Petersime launches solutions for automation of single-stage hatcheries

More and more hatcheries have invested in single-stage incubation and see their business growing significantly. Because of the higher production of chicks every day, it is crucial to strive for improvement in terms of speed, consistency and cost reduction. As adding personnel would have an enormous impact on the labour costs, we’re convinced that automation is the way to go.

Petersime helps facing these challenges by offering a range of standard automation solutions to increase the efficiency of essential processes in your hatchery. With professional assistance, our experts help you find out which automation solution will deliver the most added value to your hatchery.

Automatic Candling and Transfer Machine

This compact candling machine picks out non-viable eggs and transfers fertile eggs carefully to the hatching basket. This minimizes the amount of breakage and hairline cracks and reduces the risk of contamination. Moreover, it registers all data so you can both provide feedback about the flock to the breeder farm and better manage your egg supply because the estimation of the number of chicks hatching will be more precise. This way, you’ll be able to guarantee security of supply to your customers.

Washing Machine

When striving for uncompromised bio-security, this automated washing machine is very useful. Next to an increased hygiene in your hatchery because of the qualitative cleaning of setter trays, hatcher baskets and chick boxes, it also works faster with less people involved.

Sexing and Vaccination Line

For an optimal workflow, it’s important to be able to process more chicks with less effort on a minimum amount of space. This space saving line provides a comfortable working position for the hatchery employees and guarantees a higher speed of operation.

Chick Counter

With manual counting, great accuracy on a high speed is hard to realize. This machine eliminates errors of hatchery employees and operates faster which results in healthier chicks because they have to spend less time in the take-off room.
