I-Cut 122 TrimSort

Value-adding portioning with intelligent sorting

  • Intelligent cutting patterns meet customer requirements
  • Cutting to fixed-weight with minimal giveaway
  • TrimSort functionality splits product streams
  • Vision control technology boosts accuracy
  • Connects to RoboBatcher for optimized fixed-weight batching
  • High-speed functioning maximizes yield


I-Cut 122 combines high levels of accuracy, throughput and reliability with innovative software. This dual-lane portion cutter cuts boneless, non-frozen poultry products to fixed weight and/or uniform dimensions, while give-away is kept to an absolute minimum. I-Cut 122 allows you to create high volumes of virtually all portioned products supermarkets and QSRs (Quick Service Restaurants) ask for: crispy tenders, medallions, burgers, uniform fillets, strips, nuggets, cubes and more.

Increasing yield

The dual-lane I-Cut 122 offers one of the highest throughputs in the market and will match future requirements for filleting line capacities. It can operate at 2000 cuts per minute per lane. On each lane, the cutting angle can be adjusted. 

Numerous new cutting patterns and superior accuracy levels enable processors to maximize the use of raw materials, minimize give-away and increase yield. 

The advanced vision control technology on the I-Cut 122 combined with  innovative portioning software results in accurate cutting and high-quality portioned product. 


I-Cut 122 with integrated TrimSort functionality is able to make two separate streams of cut products and the trim cut from them. This further reduces giveaway with no need for human intervention. TrimSort allows for the distribution of many combinations of high-value cut products, by accurately splitting the product flow at the highest speeds to the two integrated belts. The chosen program determines which cut parts stay on the upper conveyor and which parts land safely on the second internal conveyor. This lower outfeed belt will take these portions or trim to another process.

Intelligent batching

The I-Cut 122 is a value adding portion cutter, both as a stand-alone machine and in integration with other equipment, such as the RoboBatcher Flex, together creating the 'Robot with a knife' for intelligent batching with minimized giveaway.

Benefits of Innova for I-Cut PortionCutters

  • Real-time monitoring and control from central control room
  • Customized dashboards and reports give insight to optimize portioning process
  • Cutting programs easily shared between multiples devices
  • Enhances traceability and quality assurance

Monitor and control portioning

The Innova module for portioning lets you monitor and control your processing in real time from a central control room. The software provides live dashboards showing data for key performance indicators such as throughput, yield and weight distribution. They give you a clear overview of actual production and highlight where improvements can be made or whether any corrective action needs to be taken to ensure production is running optimally. Cutting programs can be stored and shared among two or more portion cutters.

Get operational insight

Information about all pieces and portions is collected and can be stored in the Innova database. Standardized, ready-to-print reports can then be created to give you an insight into operational performance on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. This statistical analysis takes away the guesswork and allows you to make data-driven decisions to optimize your portioning process.

Connect your business

Innova software can be implemented stand-alone with your portion cutter or it can be integrated with other Marel processing equipment across a full-line solution. This gives you central control over production, leading to optimized processing, higher yields and complete traceability for each and every portion created.



Marel offers a range of service solutions to prevent failures, maximize performance or in case of unexpected breakdowns remote or onsite assistance.

Marel has offices in 30 countries across all regions, and a global network of highly skilled professionals that provide remote as well as onsite service support. We provide quality spare parts and customized service agreements for our customers to ensure optimal performance of Marel equipment.
