LAS VEGAS, Nev. — The launch of the new Mobius M9 Sorter was the main attraction at Eteros Technologies’ “Demo in the Desert” exhibition today, showcasing innovative agriculture technology for commercial hemp and cannabis growers.
Eteros Technologies, the Canadian-based parent company of Mobius and Triminator, hosted the event at its new U.S. headquarters in Las Vegas, which opened in February, allowing the company to expand inventory and create jobs in the community.
“Today, we brought together the industry to show how our company is growing and providing innovative solutions for our customers and the industry as a whole,” said Aaron McKellar, founder and CEO of Eteros. “The M9 Sorter is a game-changing addition to our product lineup and will only make it easier and more efficient for growers to produce high-quality cannabis and hemp at a commercial scale to meet rising consumer demand.”
McKellar said the M9 Sorter was designed for cannabis and hemp cultivators and processors to handle more product in less time while increasing accuracy in sizing. It features an industry-leading nine sorting belts, 78-inch sorting zone and longer sorting table to achieve that goal and is capable of grading up to 200 kilograms per hour. The M9 Sorter also has fully adjustable grading partitions and infeed hopper, 7-inch HMI color controller and tool-free removal of all belts and rollers for easy and safe cleaning.
“The M9 Sorter is assembled right here in Las Vegas for our U.S. customers,” said Dana Mosman, director of marketing and sales for Eteros. “This automated technology is essential for the hemp and cannabis industry in a burgeoning and competitive marketplace.”
Eteros plans to initially hire a dozen full-time employees for the Las Vegas facility, and additional job opportunities will open as the company continues to build out.
In addition to the M9 Sorter, “Demo in the Desert” featured additional technology from Mobius, Triminator and Green Vault Systems. The three companies shared the stage throughout the event to present live demonstrations and tutorials, including a full front-to-end running of Mobius’ M108S trimming line and conveyor system, which can process up to 250 pounds of cannabis per hour.
Triminator conducted a demonstration of its full line of automated cannabis and hemp solutions, starting with hemp flower still on the stalk and following them through the entire process from bucking to kief and rosin press. Green Vault Systems demonstrated the flexibility and accuracy of its Precision Batcher, using gentle puffs of air rather than vibration to move and package product. The process aids in the preservation of trichomes on hemp and cannabis flowers, leading to a higher end-potency, better market price and consumer experience.
As more states legalize cannabis and researchers find new uses for industrial hemp, McKellar said it is only a matter of time before the commodity finds equal footing with other traditional agricultural commodities. Once that happens, the high-tech equipment offered by Mobius, Triminator and Green Vault Systems will provide growers and processors a clear edge.
“We hope our ‘Demo in the Desert’ event showed what is possible for the industry going forward,” McKellar said. “There are solutions out there for our growers to be even better, faster and more efficient than ever before.”
