AU: Nursery installs picking system with five conveyor belts

Mayer has successfully installed a project at Blackall Range Nurseries in Australia. This picking system consists of five Mayer conveyor belts, each 8m long and 300mm wide. After the mature plants are brought back from the field with a forklift, the pots are cleaned and separated using the conveyor system before delivery to the customer. In this way, they can be easily sorted and grouped for the respective truckloads or market deliveries.

Blackall Range Nurseries is a family-owned and operated wholesale nursery in Australia established in 1990. It supplies the highest quality plants to retail and wholesale nurseries, consignment stores, and the landscaping industry. The farm is located on 83 acres at the top of the Blackall Range, 1 ½ hours north of Brisbane. The unique climate at an elevation of about 300m above sea level ensures that a wide range of trees, shrubs, and grasses through to tropical plants can be grown. Thanks to their own trucks, they deliver weekly to Queensland, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and to all regional areas. Blackall Range Nurseries has primarily focused on the production of 140mm to 1.2m tall plants. The acquisition of an additional 53 hectares in late 2017 has allowed them to consistently supply their customers with an expanded range of varieties and grow larger plants and volumes.
