Chicken fillet cutting and sizing solution
This solution is designed for use in the poultry industry. It offers high capacity and perfect accuracy in the cutting of fresh chicken fillet for the retail and catering industries.
Suitable for small, medium and large sized poultry processing distributors who require portioning and sizing jobs in production lines with maximum utilization of raw materials.
Suitable for harsh production environments, this solution efficiently cuts chicken fillets into precise sizes that fit the sales orders to be packed. Poultry breeders are managing to produce larger and larger chickens. This requires the food processing industry to be able to cut things such as chicken fillets into sizes that satisfy retail portion requirements. In order to obtain a natural look, a 45° knife angle cutting application is used.
The integrated intelligent distribution control application in the portion cutter ensures that chicken fillets are precisely cut into the sizes and portions required for individual sales orders. This means that up to 6 cutting jobs can be handled simultaneously (6 target weights), ensuring high yield with the least amount of trim. The portion cutter scans each individual fillet and calculates how to produce the optimal yield, e.g. cutting to least amount of trim or cutting for maximum trim in order to use that trim for one of the jobs.
Scope of delivery
The system is designed for the cutting of fresh boneless chicken fillets into fixed weight portions whilst maintaining a natural look. The system consists of a Scanvaegt ScanCut 225S PortionCutter, a Scanvaegt SpeedDrop 225S and a Scanvaegt SP520 Process Compact Sizer.
The ScanCut 225S PortionCutter is the ultimate single lane, high-speed cutting machine for the lean production of poultry. With a cutting frequency of up to 2,170 strokes per minute- the ScanCut 225S produces precise, fixed-weight portions while reducing give-away and maintaining a high yield-percentage. The portion cutter makes it possible to combine several cutting jobs getting the best possible yield utilization.
Scanvaegt SpeedDrop 225S
The Scanvaegt designed speed-drop is controlled by the portion cutters and can control up to 6 different types of raw material. It features a very fast servo-driven retraction function, which allows up to 130 portions to be sized out individually per minute.
SP520 Compact Sizer
The Scanvaegt SP520 Compact Sizer is a fast, accurate and robust sizing solution that dynamically weighs and sizes products with speeds of up to 160 items per minute. The concept is available in three standard configurations that accommodate different production requirements from sizing to simple batching jobs.
The feedback functionality in the portion cutter ensures that weighing results from the process weigher are fed back to the portion cutter. In this way, the portion cutter can change density according to the feedback weight and adjust cutting size.
