Suitable for small seeds such as carrot, tomato, brassica or pepper seeds, with accurate 100-seed counts for germination tests and lab use.
Seed counting accuracy can have a significant impact on profitability throughout the seed value chain. For example, the industry practice of overfilling by 3-5% in order to ensure minimum quantities can cost a seed manufacturer or distributor hundreds of thousands of dollars of lost revenue each year.
DATA has revolutionized the seed industry by replacing inefficient, costly weight- and volume-based seed processing procedures with an advanced, vision-based bulk counting technology that provides unmatched speed and accuracy, without compromising either.
Using DATA’s proprietary 360° image processing ICI technology, seeds are counted in real-time as they free-fall vertically through the detection unit at a uniform rate. Count accuracy levels of 100% are achieved in the same timeframe as seed weighing or volumetric methodologies.
Increase revenue and profits by eliminating the overfilled items often added free of charge when measuring by weight or volume.
Each DATA system is designed to count any quantity of seeds, regardless of its size and shape, with simple, quick configuration adjustments.
Stored count and packaging data is easily retrieved by third-party process and inventory management systems.
Increase throughput and shorten response times from order to delivery with highly efficient counting & packaging processes.
DATA’s vision-based systems can process very large quantities of seeds with great precision, alerting to size/shape deviations that may be identified during the process.
Benchtop models provide automatic, error-free seed counting for field trials, from setup to collection.
