The QC-Vision Batcher is a new high speed weigh batcher with automatic quality control system and flow control. The system combines weighing with a revolutionary Vision technique, used for quality control. The weighing unit is connected to a unique packing system but can be used as a stand-alone unit for all types of batching and packing possibilities.
Aided by our Vision technique, speed controlled in-feeding conveyor belts provide accurate and fast weighing by scanning and identifying every individual in terms of size, weight and species. Automatic removal of unsuitable or damaged individuals increases the quality, accuracy and traceability of each batch. The adaptability of the weighing unit allows two different size grades of fish to be handled simultaneously. This is done by assigning a specific tag per batch for full traceability. Compared to traditional weighing/inspection systems, our breakthrough technology has high capacity, requires less floor space and is less demanding on manpower.
The newest feature of the QC-Weighing system is additional Vision units that can control the product flow from the grading machine and divide the product traffic between different QC-Vision Batching stations.
Once the product is weighed, it is automatically dispatched into a packing machine that forms the plastic bag and seals it before placing in a plastic tray on its way to the freezer. The bagging system has its own unique feature by allowing both brine/seawater injection in to the bags as well as offering semi-vacuum packaging for faster freezing and increased shelf life of product. Our bagging machine can use plastic made of non-transparent plastic witch provides UV protection against sunlight.
