The cannabis industry has experienced significant growth in recent years and continues to trend
upwards. The global cannabis market is projected to grow steadily over the next few years, from
$28.26B in 2021 to $197.74B in 2028.
As the industry expands, commercial cannabis cultivators are turning to machines and automation for processes that were historically done by hand.
The increased demand for efficient cannabis processing methods made way for new technologies, offering high-quality solutions to commercial-scale facilities. Manual trimming has become increasingly challenging, lending itself to inconsistent product quality, and labor-intensive and time-consuming practices.
Processing multiple harvests each year, commercial cannabis growers need machines and
equipment that can keep up with the demands of their harvest schedule. A commercial cannabis
trimmer like the Mobius M108S can process up to 120 lbs per hour with one unit.
Compared to hand trimming, the Mobius Trimmer greatly reduces staffing requirements and saves capital on labor and operating costs. Processing facilities can reduce staff by up to 95% for a cost savings of 91%, depending on the weekly or annual production rates.
Machine trimming is faster and more efficient than hand trimming. Cannabis goes from harvest
to sale in a fraction of the time it takes a team of hand trimmers.
Utilizing trimming technology, cultivators can process more flower faster, allowing for increased productivity and keeping up with the rising demand for cannabis products.
Another benefit of machine trimming is the consistency of quality that comes out of the trimmer.
A machine like the M108S Trimmer delivers consistent, reliable results while the quality of the
trim will differ from person to person with hand trimming.
Manual trimming often results in those inconsistencies due to human error while a cannabis trimmer will ensure that every bud is trimmed to the proper level and meets the desired quality standards.
A machine trimmer also allows for reduced labor costs and improved worker safety. Hand
trimming can be physically demanding, resulting in fatigue and repetitive strain injuries.
Machine trimming eliminates those risks since the process becomes automated. In reducing labor
requirements, processors can save capital on worker expenses and operating costs.
Processing cannabis on a commercial scale requires repeatable results and consistent
production capacity. The Mobius M108S Trimmer is designed to efficiently trim cannabis and
hemp flower at commercial throughput rates.
The M108S can handle large volumes of flower, processing up to 120 lbs per hour with one unit. The Mobius Trimmer can also be connected in tandem to more than double the throughput rate.
The M108S has a stainless steel construction, making it durable and easy to clean. The
machine features precision bed knives and helical blades, ensuring a razor-sharp, scissor-like
trim every time.
This results in a high-quality, consistent product that is ready for retail sale.
As machine trimming continues to grow in popularity, more cultivators and processors are
turning to commercial-scale throughput trimmers. With a significant reduction in processing time,
reduced labor costs, and improved quality control, a commercial cannabis trimmer is the best
way to keep up with the demand of the industry.
