The autopacker for vertical cans is designed as a multi-purpose packing machine for food products; the machine can be used on modern fish processing factories that seek higher performance and lower costs.
The autopacker is suitable for processing different types of fresh, quality frozen, and defrosted pelagic fishes: Sardines, Mackerel, Herring, etc. The auto packer machine handles fish processing from A to Z – it automatically receives, de-heads, guts, and cans fish
into vertical cans. The machine can also be used for canning various long products, not only fish but also asparagus, cucumbers, sausages, etc. On average, the autopacker produces up to 120 cans per minute and works with Jitney, Tall, and Buff can types.
The auto packer machine can be complemented with a 3-cut device that cuts fish to the appropriate size. For example, if the length of a de-headed fish is 15 cm and the can is only 10 cm long, the device will cut these extra 5 cm off.
The machine that performs all steps of fish processing, from heading to canning, only needs four operators. This approach to production reduces or even completely removes the need for a workforce and reduces labor costs. Other benefits of autopacker include clean and precise cuts, low water consumption, and a higher yield ratio for more efficient and economical fish processing.

Types of cans used
Jitney cans, Tall can, Buff can
Sardine, mackerel or similiar
Condition of fish to achieve max capacity
Fresh or quality frozen and defrosted. Bad quality fish will reduce capacity and increase error percentage
Length of fish

8800 x 5600 mm
Up to 120 products can be processed within a minute with only four operators involved, thanks to the extensive module system.
The unique design allows for the equipment size to be one of the most compact in the market – the machine takes only 6100 x 1750 mm of floorspace! Beyond the dimensions, the thoughtful design allows for highly efficient use of space in smaller factories and various production lines with previously limited capacity.
Precise calculators in our 3D dimension recognition and weight calculation unit reduce the giveaway of the product and increase the line capacity. The final weight range in packaging and current line setup can be adjusted in a smart, easy-to-use interface.
The easy-to-use, intuitive user interface allows for the weight range to be adjusted, and this machine can be adapted for various products ranging from fresh or frozen meat and fish to vegetables and fruit.
Firstly, the products arrive onto the main product conveyor one by one in 1, 2 or more lanes.
Then the product is passed through 3D dimension recognition and weight calculation unit.
The program sends a signal to the robot with appropriate gripper to pick up and place the product into a tray or box to reach a set final weight range in packaging that can be adjusted in the user interface.
