Automated systems will help the Chinese dragon fruit industry in Nanning standardize

Reemoon introduces automated selection line for dragon fruit

Dragon fruit brightens up many a supermarket in China during the summer months. Dragon fruit usually enters the market in July. The unique shape and the bright color attract the attention of consumers as they browse through the fruit section. Furthermore, dragon fruit is rich in nutrients and therefore popular with many consumers. The dragon fruit market has great prospects.

Dragon fruit originally comes from regions close to the equator in the Western hemisphere, in the tropical regions of Central America for example. The fruit was later introduced to China and is now cultivated in Hainan, Guangxi, Guangdong, Fujian, and Yunnan. The largest dragon fruit production area in China is in Nanning, Guangxi. Its overall surface area is around 15,000 hectares. The dragon fruit industry in Nanning rapidly developed in the last few years. However, the selection of dragon fruit was always done by hand, which is a process that costs a lot of labor and a lot of fruit is wasted. Furthermore, this method can not guarantee certain uniform standards. This has always held back the development of the dragon fruit industry. Nanning therefore decided to purchase a fully automated selection line that was developed and produced by Reemoon in Jiangxi. This automated selection line will help establish the Nanning dragon fruit brand, and transform the dragon fruit industry into a large-scale, specialized, and standardized industry. The automated system will replace the inefficient and expensive manual selection process.

The Reemoon automated dragon fruit selection line pays attention to outward marks such as black spots or damage. The selection line is custom-made specifically for the conditions in the Nanning dragon fruit industry. The selection line is not the same as other selection lines in other production areas. The selection line has seven significant stages. The fruit is washed, disinfected, and cleaned with high-pressure equipment. Next, the fruit is treated to preserve freshness and then air-dried. Finally, the fruit goes through the selection process and is then delivered in a basket. The selection line operates on a new concept. The individual fruit is treated with care at every stage of the process to minimize damage. The actual selection is done with an AI system that accurately categorizes the fruit. The selection line has multiple conveyor belts operating in parallel. This system increases efficiency, but also guarantees stable product quality.

This is the time of the year when the harvest season of dragon fruit has just started. The Reemoon automated selection line has arrived just in time for an excellent year. The selection line will help the Nanning dragon fruit industry achieve a highly mechanized, standardized, and meticulous post-harvest selection process. This selection line will greatly improve the standards for product quality in the Nanning dragon fruit industry. In addition, the selection line will improve the efficiency of the selection process and add value to the products.
