Marel IPM3 X600 portion cutter for salmon

Designed to meet the needs of larger operators, the Marel IPM lll LaserEye X600 is a dual-lane unit operating at a cutting speed of up to 8 cuts per second on each of its twin blades and capable of performing the work of up to 8-10 workers.

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.
