Information

Fully automated box packing and styling

The RoboBatcher Box packs and styles whitefish fillets and whole loins into polystyrene and cardboard boxes, directly after cutting. It does it according to precise fixed-weight or catch-weight requirements and a predefined styling pattern.

Packing whitefish into fixed-weight boxes

The system uses a unique combination of innovative robotic technology and state-of-the-art batching software, to pack boxes to a fixed-weight, so close to the target, that giveaway is always minimal. Any pieces that are out of spec can be bypassed, improving quality control and yield.

High-speed robotic processing of multiple jobs

With unmatched speed and accuracy, the system can handle up to 24 boxes simultaneously, with up to 12 different predefined jobs for retail, catering and further processors. It uses a unique packing technology to manage the flow of boxes, streamlining processing and optimizing throughput and efficiency like never before. It fully automates the dispatch process, ensuring that once a box reaches target weight it is immediately conveyed out of the robot and automatically replaced by another.

Hands-free processing with minimal manual handling

The system virtually eliminates manual handling from the packing process so you can provide whitefish of the highest quality and with optimal hygiene. It has unique grippers specifically designed for gentle product handling, ensuring even the most fragile fish isn’t damaged during packing. It also significantly reduces your reliance on manual labor, making your production process more secure and reliable.

Specifications

The Robobatcher Box handles fillets and whole loins. It can process up to 100 pieces per minute depending on the type of product and grades required.

It is a modular system with up to three cells, depending on required throughput. It offers common lane batching with two or more robot heads working together to finalize each batch.

Full-line whitefish processing

To give you full processing flexibility and total production control, the RoboBatcher Box can be combined into a total fish processing system. This could include a FleXicut for pinbone removal, trimming and portioning as well as SensorX for industry-leading bone detection.

Software

Benefits of Innova for RoboBatchers

  • Real-time monitoring and control reduces giveaway
  • Data collection gives insight to optimize processing
  • Integration with full line optimizes final product
  • Enhances batch traceability and quality assurance 

Monitor and control batching

The Innova module for RoboBatchers lets you monitor and control your batching operation in real time. The software provides live dashboards showing data for key performance indicators such as giveaway and throughput. 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 control the RoboBatchers settings directly from the office.

Get operational insight

Information about all batches produced is collected and stored in the Innova database. Standard reports can then be created giving 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 batching.
