Weighing and packaging machine developed by Blue Team Technology

A weighing and packaging line for soft fruit and blueberries in particular has been developed by Blue Team Technology. "There is nothing similar manufactured in Italy. We created it to meet the needs of a few clients who required specific characteristics," explain managers Fabrizio Franceschini and Ivan Dall'Ara.

The machine dimensions are just 5 x 1.20 metres

Clients needed something to weigh and package fruit precisely without damaging it and that was at the same time compact and versatile. The machine is in fact very small in size as it measures 5 metres in length and 1.20 metres in width.

Fabrizio Franceschini and Ivan Dall'Ara

"The machine can process over 30 types of plastic and cardboard packaging types. The minimum measurement is 70x70x15 mm while the maximum is 180x240x130 mm. It can even process punnets with Clamshel lids."

Loading section

"Retailers require different solutions all the time and each chain has its own formats, so working with a machine that is so versatile means never having to stop to change formats."

Unloading section

Blueberries are loaded in the hopper, which is padded to avoid damaging the produce. Vibration leads the fruit to 8 independent channels and an automatic system weights and packages the product according to what selected on the display.

Even though the machine was designed with blueberries in mind, it can also be used for baby kiwis, cherries and cherry tomatoes. All washable parts, i.e. those that come into contact with the fruit, can be removed without the need for tools.
