Marel showcased its I-slice 3300 at the recent Seafood Processing Europe exhibition in Brussels. It highlighted the flexibility and efficiency of its production of salmon retail packs, which it claims can make batches of sliced salmon ready for packing with almost no manual handling.

As the slicer uses both scanning and pre-weighing of the fillets, it can produce packs (batches) of slices of very high accuracy.

A new application offers automatic sorting of the head and tail slices, which ensures low wastage of boards.

The slicer can produce fixed weight packs with fixed numbers of slices, such as 4 x 25g, or fixed weight packs with a variable number of slices. Therefore there is no manual handling of the slices, which significantly reduces the risk of bacterial contamination.

The operation of the I-slice is said to be easy and safe and settings can be made through the multilingual colour touch screen.

The high level of automation is designed to reduce the need for manual labour and increase product quality and packaging presentation and cut giveaway.
