ScanCut 1 & 3 Portion Cutter
High speed cutting: Fixed weight, fixed thickness
The ScanCut 1 and ScanCut 3 portion cutters are suited vertical cutting of chicken fillets and fish fillets. Following the product type, different product fixation systems are possible. Different knife types, suited to the product, can be used.
Both portion cutters are single-lane portion cutters with a vertical knife. The main difference between the ScanCut 1 and ScanCut 3 is the number of cameras; the ScanCut 1 has one camera and is suited for flat products whereas the ScanCut has three cameras and is able to properly scan rounded products.
ScanCut 1 is the basic model with one camera, designed for portioning flat products vertically on fixed weight, such as fish or chicken fillets, or for cutting, when only a fixed thickness is required. The machine can be upgraded with 2 additional side cameras.
The ScanCut 1 can handle product sizes of up to 1000 x 240 x 150 mm.
The ScanCut 3 has three cameras – one top camera and two lateral cameras. This allows the machine to improve the scanning and cover blind spots at the side of the product that cannot be detected by the top camera only. It is used for accurate portioning of red meat, whole fish or any product with an irregular shape, in a vertical direction.
The ScanCut 3 handles product sizes of up to 800 x 240 x 150 mm.
Both machines can be equipped with all options mentioned in the Options list on the opposite page. This allows modifications to the ScanCut according to your evolving products and applications over the lifetime of the machine.
A product is fed on the infeed belt. A 3D laser scanner then calculates its volume. A preset weight and shape frame is selected from the program menu. The portion computer then calculates where to cut.
An catch weigher can optimise the precision with changing product characteristics.
The machine can be opened up completely for easy cleaning and is designed for optimal cleaning to meet extreme hygienic standards (CIP integrated). The belts can be removed for separate cleaning.
For maintenance, easily obtainable spare parts have been selected. This guarantees the lowest possible maintenance costs.
All motors and encoders are situated away from the wet area, which ensures a long lasting lifetime.
