERGER RECOLTES
Abstract
(EN)
A method and a system (1) for collection of harvested tree-fruit has a collection device (26) mounted on a hauled cart (C). For fruit collection, two arms (FA, RA) are extended under the foliage of a tree (T), to spread an apron hung between them, in a fruit receiving position (27). After harvesting is completed, and the apron (A) contains the harvested fruit, the arms draw the apron from under the tree and swing to stop in a fruit discharge position (51), where fruit is discharged by gravity into the open top opening (OP) of the cart C. Then, the arms are returned from the discharge position to the fruit receiving position (27).

L'invention concerne un procédé et un système (1) de ramassage de fruits de verger récoltés. Le système décrit dans cette invention comprend un dispositif de ramassage (26) monté sur un chariot attelé (C). Pour permettre le ramassage des fruits, deux bras (FA, RA) sont déployés sous le feuillage d'un arbre (T), de manière à étendre une bâche suspendue auxdits bras, dans une position (27) permettant la réception des fruits. Une fois que la récolte est achevée et que la bâche (A) contient les fruits récoltés, les bras tirent la bâche qui se trouve sous l'arbre et la basculent jusqu'à l'arrêt dans une position (51) permettant le déchargement des fruits, lesquels fruits sont déchargés par gravité dans la zone de toit ouvert (OP) du chariot (C). Ensuite, les bras sont replacés dans la position (27) de réception des fruits.
