The project came out from a client's idea, that wished to develop a new electrical portable system for the olives collection.

The project:

  • started in April 2004
  • production of 3 working prototypes (alpha type), November 2004
  • production of 3 working prototypes (beta type), April 2005
  • production follow-up, November 2005

The peculiar characteristic of this product is its movement: the combs that collect the olives move on spherical trajectories, drawing an ellipse.

This particular type of movement do not damage the tree and it keeps high the productivity per hour. In addition, the combs move in opposition on both the ellipse semi-axis, decreasing the vibrations transmitted to the final user.
