Hans van der Poel Mechanisatie en Machinebouw is a specialist in the field of unstacking and filling flower buckets for cut flowers. One of their popular products is SoloFill, a system that quickly fills buckets with the right amount of water. There is also the more advanced Quickfill system that includes a lift. This ensures that the buckets are elevated to a comfortable working height, along with filling them with the correct amount of water.

This continues the trend of ever-increasing automation and convenience. For round flower bouquets the company offers the AquaMatic, a machine that is infinitely adjustable to be able to unstack buckets with a diameter of 150-310 mm. It is also available in a more advanced version called the AquaMatic ++, which has a capacity of up to 1,200 buckets per hour. For those working with square flower buckets, there is the SquareFill which exists in three versions:

  • SquareFill 100: for the smaller-scale grower who still wants to be able to unstack automatically
  • Squarefill 500: with a 3-meter-long conveyor belt that holds an entire auction cart with buckets
  • SquareFill 500+: includes racks in addition to the conveyor belt

Optionally, these machines can be part of an advanced supply and delivery system.

Kwekerij Waalzicht
A great real-life example of these machines in action is the system that has been operational at lisianthus grower Kwekerij Waalzicht for a year now. The rapid SquareFill 500+ system equips auction buckets, 577 with racks at eight different processing stations at working height. Then the buckets with flowers are moved to a buffer where they can finally be placed on the auction carts from an ergonomically responsible picking height.
