The dual-lane PORTIO 1 DAP has the highest capacity for portioning fish fillets with the smallest possible footprint. Fillets are cut at an angle for a natural look, or to obtain a greater plate coverage. The angle of the knife can be set in 5 positions.
The dual-lane fixed weight portion cutter PORTIO 1 DAP uses a top camera on each lane to scan the volume of the fish fillet. It is typically used for portioning of fish cubes or fish slices from fresh fish fillets
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 fish fillet, the intelligent software of the portioning machine instantly calculates where to cut the fillet 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 is specially designed for poultry products and will keep the products in place and prevents them from moving during portioning.
The cutting angle can be adjusted without the need for tools to 5 different positions: 0°, 15°, 30°, 45° or 50°. A patented system automatically adjusts the gap between the infeed- and outfeed belts to achieve the optimum spacing. Each lane can be individually set at an angle when running differnent programs.
Specially designed options can be bolted on to the portioner at any later stage for specific applications. The density scale compensates for variation in injected fish fillets. The Automatic Product Holder prevents crust-frozen fish fillets 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.
Both lanes are controlled by a single touch screen interface, which can be rotated towards the operators for the most ergonomic position.
The MATRIX P software collects all production data from the PORTIO and allows production reports to be generated. MATRIX P enables users to remotely take programs offlineand montior the status of the fish slicing machine using an event log.
The portion cutter complies with the most stringent hygiene standards. The open structure of the portioner allows it to be 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, allowing the status of the portioner to be diagnosed from a remote service point.
Operators appreciate the good working environment around the PORTIO, thanks to its low noise levels.
Both lanes can run individual cutting programs and can cut at different angle setting.
