Bespoke conveyor system and gantries

NPEC-Kas-V4 - low res

SMO, the Belgian machine builder, is in charge of installing the bespoke conveyor system and two gantries to make optimal use of the NPEC greenhouse facilities. These will be based on the SMO-manufactured WIWAM range of high-throughput phenotyping machines. The gantries will be fitted into two of the NPEC greenhouse compartments and in the other two conveyor systems will be installed with measurement area with the imaging cabinets.

SMO is specialized in custom-made solutions in close cooperation with the customer. The WIWAM framework ensures smooth integration of a whole set of sensors to provide the operators with a unified interface. SMO will integrate different imaging sensors in a setup where most parameters regarding mechanical construction and facilities have been predetermined.

By early 2021 the NPEC Greenhouse will be ready for large scale research and experiments!
