Title (EN) AUTOMATED HIGH-THROUGHPUT SEED PROCESSING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE TRAITEMENT AUTOMATIQUE DE GRAINES À HAUT RENDEMENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An apparatus and method for automated high-throughput processing seed requests or orders includes an autonomous single seed counter and packager which operates by pre-programmed criteria. Optional features can include a thresher, a spiral separator, and a label applicator. A conveyance path, controlled automatically, can move the seed to appropriate and desired stations during the processing while maintaining segregation from subsequent seed being processed. Validation of the seed request matching the sample requested occurs prior to processing and information about the seed to process or having been processed can be derived and stored for further use.
(FR)L'appareil divulgue un appareil et un procédé de traitement automatique à haut rendement de demandes ou de commandes de graines, comprenant une unité de comptage et de conditionnement de graines individuelles autonome qui fonctionne sur la base de critères préprogrammés. Des caractéristiques optionnelles peuvent comprendre une batteuse, un séparateur hélicoïdal et un applicateur d'étiquettes. Un chemin de transport, qui est commandé de façon automatique, peut déplacer les graines jusqu'à des stations appropriées et souhaitées pendant le traitement tout en maintenant la séparation vis-à-vis des graines suivantes à traiter. La validation de la demande de graines qui coïncide avec l'échantillon demandé est exécutée avant le traitement et des informations relatives aux graines à traiter ou qui ont été traitées peuvent être dérivées et stockées en vue d'une utilisation ultérieure.
