"The talks at Interaspa Praxis in Wenzendorf confirmed the trend that is currently visible within the asparagus branch, going in the direction of 'direct marketing'. The high demands that are put on peeling quality, optimal capacity utilization in the area of processing as well as personnel optimization are very important to our customers," says Jens Frommann, CEO of Hepro LLC. "And we can offer optimal solutions there."

Due to the vertical peeling principles and the pulsed speed, the Hepro-1800 proves to be the ideal peeling machine on the Hepro stand of Interaspa Praxis for 2020. "Customers who have previously peeled with the classic HSM-180 and who now want to take the next step; they will choose the Hepro 1800 for a variety of reasons. Thanks to this machine, up to two people are saved compared to the previous peeling machine, as human intervention in peeling and quality control is eliminated," says Ellen Reinhold (Hepro Sales). "Anyone who has seen a perfectly peeled asparagus coming from this machine, will realise that this machine is indispensable for his farm. And the work is fun with the Hepro 1800. A quick change between three individual peeling pressure pre-settings is possible via the touch display. Thanks to the synchronized speed and the special construction by means of a curved belt, a capacity of 2,400 stems/hour can be achieved, and all this with just one person."
Peeling the asparagus on site is an important part of the service of any modern farm shop.
As a perfect complement to the Hepro 1800 is the diamond-piece cutter (RSS), which was also part of the Hepro product range at the Interaspa Praxis. Various size classes of peeled white or unpeeled green asparagus can be cut in no time, resulting in 25 mm long, appetizing pieces of rhomboid asparagus for catering or the farm shop.

"It is important to us to find the right peeling machine for each of our customers. Together, we look at all the requirements, so we can offer the appropriate solution, taking into account the size of the acreage, the different varieties (and sizes), the personnel situation and the individual financing options. A 'rendezvous' like Interaspa Praxis enables us to personally work out different solutions with our customers in a pleasant atmosphere," says Mareen Protte (Hepro Distribution). "The asparagus season is in sight, but it is still far enough away to choose the right machine!"
