Camera-operated fish sorting system for existing filleting line: The Cabinplant vision system is designed for the surveillance of product infeed to Baader or VMK filleting machines. The system can be used for species such as herring and mackerel. The vision system controls the entire filleting machine, which means that it checks input and output - what goes in, comes out.
If not, the line will stop! The vision system will also try to optimize the amount of fish on the pocket conveyor belonging to the filleting machine. For instance if fish block the feeder to the filleting machine, the outlet gates of the feeder will be opened.
The vision system can be mounted on existing filleting machines with only very few changes to the existing line set-up.
The system operates by taking a picture of each fish to determine if it is the right species, the right size, whole or half fish, and whether it has been placed correctly on the conveyor prior to cutting, etc. Unwanted fish are rejected to waste or recirculated in the system if it was rejected due to incorrect positioning on the conveyor.
Option: In addition, the vision system can be provided with a dry feeding conveyor to increase feeding efficiency to the filleting machine.
