Marel IPM3 X600 portion cutter for salmon
Suitable for use with salmon, whitefish and almost any other species, the Marel IPM lll LaserEye Intelligent Portioning Machine is the ideal solution for high-value portioning of fillets into pre-defined weights and shapes. Using the latest in 3-D laser vision technology, the IPM lll LaserEye automatically evaluates each piece before cutting, and then calculates the most economic cut configuration based on parameters pre-selected by the production manager, using the unit’s M3000 controller.
Like all Marel equipment, the IPM lll LaserEye is capable of operating as an independent unit, or as part of a complete Marel processing system. For optimal results in whitefish processing, two IPM machines are typically used on each processing line, one as a precutter and the other for portioning final portions. At the same time, experience has shown that using the IPM lll LaserEye in a system incorporating Marel intelligent batching can enable processors to achieve up to 100% fillet utilisation, with virtually no give-away.
Operated at its rated capacity, the Marel IPM lll LaserEye dual-lane machine can perform the work of up to 8-10 people. Robust and highly reliable, the IPM lll LaserEye requires significantly less maintenance than conventional machines. Easily adaptable to new products, it cuts to a level of accuracy and consistency no human could ever hope to achieve, meaning higher yields, less trim, improved product quality, increased throughput, and a short payback time.
Marel develops high-tech processing equipment designed to increase the productivity of its customers. The Marel IPM III LaserEye is a good example of equipment with high profitability and a short payback period.
