In a modern poultry plant, each bird can be processed in many ways depending on market needs. Sales orders place great demands on production planning to optimize the use of each bird and satisfy customers.It is a necessity to know each bird’s characteristics and distribute accordingly. The ClassifEYE® vision system integrates with our distribution software to guide the whole bird through further processes and ensure the best use of birds to supply multiple markets.
By integrating our Weigh Transfer 520 and ClassifEYE® vision system into the processing line, valuable weight and quality information is obtained about the whole bird and associated parts. Weight and quality classification can be used to distribute each bird to downstream processes: whole bird packing, standard cut-up, deboning or food service. It ensures the best use of each bird and it allows a single line processor to supply multiple markets.
Once a mechanical separation of the birds has been made and the cameras have free access to each bird’s surface, our four-camera solution provides you with a 360° view of bird quality. The two side cameras will detect wing pit bruises and injuries on both sides of the bird and prevent blind spots during defect detection.
