The PORTIO 3D dual-lane, fixed-weight portion cutter is used to portion poultry meat such as large chicken or turkey fillets at the highest capacity with the smallest possible footprint. It uses two independent lanes, each equipped with 3 camera/laser combinations to accurately scan all around the chicken or turkey fillets.
The PORTIO 3D dual-lane, fixed-weight portion cutter for poultry uses a top camera combined with lateral side cameras on each lane to scan the volume of larger more rounded chicken or turkey fillets. 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 for a maximum yield for all poultry applications.
3 sets of laser cameras, one on the top and 2 on the sides perfectly scan the more rounded chicken or turkey fillets on both lanes. This transforms the shape of the poultry product into a 3D model. As it knows the density of the meat, the intelligent software of the portioning machine instantly calculates where to cut the prodtuct 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.
Specially designed options can be bolted on to the portioner at any later stage for specific applications. A laser line can be projected on the infeed belt to indicate to the operator the correct placement of the chicken fillets. The density scale compensates for variations in injected poultry products. The Automatic Product Holder prevents the crustfrozen chicken fillets from moving during portioning. The BackHolder holds the last portion upwards and prevents the primal from slipping backwards. The retractable outfeed belt the head to be separated or the tail to be trimmed from the center cuts, 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 the details of the thickness and the weight of each poultry portion. Each lane can independently run programs which provides maximum flexibility.
The MATRIX P software collects all production data from the PORTIO poultry cutting machine and allows generate production reports to be generated. MATRIX P enables users to remotely take programs offline and monitor the status of the poultry dicer using an event log.
The portion cutter complies with the most stringent hygiene standards. The open structure of the portioning machine for poultry 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, allowing the status of the poultry slicer 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 have their own controller and can run individual cutting programs.
