Patent for the equipment and method for pitting and peeling avocados

Automated avocado processing using robotics and patented processing technology

KRONEN delivered its first robotic solution for avocado processing in April. The tools and methods that the robot uses to pit and peel avocados were developed by KRONEN and have now been granted a patent. They enable the sensitive fruit to be processed gently in an automated procedure and they play a key role in the unique Robot Avocado Line, which was showcased for the first time at this year’s Fruit Logistica and Anuga FoodTec exhibitions. KRONEN developed the innovative solution in a research project in cooperation with the German Institute of Food Technology (DIL), and it is the only system of its kind on the market.
