Mini-grader with interchangeable weighing cups for fruits such as apricots, apples, peaches, plums, citrus, kiwis, melons.
For a cup grader to be efficient, the weighing cups have to have the right size for the fruits to be graded: Thus cups suitable for apricots will not be suitable for apples and other fruits of the same size.
SETOP have solved this problem by designing a system of removable crowns for different fruit sizes.

PICOLLINE allows processing fruits of any size. Changes between batches are very quick thanks to the interchangeable cups, and batches are always processed at maximum capacity and maximum rate.
PICOLLINE can weigh production batches at a rate of up to 5 fruits per second, i.e. 18,000 fruits per hour, while maintaining the great precision of ± 2% whatever the rate.
PICOLLINE is fitted with a V-shaped fruit pre-aligner featuring belts moving at two different speeds: the fruits being aligned before they reach the cups, those cups are always filled, and filled with only one fruit.
The feeding speed and the speed of the cups are adjustable over an electric variator.
PICOLLINE’s reception trays provide a 5.5 m wide working space, allowing 5 to 6 persons to work side-by-side comfortably.
Each packing station is fitted with an emptying flap, an adjustable retractable crate support, and, optionally, a working desk.
