The SmartStart™ transfer system enables you to manage egg transfer into the SmartStart™ hatcher basket with unmatched ease and flexibility. Gently transfer any number of eggs, from any type of setter tray, in any configuration you need. The system can be flexibly configured and integrated into existing hatchery automation lines.

How it works

  • At day 18 of incubation, eggs are transferred to candling for infertile eggs to be removed
  • The remaining fertile eggs are then moved from setter trays onto a specially designed in-feed conveyor belt and routed to a transfer unit
  • The transfer unit merges an adjustable number of hatching eggs into the hatcher basket via a flexible pattern configuration
  • Available as in-line and stand-alone unit
  • Easy to clean, stainless steel design for maximum hygiene
