HIROSHIMA, JAPAN — The Satake Corp. is launching a new product brand, REACH. The product line-up consists of semi-assembled rice processing plants in different processing capacities. Product promotion is slated to begin in March and is targeting middle-size processors in Southeast Asia and Africa. 

“By adding the REACH lineup, we can now offer medium capacity rice mills in a very short turnover period,” said Yoshimasa Tomoyasu, general manager of Satake International Business Division. “Our new product is perfect for processors to whom the product quality, short installation time, and faster investment return are important.”

The REACH product is a semi-assembled rice milling plant incorporating receiving, pre-cleaning, husking, milling, optical sorting, and packing stage equipment.

Satake said it is designed to maximize the installation efficiency versus cost performance by utilizing combined components manufactured in Satake’s Thailand production facility. Installation time is estimated at two weeks. The REACH product line consists of a 7-tonne-per-hour rice mill that is suited for medium-size rice milling facilities with 25,000 to 40,000 tonnes annual capacity.
