The Marelec PORTIO B is a heavy duty fixed-weight portion cutter for bone-in pork/lamb chops. PORTIO B uses 3 camera/laser combinations, spaced at 120° to each other, to perfectly scan the volume around the irregular shape of bone in the meat. This transforms the shape of the loin into a 3D model. As it knows the density of the product, the intelligent software calculates where to cut the product to obtain the target weights.
Several specially designed features come as standard to keep the product in place during cutting. The gripper claws ensure that the loins move towards the cutting section without losing their position on the belt after being scanned while spikes on the belt prevent the loins from moving horizontally while cutting. The dedicated knife consists of a smooth section for cutting the softer meat part and a serrated section for cutting through the harder part of the bone.
For specific applications, especially designed options can be bolted on to the portioner at a later stage such as a dynamic density scale to calculate the correct density of each pork loin.
Portion Cutter Maintenance
The portioning machine can be fully opened and if desired, the conveyor belts can be removed for separate cleaning. Easily obtainable components have been selected to ensure easy maintenance. This ensures low maintenance costs. In addition, all motors and encoders are located outside the wet zone, ensuring a longer service life.
