The project:

A few highlights of the automated benching system we delivered are as follows:

  • An Automated Transport Vehicle working in conjunction with our 1st generation Shuttles
  • 100 Degree Rolling bench Cleaner and the inherent logistics system for feeding the dirty benches and for retrieving the clean ones;
  • Automated Irrigation booms/gantries with both spaying capacity and ebb and flood capabilities;

Software

The entire rolling bench system is controlled using our industry leading control and registration software Dat-A-Control.

Besides the control of benches and machines, Dat-A-Control also gives the grower full access to the registration database for plant movements and undergone production processes, making the management of the nursery more efficient.

After Sales Services

Logiqs has its own experienced installation and service team based in the Netherlands, but also collaborates with reliable service engineer teams in several countries so as to prevent unnecessary installation or maintenance costs.

Our customers can always rely on prompt and efficient attention for routine maintenance, breakdown or emergency situations.

Routine preventative maintenance can be tailored to the customer’s choice, with service intervals to suit the specific needs of the logistical system.
