The weight of products can be determined automatically, using weighing equipment such as the In-line Weighing Station for ducks. This station is capable of weighing products while they're moving fast in the overhead conveyor line.
The weight of each individual duck is an important factor to determine the destination of the duck product further downstream. Will the weight be fit for sale as a whole duck or will it qualify the product for cut-up and deboning?
Automatic weighing, grading and distribution are important steps towards good in-plant logistics, full traceability, reduced give-away and improved yield. Combined with Innova PDS software, it is easy to get the best quality out of every product and product part and realize maximum product utilization, securing optimum carcass balance. The gathered data compose the input for the plant production and control software. This also influences various downstream operations.
