The start of table grape harvesting operations is getting closer, so companies are getting organized to face the campaign and improve the working conditions of employees.
"After the great success of last year, orders are already coming in. All agricultural entrepreneurs in fact want their collaborators to work in comfortable conditions without strain. The Karmen scales, designed for packaging directly at the vineyard, are lightweight and convenient yet sturdy, reliable and precise also on uneven ground. In addition, they can be hooked to all types of support," explains Giuseppe Rescina, technician and designer at Rescina Service, a company from Puglia that assembles the scales and sells them in the main production areas in Italy and abroad.
"All operators complain about the bad posture during work and the effort required to move the scales around in the various harvesting points. As the equipment must be used in the fields, it probably gets bumped into and falls easily, so one of the essential requirements for Karmen is the robustness of its materials."
What's new in 2023 for Karmen:
- Sturdier: made of aluminum with thicknesses up to 6 mm;
- Lighter: it weighs only 3 kg and can easily be placed on all kinds of supports;
- More precise: the 4 loading cells have been replaced with a highly-reliable central one;
- Possibility to weigh both punnets and crates up to 60x40 cm;
- Powered by rechargeable battery with an autonomy of over 100 working hours, but it can also be powered with 4 AA batteries.
Karmen scales can easily be folded and transported thanks to its practical container and they make it possible to package all types of containers thanks to the adjustable flap.
Rescina Service, certain about the efficiency of Karmen scales, announces a special promotion destined to the BtoB market for the next table grape campaign. "Businesses will be able to purchase one scale at a 50% discount, with the option to return it if they are not pleased with it. There is a limited number of pieces available with this discount. We are certain of the quality we supply and of how much this equipment is appreciated by users, especially female ones, who experience increased speed and productivity."
Rescina Service exchanges old scales, including the ones that no longer work.
