Introducing the Kairos “Cultivator” dry trimming machine

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.

Precision Blades - Dry Trimmer

PRECISION BLADES

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.

CLUTCH SYSTEM

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.

Easy Cleaning - Dry Trimmer

EASY CLEANING

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.

Brush system - Dry Trimmer

BRUSH SYSTEM

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.

Trim Collector - Dry Trimmer

TRIM COLLECTION

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.

Digital Timer - Dry Trimmer

DIGITAL TIMER

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.

Internal LED - Dry Trimmer

INTERNAL LED

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.

Dual Down Brushes - Dry Trimmer

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.

The Problem with Most Trim Machines

Trimming machines in general got a bad reputation in the early 2000s because many of the machines would chew up the product and waste half the harvest. Even now, most trimming machines on the cannabis market (both wet and dry) sacrifice product quality for speed. Bud trimmers typically throw the product around in a tumbler style machine, damaging trichomes, sacrificing potency, and wasting product. Many of the similar designed trimming machines that don’t use the tumbler style setup will use metal on metal blade designs, which increases friction and heat and still cause more damage.

Moving forward into the future

The cannabis industry has seen rapid growth since the legalization of recreational marijuana use in several states. With more states considering legalization each year, the demand for product continues to increase. This means that growers are constantly seeking out new ways to keep overhead low while producing a high-quality product for the expanding marketplace. With the Cultivator, Kairos is committed to helping cannabis growers become more profitable and successful while maintaining the integrity of a high-quality product.
