Robotic cutting applications for the strawberry industry

Calyx removal

Based on color and shape, D-BLADE recognizes the exact position of the calyx and determines the optimal cut to achieve the highest yield. During this process, the calyx will be removed from the belt and collected in a bin outside the system.

It will handle all varieties regardless of shape, color, softness and quality.
