Marel is using this year’s Seafood Processing Global, taking place as part of the Seafood Global Expo in Brussels next month, to present a range of innovative additions to proven applications, with the focus on high product quality and improved processing performance. Marel will exhibit advanced equipment and software solutions that enable whitefish and salmon processors to optimise yield, throughput and product quality.
Marel will continue to demonstrate the revolutionary technology of the FleXicut automatic pinbone detection and removal system with live demonstrations and the introduction of a new Innova production control software. This new generation of processing technology is already in operation at FISK Seafood, Norway Seafoods, Jakob Valgeir and Vísir. The system enables these producers to greatly reduce labour, increase yield and improve product quality
Marel is about to introduce its new Innova FleXicut software. This easy-to-use software module can manage and control all FleXicut actions from a single platform, including setting up activities to define which raw material enters the machine and how it should be trimmed and portioned. The software collects production data on all pieces and portions in real time, giving users an effective tool to analyse and optimise processes.
The company’s new MS 1355 Salmon Skinner will be in the spotlight. This single lane skinner operates head first using the same technique as its double lane counterpart MS 1710. This method greatly reduces manual handling and helps maintain the best raw material quality possible in the skinning process.
Marel will demonstrate a new infeed system for the MS2730 filleting machine that can handle salmon and trout in sizes down to 1.50kg. The new infeed system enables processors of smaller fish to process their raw material with automatic technology.
Marel is also unveiling a new service programme for the MS 2730 filleting machine and the FleXicut whitefish pinboning and portioning system. Preventive maintenance is at the heart of the new programme, offering a structured way to reduce the risk of unexpected breakdowns and maintain maximum performance.
