In West Flemish ears, Depoortere sounds very familiar. This Belgian company designs, manufactures and perfects flax harvesters, flax swingling systems and presses, and has been doing this since 1925!
However, time has not stood still and the management of Depoortere knows that. Hence the company uses the latest technologies in the development of its machines. The factory in Beveren-Leie has an experienced design office, a modern workshop with up-to-date machinery and employees with extensive knowledge in the field of natural fibres. And of course, this would not be complete without a RoboJob loading system.
Rik Depoortere, CEO: "I saw first the Turn-Assist System at a trade fair in Kortrijk. Afterwards I couldn’t stop thinking about the concept and following a visit to their factory in Heist-op-den-Berg, we were convinced to go for RoboJob. As a manufacturer of flax machines, we have the control of the engineering of our products and from this experience we knew that the RoboJob’s Turn-Assist was a thoughtfully and well crafted system. In particular the easy operation and quick set-up time allows our operators to now produce small runs man-free.”
