Ceva recently designed a range of fully automated egg hatchery equipment for Japfa Comfeed in Subang West Java, which will make it one of the most advanced egg hatchery facilities in Indonesia.
The global provider of intelligently designed hatchery technology worked closely with Japfa to automate its major hatchery processes with a custom-made system incorporating the latest LaserlifeTM egg candling technology, basket stackers and destackers along with a setter tray tipper. The state-of-the-art equipment was designed to fit the specific operational requirements and the building environment at Japfa.
The new automated equipment will increase the hatchery productivity to a processing capacity of 1.5 million eggs per week and producing 1.2 million day-old chicks per week (300,000 per day). The site will be able to process 65,000 per hour with a take-off speed of 72,000 per hour. With more accurate identification and removal of contaminated or dead eggs, the Japfa hatchery has maximised its compliance with the highest biosecurity and safety standards whilst boosting chick quality.
Mr Akhyar, from Japfa Comfeed stated: “The expertise and design excellence of the Ceva team gave us the confidence to invest in the future of our hatchery. We are proud that our hatchery is now the most advanced in Indonesia.” Lukasz Chraszczak, Asia Area Sales Director at Ceva Ecat-iD Campus added “We were delighted to be able to take on the challenge of designing and installing a custom-made range of automated hatchery equipment for Japfa in Indonesia. “It is very rewarding to see our bespoke designs making such a difference to the hatchery and making it a shining example of automation success in the region.”
