GEA Debuts New Robotic Milker

A new robot milker could be headed your way.

GEA unveiled a prototype of the company’s Monobox milking robot at Automation Day 4.0 in Teichröda, Germany.

The concept milking robot could join the MIone multi-box model and the DairyProQ rotary parlor system in GEA’s lineup. The robot found in the Monobox would be identical to the milking unit found in the DairyProQ.

Much like other single unit robots GEA’s Monobox will be gear towards smaller dairy operations looking to reduce labor at milking.

For now the Monobox is just in the pilot phase in countries like Germany, Canada and the Netherlands. Currently, there is no timeline for when the new robot will go on a global sales release, but there is a controlled market introduction being planned for the end of 2015.
