Remolite, a Semi-automatic Inter-row Weeder to Weeding Crops
The machine is equipped with a revolutionary interface applied between the tractor and the farm equipment that can guarantee a high working speed (up to 15 km/h). Its integrated software allows an incredible weeding precision, ensuring to the operator the best comfort.
Because of these features, Remolite is an essential hoe to use both in organic and conventional crops such as brassicas, celery, tomato, corn, soya bean and tobacco.
Many other crops can be treated with this technology as well.
- Camera double lenses
- Data setting terminal
- Visual control unit
- Hydraulic shifter
- Weeding element on parallelogram with calibrated springs
- Goose feet hoe
- Rotating fingers (variable diameter and hardness)
- Hydraulic shifter with a vision system
- Back discs
- Spring tine harrow
The semi-automatic inter-row weeder has a double-lens optical camera that can be installed either on the frame behind the tractor (between the gauge wheels) or the outer part of the structure. So the camera can detect images coming either from a single line of plants or from multiple lines.
To allow the machine to operate even when there is a high presence of weeds in the ground, the wide reading angle of the camera is appropiate for numerous rows.
The information processed by the vision system is used to control the hydraulic side-shifting frame. As a result, the hoes of the machine are as close as possible to the crop. On request, an operator sitting on the top of the machine and replacing the function of the camera can control the side-shifting frame.
Each weeding element mounted on the frame is equipped with a parallel linkage mounting bearings to guarantee stability and precision.
On the other hand, flexible rubber wheels control the working depth.
The weeding teeth are installed on calibrated springs and finish with a goose feet hoe.
To weed as close as possible to the plant, this semi-automatic inter-row weeder has rotating rubber fingers mounted on a support that starts from the frame. Those fingers have different sizes according to the row spacing.
The hardness of the rubber can change according to the type of soil the machine has to weed (loose, heavy, etc.). And the frames can be either fixed or foldable, depending on the width.
