McShane Packaging has produced a range of de-nestable punnets for the mushroom industry to work with the Mushroom Machine Gamechanger’s punnet de-nester.

The Mushroom Machine
The Gamechanger™ from the Mushroom Machine Company is an innovative, reliable and effective tool operated by one person and designed to reduce labour costs in the picking of Mushrooms. It speeds mushroom picking by around 100%, reducing waste and capturing harvesting information.
The Gamechanger™ is a mobile machine that allows pickers to pick using their 2 hands, place mushrooms on a conveyor and the The Gamechanger™ trims the stalks at the required height, places the mushrooms into punnets until the required weight is reached, ejects the punnets onto the output slide, de-nests the punnets and re-inserts a punnet onto the scale.
The Gamechanger™ is a semi-robotic machine that is small, energy-efficient, computer controlled and will fit in existing infrastructure (Dutch shelving or equivalent). We believe we can increase the picking efficiency dramatically over time for producers. The machine can quickly be configured for baby buttons as well as cups. With a Touch Screen interface and “idiot proof” software and a one button touch to change settings for large or small mushrooms. Unique user access levels and central data collection enables management to access picking data.
The Gamechanger™ can be combined with a lift rolling on rails attached to the top of Dutch Shelving or equivalent or it can use its own free rolling lift. With Electronic level controls and a “Quick Hitch” system it is truly a one person operated and installed machine. This can be attached to existing manual lifts. With the addition of the horizontal movement module effective “graze picking” can be implemented to achieve even more efficiencies and reduce picker’s workload.
Mushroom Machine The Gamechanger™ is NOW Available!
