A Singapore supplier of eggs to food manufacturers and retailers has seen productivity increase by 30% since introducing a a robotic palletising system.

Seng Choon Farm is now producing 200m eggs each year.

In addition to supplying eggs to retailers, they are processed into pasteurised liquid egg or hardboiled products for the food industry.

The firm’s new palletising system was supported by the Capability Development Grant managed by SPRING Singapore, an agency of Singapore’s Ministry of Trade and Industry that helps local enterprises.

It allows the farm to lift 20 tonnes of eggs a day, without manual labour, with further increases in productivity forecast for the coming years.

Essential automation

Koh Yeow Koon, managing director, Seng Choon Farm, said, “The farm’s production volume has already risen from 150 million eggs per annum previously to exceed 200 million eggs per annum.”

“Automation at every stage of production is essential in order to handle the high production volume,”​ Koh added.

The new equipment was provided by ABB.

“While the nation expands its agriculture industry, it is highly essential that automation is adopted in all new developments to ensure sustainability. Robotic automation is an example of a dependable solution to reduce footprint on the factory floor and ensure continuation and optimisation of production,”​ said Ang Boon Hua fromABB Singapore.
