Insect farming

Insect farming automation

The world demands a more sustainable food cycle to feed a growing population. Insect farming has emerged as one of the solutions as insects efficiently turn organic waste into high-value nutrients.

Viscon’s automation equipment and software solutions provide the backbone for an automated insect factory. Our decades of experience in factory intralogistics automation ensures an optimized process tailored to the needs of farming black soldier flies and mealworms. We take care of the logistics flow by automatically moving, handling and storing crates across the production process. We add intelligent software to enable traceability and full control of the plant.

Crate & pallet handling

Viscon’s automation solutions manage the flow of crates and pallets to and from storage facilities and processing lines within insect production plants.

We provide a diverse range of handling systems like (de)stacking, (un)loading, sorting and tipping to accomplish this. We integrate smart measuring tools to allow quality checks.

Storage systems

Viscon offers automated and scalable crate storage solutions in both the nursery and rearing phase. Viscon also offers pallet storage solutions for end products.

Our storage systems help farmers increase processing speed, limit labor, reduce space and safeguard quality. All additional automated handling necessary can be designed and produced by Viscon as well.


Conveyors take care of the automatic transport. Viscon offers different types of conveyors such as belt, roller and chain conveyors.

Our broad and deep expertise in conveyors enables us to select the right type for the task to be executed. Choices are for example influenced by requirements for cleanliness, weight, grip and preciseness.

Industrial washing

Each production cycle crates need to be cleaned, dried and stored before entering a new production cycle. Viscon offers a wide range of washing and drying installations for crates and pallets.

We supply fully automated washing systems for your facility and include all material handling linked to the process. Our washing machines are specified to the project characteristics and product carrier design.

Traceability & control software

With our Factory Intelligence software platform we connect all equipment and offer full process control.

This allows our customers to get the most out of their automated insect farm. Viscon’s software provides all the required functionality to manage your processes and ensure traceability. It also adds options for optimization, for example by optimizing the routing of the logistics flow.
