Chinese Goji Picker
Goji is one of the unique fruit of Northwest China,Because it is rich in nutrients,so loved by many people.Goji annual output is very large,but the vast majority is still artificial picking,time-consuming and laborious.AND Goji leaves have a lot of short spines,so many workers had to bring gloves picking,but still injured.Inspired by the relative rotation of the gear, the gear into a soft silicone brush, in the outdated time will not hurt the fruit.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This harvester design no only improves peoples comfort in use,protects the hands of workers,but also improves work effciency and picking speed.The machine handle is ergonomic and can be used by the worker to reduce the tiredness of the hand.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Picking, the workers only need to use one hand to seize the branches of goji, the other hand the machine groove alignment branches, start the machine, you can automatically harvest.
PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
University and Astronautics Design Institute of Art began in January 2017 in the Bu Liyan studio
PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Chassis with PP plastic;Brush with soft silicone;
SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
156mm x450mm x230mm
Goji picker, picking device, Chinese Goji,
