We are thrilled to show our new solution for de-palletizing and de-icing, using robot technology to unload boxes from the pallet and empty the fish into the de-icing area. The system reduces heavy manual lifting while securing a steady product flow. Batch control can be programmed to deliver an exact amount of fish (kg) or boxes, giving you full control of raw material usage.


Data is increasingly valuable in today’s hi-tech processing environment and connectivity is now a linchpin in salmon processing facilities. Designed to improve productivity and shorten cycle time, Innova Food Processing Software is an integral part of the processing equipment and solutions featured at the showhow. Step into the Innova office in the demo area, and the new Innova lab on the first floor at the event to experience some of the advantages the software has to offer.


FleXicut Salmon cuts the pinbones from pre-rigor salmon fillets. It uses X-ray vision to locate the bones and ensures minimum yield loss by adjusting the water-jet cutting angle to remove bones according to their precise location each time. The machine also expands future processing opportunities by using both water-jet cutters and knives to portion the salmon.


Our Quality Scanner MS 2920 was demonstrated for the first time at the 2018 Salmon ShowHow. By scanning fillets after trimming or skinning—registering volume, color, melanin spots, blood spots, trimming defects, skinning defects and brown meat—you can sort the fillets downstream and better control the quality and size of each fillet. Several Quality Scanners will be in the demo hall, showing various applications.


See some of our latest filleting solutions with the industry leading Filleting machine MS 2730 including automatic back and belly trim. One line will include the Automatic Deheader MS 2720 and QC scanners checking the fillet quality after filleting and skinning. A second line features a new solution with the PaceInfeeder for steady infeed of manual deheaded fish into the filleting machine, improving the overall filleting quality.


The two skinning machines at the event ensure fillets are skinned without any loss in quality or capacity. The skinners optimize the flow of salmon processing lines and stand out for the way fillets are skinned head first, leaving no skin on the tail and achieving optimum yield from each fillet.


We will demonstrate a variety of key applications for creating value-added products using our portion cutters. Our range of portioning lines offer the latest in innovative cutting patterns, and can deliver custom-made portions directly to orders. The 2019 event will feature: the I-Cut 130 PortionCutter for cutting fixed-weight and/or fixed-length portions, along with pick-and-place robots; the highly efficient I-Cut 11 PortionCutter, combined with the SpeedSort to deal with the trim rejects; and the I-Cut 610 PortionCutter together with one of our QC Scanners.


As the leading supplier of slicing equipment for fresh salmon and trout, we have slicing equipment ranging from single standard units to large scale production systems including packing lines. This event will demonstrate an array of our slicers, suitable for the whole range of production needs, including the I-Slice 3300 retail pack slicer, horizontal slicers, D-cut slicers and multi-angle slicers.


Our fixed-weight batching and grading equipment helps keep giveaway as low as possible. Our Multihead Weighers batch raw material frozen or fresh and create packs based on target weight with very high capacity and accuracy. See also the fast, accurate SmartLine Grader in action, with superb hygiene and serviceability, and a comprehensive, real-time Innova reporting function that helps optimize grading and batching results.


Our end-of-line demonstrations at the 2019 event include labelers, floor scales and packing lines. The M360 wide edge, linerless labeler offers speed, ease of use and branding impact, while the WPL9060 Weigh Price Labeler is designed for a wide range of applications and can handle all popular pack sizes at up to 60 packs/min.
