Automatic egg transfer system

For transferring eggs from setter tray to hatcher basket in a single movement

Automatic egg transfer system


For the gentle, automatic transfer of eggs from setter tray into the hatcher basket. All the eggs can be smoothly transferred into the basket in a single movement for maximum capacity, which minimises the risk of cracks. The transport of setter trays and hatcher baskets is automated and smoothly adjusted for seamless operation, with scope for full connectivity to additional systems, such as candling systems, stackers, destackers and washing lines. Durable, stainless steel design for easy cleaning and maximum hygiene.

How it works

  • Eggs are transported automatically in setter trays by a conveyor to the transfer position
  • An empty hatcher basket is transferred to the loading position, right beside the setter tray
  • A vacuum transfer head lifts all the eggs from the tray simultaneously and gently lowers them into the hatcher basket
  • Both the empty setter tray and the full hatcher basket are released for further transport and handling, while the transfer system is loaded with a new tray and basket to repeat the sequence.
