Overview

IRIS, the Intelligent Reporting, Inspection & Selection system, evaluates whole products and its seven anatomic portions at multiple locations in the processing plant. In the ACM-NT cut-up system, IRIS is an interesting application where an ACM-NT cut-up system also serves as a whole bird selection line. In this way, IRIS NT is used to identify and release products for sale whole.
 

Just one second is sufficient for decision-making
 

Fast selection

With no separate distribution line available, products pass directly from chilling to the cut-up department. In the cut-up line, IRIS performs its task just before products will enter the ACM-NT modules. IRIS can assess them within a second. That is sufficient for decision-making about their destination.

When a B-grade part is detected, such as a broken leg, the product passes on to the cut-up modules. A-grade products are discharged from the line before they attain the cut-up modules, destined to be sold as whole products.
 

How it works

The system consists of a digital camera, LED lighting and advanced recognition software.

It uses shape, color and texture to detect defects such as broken wings, red and blue bruises, fecal stains, remaining feathers and skin damage. IRIS can be used on both water and air chilled products.

Recognition software processes the images received from the camera and allocates a quality grade to each portion of the product.
