FLDI rootstock shoot forceps

The FLDI rootstock rotary gripper: Assistance in harvesting vine shoots used for vine plants.

The FLDI vine shoot clamp.
The purpose of this machine is to facilitate the collection of branches from a mother vine stock. These branches are used for the manufacture of vine plants and serve as a support for the graft.

The branches grow on the ground and spread over a distance of up to several meters. They are therefore intertwined and difficult to untangle when pulled by hand.

The FLDI rotary gripper hitched to a motorized arm of your choice allows you to cut, pull, untangle and store in bundles the crawling branches on the ground, and all in one operation.

Up to 100 strains per hour on SO4 (having oriented the branches during the vegetative period).
How it works ?
The gripper consists of several discs on which there are fingers. These discs are controlled by an actuator which rotates them around their axis. By turning the fingers move closer to each other and cut the branches (optional) then constitute a clamp.

To use it, the forceps are placed above the stump (the branches must be pruned beforehand) and they go down until the fingers are lightly planted in the earth (about 1 cm). The rotational movement is activated: first the fingers close to cut the branches (optional) and then wedge the branches.

The forceps are removed with the branches still stuck between the fingers. By pulling, they will untangle and the driver of the machine can store them at his convenience in bundles that can be placed on the ground or on another machine (trailers, etc ...).
