With the MR-S2 single box milking robot, milking becomes easy for the cow and the dairy farmer. Each cow defines her own rhythm and decides when she wants to be milked. When entering the robot, the identification system recognizes her and decides if she needs to be milked or not and what quantity of concentrated feed she needs. The robot arm performs all operations from behind, moving between the rear legs to approach the udder. Using the latest camera technology, the position of each teat is determined and the robot cleans and preps each teat and then attaches the milking cups.
The robot arm completes the entire milking process from within the enclosed technical area. This starts with washing and pre-milking each teat using the special teat preparation cup (each teat is individually cleaned and pre-milked). Next, the milking cups are attached and when milking is completed, the process finishes with the post-milking teat treatment.
Each step of the process is continuously monitored via sensors and measurement devices. Any deviations during the process are immediately and clearly flagged. All important data can be viewed via smartphone or tablet (such as iPad).
