Hotraco has launched a new system to aid the automatic collection of eggs. The Fortica CEC Controller is able to manage the egg flow in a whole farm with multiple barns.
Hortaco said the system was able to manage several components in the egg flow and collection system, automating operations and simplifying the overall process. This is done through the continuous digital exchange of information that allows to react faster to the changing conditions of the layer barn.
Multiple egg belts communicate with each other to ensure a constant supply of eggs. The system knows the number of eggs per belt and automatically adjusts their speed to match collection needs and the packing capacity, as well automatically stopping and resuming processes when necessary.
