What is Kairos
Kairos is a manufacturer of automated machinery for processing cannabis. The flagship product, called the “Cultivator,” is an automated dry trimmer that commercial cannabis growers can use to easily trim their harvest, reducing labor and ongoing overhead by 80%.
How it Began
Kairos began several years ago when the founder, a grower himself, realized how many people he would need to hire to process the cannabis at his commercial growing operation. He was overwhelmed with the monumental overhead costs associated with it, and began looking into trimming machine options. Eventually, he realized wet and dry trimmers on the market had serious flaws and decided that the market needed a new type of bud trimmer that was efficient and gentle.
What Makes Our Dry Trimmer Different
The Cultivator is designed to allow buds to roll gently against the blade with precise pressure from down brushes, producing a clean finish while keeping trichomes, terpenes, and kolas intact. All of the collected trim is premium quality for extracts. This dry trimmer does 80% of the work, leaving a small amount of hand trimming left while preserving total yield.
The Cultivator has a stainless steel upper blade and an ultra-durable, self-lubricating, high-grade polymer lower blade. Using this polymer blade, instead of the industry standard metal on metal, reduces friction and provides a smoother operation with less buildup and an easier cleaning process.
The Cultivator dry trimmer was built with client needs in mind. It features an industry-first, clutch-protected, high-torque DC motor specifically tuned to optimize trim time while producing a precise yet gentle finish on your buds.
In the unlikely event that the blade stalls or jams due to a large stem or other obstruction, the clutch system engages to protect the motor and blade assembly from damage.
Cleaning a trimming machine can be difficult and time consuming, throwing a wrench into your trim schedule. If it isn’t done properly, gunk and human error can damage the tension mechanics, blades, and ancillary aspects of the trimming process.
The Cultivator removes these issues with a patent-pending mechanism that allows you to clean the machine under two minutes. This innovative design means lowered maintenance and labor costs. No more paying workers for wasted time.
Kairos designed a brush system that is gentle enough for light, airy buds and powerful enough to work through tight, dense product. These brushes are easily adjustable and facilitate a smooth tumble for the product. Our proven system provides maximum yield production with minimal loss of terpene.
During the harvest process, every part of the plant is important. With this in mind, Kairos engineers developed an easy-to-use system for accessing and transporting any residual product. There’s a drawer built into the Kairos machine, which will catch all of the trim coming off of the buds. Use these trimmings for extracts, salves, or a variety of other products.
The easy-to-read digital timer allows you to keep an eye on the progress without interruption of duties and tasks. Set your trimming cycle and check in periodically with no interruptions. The machine will beep when it’s time for a new cycle.
Our industry-exclusive internal LED system uses only natural spectrum LED for the most honest and clear product viewing. You’ll be able to see exactly how close of a trim your product is receiving while the machine is in operation.
DOUBLE SWEEP BAR
Dual down brushes turn the bud twice per revolution, allowing the machine to operate at a slower RPM. This protects the trichomes and terpenes while still providing sufficient rotation of the product.
