Martin Stolze installs discharge conveyor at Dutch mini gerbera grower

"More efficient quality control with new discharge conveyor"

At two locations in De Lier, the Netherlands, Van Veen Gerbera grows large volumes of mini gerberas. To ensure a high quality product, they recently invested in a discharge conveyor to improve the quality control process.

Martin Stolze has installed a discharge conveyor to remove gerberas that don’t meet the desired quality. The discharge conveyor comes by 5 work stations and ensures a more efficient process as the work does not have to be interrupted by emptying the containers. 

The 16-meter-long conveyor belt is slightly off the ground, high enough to dump onto the next conveyor belt, the supply belt. The supply belt rises at an angle to a height of 1 meter and brings the gerberas to the side where the route connects to a screw.

Pim Ammerlaan of Van Veen Gerbera: “The conveyor belts do exactly what we ask of them, so that's great! Quality has not been cut back, you can see that it’s robust and I appreciate that.”
