Processing cannabis by hand is cumbersome and time-consuming. The time from harvesting the plant to getting product to market for sale could range anywhere from about three weeks, up to two months. This is typically the case with processing a cannabis harvest by hand with a team of trimmers. While few growers still prefer to hand trim, most cultivators seek to get their product out as soon as possible to preserve freshness, increase available curing time, and keep a consistent schedule.
The visual appeal of the product is just as important as speed to market. Distributors demand high quality and consistency in their products, so the equipment processing the cannabis must also be of high quality. When processing cannabis on a commercial scale, it can be challenging to find equipment that keeps up with both capacity and speed. The Mobius M108S Trimmer is a commercial cannabis trimmer designed for high throughputs, scalability, and a boutique, hand-quality trim.
After extensive R&D and connecting with customers, Mobius evolved the M108S and it became the favored choice for commercial cannabis trimmers in the industry among cultivators. The M108S made its way into the top cannabis processing facilities across the globe, one of which being Aleafia Health; which brought its processing time from a full week involving multiple people to processing an entire harvest in just four hours with the Mobius Trimmer. A consistent speed to market is important for business success and profitability. With continuous throughput and high capacity, cultivators can expect and plan their harvest cycles to keep up with regular demand. Not only does this ensure a consistent stream of revenue, but it also increases brand reputation and loyalty. Customers can rely on the same, high-quality products every time.
Delivering on a consistent schedule also ensures product freshness. Cannabis is the freshest and most potent at the time of harvest, so it’s imperative to get product out for sale as close to the harvest as possible. A commercial cannabis trimmer should be able to process a large volume without compromising the quality of the flower. The Mobius Trimmer for example features the Variable Function System, giving operators total control over the tumbler speed, tilt, suction, and blade speed so the machine can be tailored to the strain and moisture level of each run. As a result, cannabis is trimmed faster spending less time in the machine, and the flower retains maximum trichome and terpene levels.
The M108S is a continuous throughput commercial cannabis trimmer capable of processing up to 60 lbs of dry and 120 lbs of wet flower per hour. The machine is scaleable and can run in tandem with another M108S for over double the production rates. With a stainless steel construction, the machine is washdown compatible and nearly toolless for a simple design. All plant-touching components are “hot-swappable” and are quickly and easily replaced to maximize production and reduce downtime.
To keep up with the current demands of the cannabis industry and ensure profitability, cultivators should consider a commercial cannabis trimmer. With numerous factors to consider in the purchase of a machine, customer service is important for planning the investment.
