Artechno offers customization in Harvesting systems!


The harvesting line is a complete system for harvesting hydroponically grown crops, and cleaning, washing and transporting floats. Made for a multitude of crops and floats, we design and build our systems to function automatically and as efficient as possible.

In our vision, for a system to be truly efficient it needs to have an optimal balance between human work and automation. We enjoy working together with our customers to find that balance and provide solutions that take both the human and financial side into account. Quality of the harvested crop and synergy between machines take a leading role in our work.

In addition to a customized system, we can also supply individual machines that are optimized to work with the specific conditions present at your location.

Verwerkingssyteem Harvester

Harvester LG 300

The harvester separates crops from the floats by automatically cutting them off at the right height with a bandsaw and transporting the freshly cut crops to their end destination. The floats/benches continue their journey in the process, so they can be cleaned and re-used. System can be configured with different setups, such as crop recognition, automatic cutting height adjustment, waste disposal and crop transport.

Harvester benefits:

  • Low labor - Fully automatic process
  • Consistent quality - The harvester always cuts the way you want it to
  • Reliable output - A fixed output makes it easy to precisely plan harvesting
  • High Capacity  - 300 - 400+ floats/benches per hour

  • Reliable output - A fixed output makes it easy to precisely plan harvesting
  • High Capacity  - 100 - 200+ floats/benches per hour

Verwerkingssyteem Cleaner

Float/tray Washer 300

After harvesting there are still residual plant and substrate remains left on the floats. In order to properly clean these floats, they must first be stripped of all coarse dirt, before they are washed. The cleaner thoroughly cleans by scraping, shaking and spraying, afterwards the waste is automatically disposed of. There are several versions available to accommodate different types of floats.

Cleaner benefits:

  • Low labor costs - Fully automatic and easy to clean
  • Flexible - The cleaner can be configured for any type of float/tray/bench
  • High Capacity - 400+ /floats/trays/benches per hour

Verwerkingssyteem Tray handling

Float/Tray handler

The tray handler stacks and unstacks floats and moves them into a buffer, by automating this process labour expenses are lowered. The stacked floats can be transported to a storage space or directly re-used in the growth process.

Tray handler benefits:

  • No labor costs - Fully automatic process
