An automatic system prototype for ornamental plants reproduction by cutting technique have been carried out. Such system consists of two subsystems: an automatic machine recognizing nodes and automatically performing cutting and leaves removal starting from the manual insertion of a parent branch, and an end-effector for cutting handling in hormone dispense and alveoli insertion phases.

For reliability and robustness reasons, implementation is entirely pneumatic and control is performed by a commercial PLC.
