The AMAZONE stripper finger design
The AMAZONE stripper finger design is of particular advantage because it can easily be adjusted. Only 5 steps are quite sufficient to achieve the optimum position. The stripper finger adjustment has been proven to be insensitive to seed shape and speed with 85 % of all maize varieties available on the market being singled at the same stripper finger setting. For monitoring the singling process, there is either a large inspection window and/or an opto sensor positioned inside the housing. This serves as a seed detection system for the singling disc. In case, due to an error, the deviation is higher than 10 %, an error message is sent and displayed on the terminal.
