Title
(EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR AUTOMATICALLY CUTTING FOOD PRODUCTS TO PREDETERMINED WEIGHT OR SHAPE
(FR) PROCEDE ET APPAREIL POUR COUPER AUTOMATIQUEMENT DES PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES SELON UN POIDS OU UNE FORME PREDETERMINES
Abstract
(EN)
Food products, such as fish fillets, chicken fillets and many others, are cut to predetermined portion sizes of equal weight and volume, or to predetermined profile shapes, by moving the food products on a conveyor, (12, 22, 34, 46, 60) scanning them as they move through a shadow line (86) with a camera (72) capable of providing a programmed computer (96) with dimensional data, and utilizing the computer to control the operation of a plurality of high pressure water jet cutters (98, 130, 152, 152', 160, 160', 188, 188', 190, 190', 192, 192') to cut the food products to reduce sizes as dictated by the computer program.
(FR)
Des produits alimentaires tels que des filets de poisson, de poulet ou autres, sont coupés en portions prédéterminées de poids et de volume identiques, ou des formes prédéterminées, en faisant avancer les produits alimentaires sur une transporteuse (12, 22, 34, 46, 60), en les analysant et en les explorant lorsqu'ils passent par une ligne d'ombre (86) à l'aide d'une caméra (72) qui peut fournir des données à un ordinateur programmé (96), en utilisant l'ordinateur pour commander le fonctionnement d'une pluralité de dispositifs de coupe à jet d'eau à haute pression (98, 130, 152, 252', 160, 160', 188, 188', 190, 190'), pour couper les produits alimentaires à des dimensions dictées par le programme d'ordinateur.
