Medicinal cannabis automation

The last few years have seen a large increase in commercial cannabis growing, thanks to the gradual legalization of medical marijuana. Viscon offers solutions in every part of the commercial cultivation process. Including tissue culture, irrigation systems, curing & drying machines, marijuana trimming machines, processing equipment, seed-to-sale software and more.

Our expertise has been cultivated over decades of experience, pioneering automation throughout the horticultural sector. The commercial cannabis industry is at the start of a new era, which creates exciting opportunities. Viscon is the perfect partner for companies looking to optimize & scale in the medical marijuana market, by providing a one-stop-shop of turnkey automation systems.

Expertise

Cryopreservation of plants

The ability to store plant materials in a stable and safe environment is vital for a commercial cannabis production. It secures a level of quality when growing medicinal marijuana, by providing a back-up of the genetically important cultivars.

Cryopreservation is the most efficient method of preserving cannabis genetics. The technology utilizes the ultra-low temperature of liquid nitrogen (-196°C/-320°F) to guarantee the best conservation of medical marijuana cultivars. Additionally, these sub-zero gene banks can be located on-site and are highly space efficient.

Cannabis cloning & tissue culture

The cultivation of young medical marijuana plants is a crucial and delicate part of the overall process. Viscon’s R&D and expertise enables several options at this stage. Multiplication by cannabis cloning, tissue culture, or seeding can all be facilitated using state-of-the-art technologies. Custom solutions are designed to fit the specs of the current cannabis growing system, no matter the cultivation media or scale.

We provide our customers with an optimal cannabis tissue culture system, through our turn-key laboratories. Fully equipped with climate & airflow control, LED lighting and drying chambers, all supporting Viscon’s revolutionary and patented growing method.

Commercial cannabis cloning is taken to the next level by our cutting-edge transplanting lines (handling 10.000 clones/hr). Clones can be inserted in biodegradable cartridges for an efficient and uniform result.

Lastly, the cultivation of cannabis mother plants through seeding is a viable option. Viscon’s automated seeding lines are the best cannabis growing equipment in the industry. The machines are optimized on accuracy and capacity, suitable for even the largest facilities.

Industrial hemp & marijuana farming

Whether you are cultivating industrial hemp outdoors, or medical marijuana in a high-tech greenhouse, Viscon provides solutions. Our technologies are applicable on any kind of growing medium (soil, rockwool, etc.) and can be fully automated.

The cannabis growing equipment line-up contains state-of-the-art grading and transplanting lines, cultivation tables, internal transport solutions, and irrigation equipment. The technology can be linked together and connected to control software, to allow for scalability and oversight in any industrial hemp farm.

Cannabis drying & curing machines

An important part of growing medicinal cannabis is to properly cure the crops. Viscon has developed industrial drying chambers, that are equipped to handle large quantities of cannabis crops.

The hemp drying machines can be fully synchronized with the rest of the cultivation and processing automation, resulting in a highly efficient supply chain. Viscon’s cannabis curing equipment ensures that crops are dried for the right period of time and handled at the optimal temperature.

Cannabis trimming & packaging machines

Post-harvest processing is a substantial and labour-intensive part of cannabis production. That also means that it holds plenty of opportunities for optimization. We have developed technologies at every stage of the process, to maximize the potential efficiency gains.

Viscon uses its experience in factory automation to build fully automated cannabis trimming machines and de-budding lines. Other equipment includes inspection/sorting lines, medical marijuana packaging machines and more.

Cannabis edibles

In collaboration with our partner, OTC Candy, we can set-up a fully automated edibles production, from concept development to packaged product. Utilize your cannabis plants in the most profitable way, by producing hemp gummies, CBD, medicinal edibles, vitamins and more.

Furthermore, we can continuously improve upon recipes and production methods, through our Innovation Centre. By constantly investing in R&D we can realize a product capable of dominating the edible cannabis market, together with our customers.

Industrial washing

Proper cleaning and hygiene are important requirements of any factory automation, cannabis production included. Through our partner, Unifortes, we provide industrial grade cleaning systems to handle all the trays, crates, totes, bins & pallets used throughout the medical marijuana growing and processing.

Just like Viscon, Unifortes has become a market leader in industrial cleaning through years of experience in numerous industries. The washers and dryers are optimized for water usage, throughput time and, of course, cleanliness. All the Unifortes machines are designed in a modular fashion, so they can seamlessly fit any commercial cannabis production.

Cannabis cultivation software

In order to comply with rules and regulations in national and international cannabis markets, businesses need to precisely track their crops, products and inventory. Viscon’s Factory Intelligence Software is the perfect solution, enabling full traceability and control over every cannabis plant.

Moreover, we can link all production and processing machinery to inventory management systems. This allows our customers to effortlessly track their yields, inventories, throughput times, lost products and more. The importance of cannabis growing software exponentially increases with scale, becoming essential for large-scale cannabis productions.
