THE GEMINI MILKING ROBOT DOUBLES YOUR ADVANTAGES
With the Boumatic Gemini Single Box, you essentially receive two rooms (milking & equipment) in one compact unit. This robotic milking system improves your dairy farm’s operation so you can spend more time with family and friends without worry of timing issues and labour problems.
The Gemini Single Box is a compact milking robot equipped with one stall. It has a well-organized technical area and one robot arm. The single box robot milks one cow between the rear legs using its industry-leading, patented system.
BOUMATIC SUPERIOR MILKING QUALITY IN A COMFORTABLE ENVIRONMENT
Your dairy farm can benefit from this robotic system’s proven BouMatic technology and equipment. This system features equipment like vacuums, pulsation, and balancing technology with the best practices in milking. Every robot is built on BouMatic’s longstanding commitment to ensure you can harvest milk in the best possible way for your dairy farm.
Milking From Behind
BouMatic has pioneered and patented a system that attaches the milking equipment from between the cow's back legs, creating a milking experience similar to that of a side-by-side parlour. This system uses a cow-focused approach to automated milking and provides direct benefits when it comes to milking, animal welfare and protecting the system. The cow is relaxed, comfortable and free from visual distractions from arm movements. It helps make it feel natural to her, instead of being approached from the side.
You can manually milk or treat cows when required from a safe and convenient position. The robust stainless steel system and the rear-milking approach also minimize the cow’s ability to kick or step forcefully on vital machine components.
Through the open frame of the Gemini BouMatic Milking robot, the cow has an unobstructed view and therefore feels like she is still among the herd.
Individual quarter measurement
The milk from each teat is screened and analyzed. This data is displayed directly on your mobile device, providing insights into milk quality and cow health. Consequently, you can perform better follow-ups and herd health management.
EMPOWER YOUR DAIRY WORK FLOW WITH GEMINI ROBOT TECHNOLOGY
Dualfit: Fetch Two Cups at Once
BouMatic milking robots are equipped with a unique dual attachment functionality. It is an intelligently designed mechanical head that allows the robot arm to fetch two cups at once. Reducing arm movement increases the cow throughput and box performance.
Boumatic Advanced Interface: Compatible With Your Smartphone & Computer
The software technology in the BouMatic Robotics system is extremely user-friendly. There is a wealth of information and functions available for you to make herd management decisions.
The robot’s software and the brain behind the user interface are known as the BRI (BouMatic Robotic Interface). The latest version allows you to troubleshoot issues effectively.
You have multiple ways to access and manage information: smartphone, tablet, desktop computer, and the robot’s multi-functional touchscreen.
Time-of-Flight Camera: Determine the Exact Position of Individual Teats
The camera’s time-of-flight technology can determine the exact position of individual teats. This advanced technology has given Boumatic’s milking robots superior attachment results. As it approaches, it conducts a 3D analysis of the teats, identifying the location more accurately. The waterproof stainless-steel 3D camera also has a flat surface for easy cleaning.
Teat Teach Screen: Robot Adapts to Cows
One of our favourite functions to use in the Gemini interface is the Teat Teach Screen. The camera brings up the image of the udder onto the screen. The operator can simply touch the teat ends on the image to “teach” the camera where the teats are for that particular cow. This can be done for cows that have difficult teat placement. The robot will then remember the location of her teats when that cow enters the box again, making the attachment process much more efficient.
Upgrade Equipment & Software
The BouMatic robotic milking unit is easy to update with its equipment and software options. Since the technology in robotic milking system has evolved quickly, forward-thinking dairy farmers can easily follow up on the latest innovations in their existing robotic milking system.
As it is quite user-friendly, you can easily hand over management to another trained operator. When you need time for other things, almost anyone can be trained to properly operate the robot and take over when needed.
SC Gaurd Milk Monitoring Instrument
A new option with the Gemini milking robots is our SC-Guard. The SC-Gaurd is a milk monitoring instrument for Somatic Cell Count (SCC), which allows you to monitor your cow’s health and treat preventively. The instrument automatically takes a milk sample, which is analysed for sub-clinical mastitis based on the SCC in the earliest stages. Early detection of sub-clinical mastitis followed by appropriate treatment reduces the risk of contamination and reduces the amount you spend on antibiotics. It also increases the chances of recovery, and loss of milk yield is reduced.
Realtime Health Monitoring & GPS Localization
With BouMatic RealTime Activity, you have a powerful device in hand to locate and monitor your cows in real time. This is achieved through the BouMatic neck tag, which also provides extremely accurate heat detection with health monitoring. You are able to have data on each animal — in real time. These details are needed to achieve optimal overall herd performance.
Coupled with the BouMatic HerdMetrix™ phone app, the data is accessible anywhere. You will be able to identify cows with health problems sooner and treat them accordingly. Moreover, the increasingly accurate insemination rates will quickly offer a return on investment.
BouMatic’s RealTime is fully customizable for a range of alerts and sensitivities.
