The FERRARI FUTURA TWIN is a fully automated transplanter that can work with vegetables stored in trays of different sizes and materials (hard plastic, foam, disposable). The machine works by itself (only one operator is required to feed the transplanter robots with trays).
Every robot extracts the seedlings using a technology based on cylindrical plungers combined with moving fingers. There is no need to use a specific tray to run FUTURA, the machine will be adapted to the tray selected by the user: this is one of the features that makes the Ferrari automated planter a very innovative and versatile machine.
