The FERRARI FUTURA is a fully automated transplanter that can work with vegetables stored in trays of different sizes and materials (hard plastic, foam, disposable). The machine works by itself (only one operator is required to feed the transplanter robots with trays). Every robot extracts the seedlings using a technology based on cylindrical plungers combined with moving fingers. There is no need to use a specific tray to run FUTURA, the machine will be adapted to the tray selected by the user: this is one of the features that makes the Ferrari automated planter a very innovative machine.

The transplanter carousel is turning in clockmotion (STOP&GO). This specific feature is extremely important to guarantee a constant drop of the plants from the carousel to the shoe. The clockmotion allows to increase the performance per hour, the accuracy of both planting depth and plant spacing. FUTURA is also equipped with a self-cleaning kicker in the ploughshare. This device is extremely important to prevent dirt accumulation in the shoe. Clock-motion rotation combined with the self-cleaning kicker can guarantee a perfect plant timing without the need of doing any adjutment on the planter. The FUTURA yield is extremely high: up to 8,000 plants/hour/row. This transplanter can work up to 24 h/day - 7 days/week without any yield drop. The machine can work both on flat ground and raised beds and it is available both in tractor pulled and self-propelled version. The self-propelled version can guarantee: easy manoeuvrability, reduction of dead times, no need for professional tractor driver.
