Right. Maybe that was from the chicken that ate the dead crazy cow.

Funny thing. This is exactly what I'm working on this month.

I'm working on an egg loader. It takes 6 flats of 30 eggs, picks up 30 eggs at a time and sets them on the grader perfectly timed to land between the rollers. Then they run thru the washer into the candler just like the above picture. Fun project.

That's really cool! I am always very impressed when I see video of production line machinery at work. It's so complicated, and somebody spent so much time making it all work smoothly.

What really impresses me is handling large volumes of such a delicate product quickly. When I look at a standard production line and imagine something like eggs going through it...

This does concern me... They want the 30 eggs moved onto the conveyor every 3 seconds. Sounds like a long time until you realize this is picking them up, lifting them 4", moving them about 2.5 feet, synchronizing to the conveyor, setting them down. and reversing all the above to get back to pick up the next 30. And not forgetting the fact that the machinery has to decelerate and accelerate at all end points... I'll be breaking some eggs fore shore..
