Immediately after the chilling tunnel the products are available for weighing in the distribution line, to determine their ulterior presentation.
Accurate weighing at high speed for optimum selection
With processing capacities continually on the increase, the need for accurate weighing in a split second is crucial. Weight is an important basis for quality grading and high weighing accuracy leads to a lower giveaway.
Weight information can be combined with automatic vision based quality assessment (see IRIS). Every whole product is ‘tagged’ with this quality information and can be followed downstream, to determine its optimum allocation according to specification, like the selection of A-quality calibrated whole products, or a cut-up or deboning system.
