Cresses and microgreens
Partially automated or fully automatic rolling bench systems
Viable from 1000m2 and upwards
Countless projects delivered worldwide
For the last few decades, cress and micro-greens growers worldwide have been discovering the many advantages of growing their crops on rolling bench systems.
Logiqs rolling bench systems are recognised worldwide because of our innovative automation solutions, flexible and modular designs, as well as for our industry leading control and registration software: Dat-A-Control.
All our benching systems are designed to offer maximum flexibility for the customers short-term and long-term needs.
So even layouts designed for manual use, can be later fitted with state of the art automation solutions without requiring large scale modifications.
- space utilisation of up to 90% of total greenhouse surface
- less space required for internal transport of plants
- better working environment for greenhouse workers
- efficient work area (spacing, order picking, irrigation,Plant Phenotyping, etc)
- Improved air-flow under the benches
- more efficient use of water and nutrients;
- makes multiple heating-cooling zones for the various stages in the plants life easier to manage;
- lowers labor costs for internal transport of plants while increasing logistical capacity;
- increases greenhouse hygiene and lowers improves product consistency.
The 2D-Shuttle is a unique greenhouse automation solution, which is designed and built by Logiqs. This system is unmatched in its modular design, that allows for a flexible and scalable system.
The 2D-Shuttle is the semi-autonomous vehicle that rides underneath the rolling benches, using the heating pipes as rails, and in doing so, can automate large greenhouse surfaces.
The A-Track transport lines ensure bench movements between rows and connect the growing area to the work area.
Each individual A-Track Transport Line section is powered by just one drive unit, using two speeds: a fast one for normal bench movements and a slow one for precise positioning of the bench on the lifting frame.
When an A-Track transport line is connected with an isle of rolling benches, it’s also fitted with a pneumatic lifting frame for the bench handoff between transport line and 2D-Shuttle.
Throughout its history, Logiqs has developed various solutions for automatic transport of containers using Automatic Transport Carts, for the transport of one or multiple rolling benches simultaneously.
These automated carts can be mounted either on the central concrete path in the middle of your greenhouse or on the side-wall of the greenhouse.
The Overhead and 3D (X/Y) Cranes produced by Logiqs streamline the transport of both empty and full plant containers and have been successfully implemented in countless greenhouses and plant nurseries throughout the world.
Our Overhead Cranes have lightweight designs that don’t create high forces on the greenhouse structure while at the same time being highly durable and reliable.
Our lifts are custom made for the specific size of benches used by the vertical farm as well as if regards to the building height.
The lifts are produced using only the highest grade components, they use four independent electromechanical actuators for maximum stability and in order the evenly distribute forces.
Automated irrigation, on individual bench level, finally made possible by our Automatic Irrigation Booms and Dat-A-Control.
The Automatic Irrigation Booms/gantries from Logiqs are the most versatile all in one irrigation solution available today.
Available with a full software integration using Dat-A-Control, our Automatic Irrigation Booms allow growers to considerably reduce labor costs, improve product quality and conserve both water and feeds.
We’ve delivered hundreds of fully automated rolling bench systems worldwide and worked with some of the worlds most successful growers of potted plants, orchids, young plants, bulb flowers, small trees, cut flowers, cress/microgreens and vegetables.
Well maintained systems installed by us more than 30 years ago are still in operation today!
