Autofeeder for pelagic fish
Autofeeder is designed to reduce need for manpower for operating fish cutting machines with pocket conveyors. Equipment automatically delivers fish from hopper tank and distributes them into cutting machine pockets automatically, adjusting speed with the speed of cutting machine. PERUZA designed autofeeder is compatible with Cabinplant, SEAC, AB, VMK, Arenco, Baader and similar cutting machines.
- No workforce efficiency loss due to stroboscopic effect of passing-by pocket belt
- Up to 4 person economy per one cutting machine
- Fast payback time
- Easy operable
Tank of hopper elevator is filled with fish by operator. Elevating belt evenly brings the fish to the head- tail orientation, unit, further fish is proceeded to infeed units. Before infeeding, fish are singulated to avoid infeeding of several fish into one pocket. Singulated fish are passed into synchronizer. Synchronizer finds next free cell of the pocket conveyor to place the fish to be supplied to following device such as eheading, gutting, fileting machine.
