Almond seed drilling machine

This machine drills almond seeds and puts them along a needle. A string is attached on the bottom end of the needle and the seeds move on the string when you take the needle and lift it.
This machine is used to produce a traditional sweet of Cyprus called 'soujioukos'.
The whole process is controlled by a Crouzet PLC.

It was made by my father and me.

Watch it in action here:
