In many poultry processing facilities, cut-up parts are weighed dynamically and sorted into tight weight ranges. Fillets, thighs, drum, or wings can be graded for a fixed-weight retail or bulk pack. Retail packs are graded to a fixed weight with minimal give-away and with a continuous focus on customer specifications. 

The MARELEC intelligent batching algorithm provides the flexibility that processors need to fulfill tight customer specifications. For instance, retail packs or trays with minimum give away of a specific grade can be combined with a fixed quantity per pack. 

The grader or sorter can be configured in many ways, such as the number of grading stations, or single, double, or triple lines with customized batching bins. MARELEC can offer you the right solution for each specific packing situation concerning packing into trays, boxes, or tubs.

Unparalled accuracy & optimal product handling

Cut up parts can vary from a tender or fillet to a breast cap, wing, drum, or whole leg. Each product requires a specific weighing and grading solution resulting in ideal and gentle handling.

Ergonomic design

A team of engineers translates your sorting and packing requirements for chicken parts into a custom grading solution. We always give full attention to the ergonomics for the operators. This flexible approach guarantees the perfect solution for the application while maintaining the maximum throughput as a priority with the smallest possible footprint.

Robust and hygenic design

The graders have a completely open structure, without hidden corners, for ease of cleaning and disinfection. The design of the graders avoids horizontal surfaces. Batching stations can be opened easily. All electrics and electronics are contained in a completely sealed cabinets with a unique hygienic labyrinth double sealing. All materials used are FDA approved. To avoid housings and reductors, all motors are silent stainless steel drum motors with IP 66 or higher protection.

Various infeed systems

Tender fillets require a different infeed system than whole legs. MARELEC offers the complete range, from in-line feeding conveyors to multiple High Speed Infeed systems. The required capacity will determine whether a single or a dual lane is needed.

Easy connection with MATRIX software

The interface is quick, user-friendly and intuitive to program. Over 100 programs can be stored. Production data can be viewed on the grader HMI. The user-friendly MATRIX program stores processing data on an office PC for traceability. MATRIX also allows the grader to be controlled remotely.
