Bosman Van Zaal “Smart Sleever”:

Bosman Van Zaal’s robotic experts have unveiled the “Smart Sleever,” a new robot that automates the sleeving of potted plants with unrivaled integration capabilities and control.

In horticulture, volumes are increasing, but batch sizes are decreasing. It is precisely the small batches that are difficult to automate, so this is still mostly done manually. This makes small batches particularly costly. The Smart Sleever solves these concerns by placing plants seamlessly and carefully in protective sleeves. Above all, the Smart Sleever is compact, easier to integrate, and inexpensive.

More than just automation: “versatility reigns supreme”
According to Bosman van Zaal, the Smart Sleever isn’t just about replacing hands with machines. “Its intelligent design caters to the diverse needs of growers. “It’s less sensitive to sleeve specifications and handles both paper and plastic sleeves, offering flexibility based on specific requirements. Then, as a small batch specialist, the Smart Sleever enables efficient building block in small-order processing lines. It also seamlessly blends into existing packing lines, minimizing disruption and maximizing ease of use.” Finally, they add it’s a gentle and compact robot. “It handles even delicate plants with care, preventing damage and ensuring product quality.”

Building on a legacy of innovation
Bosman Van Zaal boasts a track record in automated sleeving since the year 2000 with their Pot Plant Sleever, which is used by growers worldwide. “With a remarkable sleeving speed and very suitable for large batch volumes, the Smart Sleever is especially interesting for smaller batches or lower volumes.”

The future of potted plant packaging is here
“The Smart Sleever is poised to transform the industry, offering growers more efficiency, lower labor costs, and improved product presentation. Eager to experience the Smart Sleever with your own eyes,” Sign up for a live demonstration at Vilosa, a highly innovative potted plant nursery, via Bosman Van Zaal’s website.”
