The fixed-weight portion cutter PORTIO 1 is used to portion flat products such as fish fillets to a programmed fixed weight with a vertical cut. This portioner for fish is also used to cut more rounded fish fillets or whole fish to a programmed fixed thickness.
The fixed-weight portion cutter for fish PORTIO 1 uses the top camera to scan the volume of the fish fillet. The portioner can be upgraded by adding 2 side cameras to become a PORTIO 3. Bolt-on options are available to adapt the fixed-weight portioning machine over the operating life of the portioner in accordance with the evolution of your applications and processes.
The PORTIO software for the Portion Cutter always calculates the cuts so as to leave zero waste and maximize the yields. Conditional programs are possible for increased yields. Combinations of fixed thickness and various fixed weights allow portioning with maximum yields for all fish applications.
1 laser camera on the top perfectly scans flat fish fillets. This transforms the shape of the fish fillet into a 3D model. As it knows the density of the product, the intelligent software of the portioning machine instantly calculates where to cut the product to obtain the target weights.
The portion cutter has automatic stretch compensation which guarantees optimum accuracy over the years, using the same belt. The unique belt surface that has been specially designed for fish products will keeps the fillets in place and prevents them from moving during portioning.
On larger fish filets such as tuna, or more rounded whole fish, it is beneficial to add 2 side cameras, to have an optimum and accurate scan.
Specially designed options can be bolted on to the portioner at any later stage for specific applications. The density scale compensates for variation on injected fillets. The Automatic Product Holder prevents the crustfrozen fish fillets or whole fish from moving during portioning. The retractable outfeed belt allows the head to be separated or the tail to be trimmed and can be combined with a blow-off system.
Intuitive programming of cutting patterns and fast and easy fine-tuning of the programs to get the maximum yields. The cutting pattern is shown on the screen along with details of the thickness and the weight of each fish portion.
The MATRIX P software collects all production data from the PORTIO poultry cutting machine and allows production reports to be generated. MATRIX P enables users to remotely take programs offline and monitor the status of the fish slicer using an event log.
The portion cutter complies with the most stringent hygiene standards. The open structure of the portioning machine for fish allows it to be fully cleaned using a pressure washer and disinfected on the inside and outside. A CIP (Cleaning In Place) system rinses the belts. All cabinets with electrics and electronics have a unique drying system to prevent the build-up of condensation. Belts can be removed with a quick release, without the need for tools.
The portion cutter can be connected to the internet. This enables the status of the fish slicer to be diagnosed from a remote service point.
Operators appreciate the good working environment around the PORTIO, thanks to its low noise levels.
