Project description:
This customer supplies food animals and materials for terrariums. Their assortment consists of, amongst others, live food animals, such as grasshoppers and crickets. These live food animals are manually packaged in small boxes, after which these are sent to customers throughout Europe. Manual packaging is a time-consuming process.

Development, design and construction
SSEB was asked to develop a machine to automate the packaging process. Following an extensive testing phase, executed in close cooperation with the customer, SSEB presented a concept. Once the concept was approved by the customer, SSEB started engineering, detailing and building the machine.

Important in this project was that the food animals stayed alive during the packaging process. SSEB came up with an innovative solution. The machine packages both live crickets and grasshoppers, varying in weight.
