Efficiency and Automation in Wool Harvesting
Labour is a significant cost in shearing, classing and wool handling. There are many activites in the wool zones where labour efficiencies can be made.
This investment uses modern sensors, industrial controls and engineering developments to design, build, and test components of a semi-autonomous wool handling system from the classing table through to baling including:
Automated inspection for fleece contamination
Optical inspection for automatic wool classification
Automated sorting and baling
