Kappa Seeding Line

The Kappa Seeding Line is a seeding line built around the popular Kappa Seeder. The Kappa Seeder is a very versatile seeding machine, that has proven popular with small to medium sized growers requiring a one person seeding operation. The machine is capable of sowing any seed, naked or pelleted into any tray, making it one of the most versatile machines on the market. The seeding line shown is just one variation of how this line could be made up. Units such as the covering unit, de-nester stacker etc can be added or removed as required.

Technical Information

  • The Kappa seeding line can reach a production up to 2400 rows/hour.

  • The trays advance one behind the other on the tray filler belt, ensuring the maximum filling uniformity in every cell, also in those along the edge of the tray.

  • The filling can be adjusted with one single handle and enables a variable filling with soft, medium or high density.

  • The brushing group perfectly cleans the trays from the excess soil.

  • The whole seeding line is controlled from one central easy to use touch screen PLC. Each individual machine can be turned on or off when needed.

  • The touch screen display allows one or more seeds to be sown per cell.

  • Different kinds of nozzles are available as accessories to satisfy any requirement (silicone, multiseeding, etc.).

  • The touch screen PLC allows users to view and edit programming, production and diagnostic information and can store up to 99 seeding programs.

  • The pneumatic vibrator in the seed holding plate improves the pick up of the seeds, which also performs well with a small quantity of seeds.

  • The drum coverer for vermiculite or other grains performs a great uniformity and enables the user to choose the working width and the quantity of product distributed, to reduce any wastage.

  • Each component of the machine is designed to improve the work of operators, thanks to fast adjustments, low noise, high quality and strong building to reduce maintenance.
