ASTOR Stable Straw System

The HETWIN ASTOR robot for automatic bedding consists of two parts: the storage container and the ASTOR Strewing Robot.


Storage Container

The storage container holds up to two square bales or three round bales, which can be pre-stored. From there, the bales are automatically broken up from below. Then they are conveyed automatically to the dosing equipment, loosened up, and transported to the strewing robot via the conveyor belt.


The Strewing Robot, suspended from an overhead track, runs silently through the stable strewing the bedding material. It can be programmed to run different routes at set times. While in the parked position, the ASTOR re-charges its batteries.
