Closure Wings on Olive & Grape Harvesters are Not the Same.

an integral part in managing grape and olive harvester operational costs.

Robby of Dobler Imagineering displays a harvester closure wing with the widest in wear strips: an integral part in managing grape and olive harvester operational costs.

Today I learned alot about precision machining from Robby Dobler next to the Capital Press booth at the Colusa Farm Show.

Robby couldn’t speak more highly of his father who started Dobler Imagineering 35 years ago. His father, Darrell he explained is something of a genius when it comes to producing a final product. When you got to have a part of any kind made quickly, and for less than the price of what you might buy it new, Dobler Imagineering is all about that. Be it plastic, metal, remakes, prototypes, metal work, farming, restaurant, and custom machine parts, conveyor parts, or even “that thing” that isn’t made anymore; they can make it. And they can make it cheaper. “If I could remember what half of what my Dad forgot, I’d be happy.”

I was curious to know why Dobler Imagineering was at the Colusa Farm Show. “We do the best precision machining around.” Robby said, “but these Closure Wings are the real reason we are here.”

What makes these closure rings special Robby?

“Our product has twice the thickness on the wear strip. Closure wings are typically replaced on harvesters with an inferior product. For olive and grape harvesters, that means alot of money spent. Our harvester closure wings have twice the wear strip compared to our competitor’s. Theirs will last maybe 60-80 acres. Our product will last an entire season without changing.”

Robby Dobler shared with me he is a resident of Lodi, California and will return from the Calousa Farm Show on Thursday to his wife Carolyn, and his really “great kids”….a skateboarding 11 year old and two 8 year old gymnasts.

Dobler Imagineering, truly a high precision problem solver in machining… is based out of Victor, California.
