Collecting

Collecting

The automated ball system is responsible for washing and transporting the golf balls to the dispenser. It works together with the robot ballpicker that collects the golf balls on the driving range.

Docking and dropping

Docking and dropping

When the robot's collection bin is full, it returns to its charging station and drops the balls via the grid into the Drop-pit. The drop-pit itself consists of a stainless steel tray (dropzone) with a grid for the golf balls. This is placed in the ground at the place we decide together with the customer and is where the ballpicker drops the golf balls.

Washing

Washing

Next, the golf balls roll into the ball washer, which removes mud and grass from the balls. From that moment on the ball washer starts working and the balls enter the transport chute where they are also counted.

Transport

Transport

The golf balls are transported through a vacuum system by an air system that can handle up to 300 balls at the time. The PE tube, which is custom made, has an exact wall thickness and structure to give as little resistance as possible to the flow of balls. It forms the ideal balance between diameter and air flow.
