As you can see, we have almost everything ready for the melon campaign that will start at the end of this month. Therefore, we could not let any more time go by without putting this marvellous calibrating machine in place.

It is clear that automation of manual processes is becoming increasingly important. Although it is true that the melon cutting and harvesting tasks must be done by hand, there are others that must be properly automated in order to gain in productivity and efficiency.


From the process of unloading the basket onto the belt, from there on, everything is automated. A hydraulic system continuously pumps the contents of the basket onto a conveyor belt.


A combined belt and brush system cleans the melon skin from the dirt and dust it has acquired.


Once cleaned, they enter a funnel system that channels each of the pieces to be placed on top of baskets that act as scales to evaluate their weight and size.

The brain

A complete software controls and evaluates each of the selected parameters to decide in which part of the final route each of the pieces should be unloaded.

Packaging and quality control

Once each piece has been deposited in its corresponding cell, quality control and packaging is carried out by our team of highly qualified workers to check that the quality of each piece is adequate and meets the requirements approved by our company. Afterwards, they are packed in their corresponding boxes for their subsequent distribution. It has a total production of 16,000 kgs/hour.

In Agrícola JJF we are very proud of our company and, of course, of the investments that increase the value and quality of our products. This is the only way to achieve our most important challenge: to offer the best quality to our customers.
