Study to review automation of banana de-handing

This project is examining whether it is feasible to automate de-handing of bananas. The research team will conduct a time and motion study of banana processing in an operational processing facility and produce a feasibility report into the challenges and immediate opportunities around integrating robotics into de-handing.

Use of a purge sensor to improve performance and reduce the need for supervision of batch centrifugals

Batch centrifugals that operate like a spinning washing machine are used widely to separate raw sugar crystals from the mother molasses. This project will trial a Danish-made sensor to show when and how long to add wash water to the batch centrifugal, to purify the raw sugar crystals - a job that is usually done by a worker at the sugar mill.
