Agriculture

Manufacturers in the agriculture industry have come to expect the best performing robotic solutions available globally.

Mexx Engineering is one of the few robotics and automation companies in Australia. We are known for designing and manufacturing complete lines that are built to handle a range of functions from upstream processing, sorting and packing through to the end of line palletisation. 

Mexx Engineering can streamline the agriculture industry using innovative and versatile systems such as:

Our top-of-the-line robotic systems can accelerate and streamline all these processes through:

The implementation of robotic automation within the agricultre industry offers incredible potential for improved safety, quality and productivity by enhancing process monitoring and control.

Automation is the new edge in farming, both in Australia and overseas, and it is not just in response to a diminishing number of farmers or an exploding escalation in population.

The growing global community and swinging trade guidelines affect the pricing, supply chain, and distribution of food products. In the meantime, consumers first choices, especially in western countries, are changing more toward organic and sustainably produced foods and products that require more consideration, data, and labour.

With the demand for produce and meat at a higher regard than ever before, businesses are converting to automation to help speed up their applications. There is an abundance of reasons that automation makes sense for the world of agriculture. With benefits varying from economic to environmental, implementing automated systems in Australian farms could advance the industry forward in an awe-inspiring way.

Conveyor System

The Conveyor System controls product delivery from point A to point B with the use of various conveyor chain materials. Its guide rail system is fully adjustable to ensure continuous movement of the product around a curve.

KEY FEATURES OF THE CONVEYOR SYSTEM:

  • Aluminium or Stainless conveyor system
  • Includes automatic self-centring guide rail adjusters
  • Integrated transfers from upstream conveyors
  • Integrated transfers to downstream conveyors
  • High-speed with virtually no back-pressure and product gaps
  • Accumulation system
  • Full system control
  • System safety interlocked and guarded as per Australian and New Zealand Standards

Vision System

The Vision System checks the orientation and quality of a product. It inspects the product for damage and determines how to handle it. A dedicated feeding system that automatically spaces the product can be added as an option.

KEY FEATURES OF THE VISION SYSTEM:

  • 5” touch screen for operation and production information
  • 20” Display and roller trackball for camera system control and setup
  • Light tower for status indication
  • Eject products using air blast
  • PLC Controlled - Independent floor mounted frame for stability
  • Central control via HMI
  • System safety interlocked and guarded as per Australian and New Zealand Standards
