Benefits of Innova for I-Cut portion cutters

  • Real-time monitoring and control
  • Data collection gives 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. 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. Remote program management allows you to easily control the portion cutter settings directly from the office. 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 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.
