Vision Grading

Fast and accurate assessment of anatomic parts

High-tech devices such as visual assessment systems with high-speed cameras are gaining ground in the poultry processing sector, always with the aim of responding to changing food chain requirements. In addition, such devices help produce more efficiently, more effectively, more sustainably and differently.

Poultry processing companies are running increasingly higher capacities, with the demand for reliable insight into the quality of the incoming products, preferably in the earliest stage possible. For a better carcass balance, it is undesirable to downgrade an entire product due to one damaged piece. That’s why poultry processors look for ways to determine the quality per chicken part. For this, Marel Poultry has developed the computer-controlled Stork IRIS optical system. IRIS stands for Intelligent Reporting, Inspection & Selection.
