DairyRobot R9500 – fostering sustainable dairy farming

Add Better

As one of our most resource-efficient solutions, our milking robot carries the Add Better label.

By combining process automation with digitalization, GEA supports you in making your dairy farm more sustainable, flexible and easier to manage while improving animal welfare. The DairyRobot R9500 requires up to 19% less energy than the predecessor model as single box.* Additional process improvements also reduce water consumption, detergent use and milking times. Combined with the energy savings, these enhancements result in significantly more sustainable and economical milking to support next-generation dairy farming. The Add Better label relates to the serial product DairyRobot R9500, released in July 2021. The comparison refers to its predecessor model.

Prior to receiving the Add Better label, the Dairy Robot’s efficiency gains were also confirmed via independent testing by the German Agricultural Society (Deutsche Landwirtschafts-Gesellschaft – DLG).

*The measurements refer to the latest generation DairyRobot R9500 with connected loads of 1.1 kW for vacuum and 2.2 kW for compressed air. Does not apply to the FDA US variant.

GEA DairyRobot

An automated milking system for premium milk quality

GEA’s proven In-Liner Everything technology performs every step of the milking process – stimulation, teat cleaning, forestripping, milk harvest and post-dipping – in a single attachment. This uniform, quick and comfortable process, all occurring within the teat cup, is key to harvesting excellent quality milk while maximizing the efficiency of your robotic milking facility.

Groundbreaking mastitis detection by individual quarter

Combine your GEA robotic milking system with pioneering sensor-based technology that helps facilitate earlier detection of mastitis. During milk flow, the optional GEA DairyMilk M6850 cell count classes sensor monitors every udder quarter of every cow at every milking and without the use of any chemical consumables or reagents. Thanks to the cell count analysis in each individual udder quarter you can more accurately detect subclinical mastitis infections and benefit directly from faster treatment periods. Its sensor technology unlike anything else on the market - and it is working continuously to help protect the udder health of your herd.

Safe and functional workplace in a high-tech environment

With an unobstructed view of the cow and easy access to the udder and the MilkRack, the operator can freely intervene in the milking process at any time with the DairyRobot R9500, when it comes to training new heifers, handling special needs cows, or drying cows off. Real-time events can be monitored in easy-to-read graphs on a large touchscreen display. With a few clicks, you can get a current picture of animal health or switch to monitoring milking parameters. With such sophisticated technology and convenient user-features, your management activities can be quickly completed as efficiently as possible.

A milking robot designed for cow comfort and productivity

The compact footprint of the DairyRobot R9500 can be seamlessly integrated into your facility, whether you are building new or retrofitting an old barn. The entrance and exit gates open wide and the robust end frame guides cows of all sizes gently into the best position for attachment. The MilkRack quietly and comfortably glides under the cow, and the most recent 3D camera with Time-of-Flight (ToF) technology precisely attaches the teatcup. When the milking process is over, the hydroformed feed trough is covered. This encourages the cow to leave the milking robot more quickly when the door opens.

Automatic milking with less complexity

The GEA DairyRobot R9500 is simply smarter milking technology. The milking robot’s strong performance is achieved in combination with streamlined maintenance, and the ability for 24/7 operation with minimum use of consumables and energy. With the DairyRobot R9500, up to four boxes can be connected to one Supply Unit. This way they share one vacuum pump, compressor, milk and calf milk line, and tank connection – which means less equipment and reduced system complexity. This lowers overall operational consumptions and the more boxes you operate the greater the benefits!

More economical with every box

Low consumption rates and running costs are the key to sustainability and economic success. For the second time, GEA has joined the DLG consumption test with the DairyRobot R9500, along with one other manufacturer. In order to demonstrate the savings effect of a multibox system, not only the monobox system (1-box) but also the multibox system (2-box) of the GEA DairyRobot R9500 was tested.
