Main parts of the Automatic chicken egg collector

The automatic egg collection system includes the egg belt, a guiding device, an egg pick-up device, a lead-out device, a buffer device, a conveying device, a sprocket, and a long drop chain. 

  • The egg belt is mounted on the egg trough stretched out of the chicken cage. It is made of Polypropylene yarn that features corrosion-resistant and antibacterial. The belt does not absorb water and is stable in hot weather. So it can be cleaned with water directly. All these features ensure a long service life for the belt. 
  • The guiding device gently receives the egg from the belt and smoothly sends them to the egg picking device. The egg picking device is full of paralleled claws that can hold the eggs from each tier of the battery cages. The eggs are held steady and unloaded to the manual processing platform connected to the vertical picker or dropped to the conveying chain safely. 
  • The conveying chain is horizontally placed in front of the egg picking device. After the eggs drop on it, the chain constantly transfers the eggs to the egg rooms. The conveying chain can change running directions such as corners and adapt to inclination. There is no crash and no second-time egg broken.
