The Marel IceDoser is an innovative machine that weighs and dispenses precise quantities of flake ice into fresh-fish boxes, ensuring that coverage is uniform and excess weight is kept to an absolute minimum. This precision significantly reduces transportation costs, particularly when airfreight is involved.
Fresh fish packing solution
Boxes containing perfectly packed fresh fish leave the RoboBatcher Box system, proceed to automatic check weighing and labeling, and the plastic film applicator places a plastic film in the box to prepare for ice. The IceDoser then automatically dispenses the ice based on the specific weight and shipping information found on the label of each box. Finally, a lid applicator automatically closes the box before palletizing.
A sensor monitors the quantity of ice and automatically transmits a request for more ice when the supply has dropped below a predetermined level, ensuring the availability of a ready supply and keeping the system's capacity at up to 16 doses per minute.
