You need data to get a grip on smarter processing, with equipment connectivity now a linchpin in fish processing facilities. Marel’s Innova Food Processing Software is an integral part of our processing equipment and solutions. The software connects equipment, operators and raw materials to provide valuable insights about the raw materials and the production cycle.
Our scales require minimal maintenance and can endure decades of daily use in the harshest environments. This longevity makes the total cost of ownership very reasonable, and gives processors a more sustainable choice. Marel is so confident in the durability of its scales that we now offer a seven-year warranty for some models.
The new Compact Grader – released in 2019 – is a flexible solution with up to eight gates, that can be combined with free-standing batching bins and a packing table. Its accurate weighing technology filters out disturbances and automatically adjusts the weighing process to ensure low giveaway. It features a user-friendly interface and Innova Food Processing Software ensures full control of the daily process by providing the right data and reports.
By automating bone removal with FleXicut, Marel helps you raise productivity and greatly improve product handling and yield. FleXicut systems now operate in more than 15 countries around the world, utilizing not just the machine’s precision X-ray bone detection and robotic water-jet cutters, but also FleXisort intelligent distribution to automatically allocate each of the various outputs to different product streams.
Since its release last year, the RoboBatcher Thermoformer has transformed the way processors pack and batch their products. The robot solution places portions into thermoform packs at up to 100-130 portions/minute with maximum efficiency and control. Using data from Marel’s Innova Food Processing Software, the RoboBatcher can automatically adjust processing to match order requirements.
Our I-Cut 130 PortionCutter features the latest in innovative cutting patterns and cuts fixed-weight and/or fixed-length portions so you can deliver custom-made portions directly to order. The TargetBatcher is an efficient and compact solution to most rework problems, combining a predetermined number of fresh or frozen products into an exact weight package.
Our MAJA Single Lane Skinner ensures fillets are skinned without any loss in quality. This skinner saves you time and money by helping you avoid any manual rework.
The M360 wide edge, linerless labeler employs the latest technology in flexible linerless labeling to ensure speed, ease of use and branding impact. Fully automatic, this high-speed labeler can apply standard wraparound linerless labels as well as C-wrap partial wraparound labels and top labels.
Maja, now part of Marel, has been producing highly reliable ice machines for almost 60 years. Together, we offer efficient, cost-saving and consistent ice quality.
Pairing a Marel Packing Station with Innova Packing software can shift your logistics to the next level. Our intelligent packing solution can manage advanced packing and labeling solutions with full inventory, order processing and palletizing features.
StreamLine provides real-time monitoring of each workstation for yield, throughput and quality, allowing production managers to make adjustments to ensure peak operating efficiency. StreamLine enables better product handling and reduces time spent on non-value-added activities.
Combined with Marel’s PaceInfeeder, our new manual deheading system enables you to automatically transfer salmon into the MS2730 Filleting Machine at a steady pace. After deheading at a circular table, operators slide the salmon onto a rotating conveyor that delivers it to the PaceInfeeder. The infeed is independent of the operator and maintains the optimal pace for every single fish in the correct position for the Filleting Machine.
Our industry-leading Filleting Machine MS 2730 features automatic back and belly trimming, to reduce the need for manual trimming, and automatically adjusts to various fish sizes.
The high-performance yet simple new MS 2610 Pinbone Remover is ideal for smaller businesses that don’t need the more advanced features of a standard pinboner.
Marel’s Quality Scanner scans salmon fillets for color, defects and weight. It checks the quality to enable automatic sorting of fillets based, for example, on whether they need further trimming, or if they have melanin spots or gaping. This quality check can be utilized both upstream and downstream to improve product quality.
Marel is a leading global supplier of salmon slicing equipment. From the I-Slice 3300 Retail Pack Slicer to the MSC 90 MA Multi Angle Slicer (silk cut), we produce slicers ranging from standard single units to large-scale customized systems for entire packing lines.
The I-Slice 3300 is designed for the production of high-quality retail packs of smoked sliced salmon, with extremely high accuracy on weight and count. Fillets are weighed and scanned before slicing to calculate how to achieve the best utilization of each fillet. The slicer can sort out head and tail pieces and collect them beneath the conveyor, and is highly productive because of how accurately it produces each batch.
The MSC 90 MA is the most flexible slicing machine on the market for salmon, trout and similar fish species with a capacity up to 90 cuts per minute. The slicing angle interval ranges from 8 to 70° and the slice thickness is adjustable between 2 and 250 mm. The cutting table design ensures good product support and fixation during the slicing process, and the infeed and outfeed conveyor belts ensure optimum handling of the fillets.
