Weighing and packing equipment specialist Ishida Europe has extended its range of solutions for poultry, meat and fish packaging with a unique system that improves yields and efficiencies in the packing of fresh food pieces.

The new RobotGrader combines weighing and pick-and-place technologies to grade products of varying weight and pack them to a fixed weight straight into the tray.  The system reduces giveaway to less than 1% per pack and can correctly place and orientate the pieces, at speeds of up to 320 pieces per minute.


Depending on the model, the RobotGrader can handle two, three or four different tray types at the same time, and direct unsuitable pieces to integrated bulk bins. A hygienic construction enables effective wash down and easily movable tray guides mean product changeovers are fast and simple.

“With modern processing lines able to operate at extremely high speeds, the filling of two or more pieces into fixed weight packs has been one area that has until now resisted efficient automation,” explains Ulrich Nielsen, Ishida Europe’s Director for Business Solutions. “Using proven technology, the Robotgrader solves this problem to deliver near-continuous accurate process packing.”

The RobotGrader can integrate easily with existing factory ERP and control systems, alongside other Ishida equipment.
