Monitor fillet quality
After filleting, the dual-lane QC Scanner can scan each fillet to detect its color, any melanin and blood spots, and any trimming defects. Fillets are automatically sorted according to pre-selected tolerance settings. After skinning, the QC Scanner can sort fillets for rework based on the detection of any skin pieces or brown meat.
The QC Scanner calculates the weight of each fillet using vision laser scanning technology. This feature can be used to indicate the yield trend to determine when adjustments on the filleting machine might be necessary.
Marel’s Innova software monitors QC scanners, with real-time monitoring and reporting on the quality of the fillets after filleting and skinning. Information about the quality of the scanned fillets is collected in real time and stored in the Innova database, enabling users to analyze, sort the material, quality grade and optimize their quality process.
