Cabinplant reduces give-away with new multi batcher

Cabinplant launches a new multi batcher that reduces the give-away by four times compared to any other machine on the market. An accurate weighing technology ensures that the portions are packed in an optimal combination, thus enabling fish manufacturers to deliver portions that meet legal requirements and reduces the give-away to an absolute minimum.

“The weighing machines that are on the market at the moment typically offer a tolerance of plus/minus 200 grams and the extra amount above the portion size is a pure give-away of profits for the fish manufacturers. Depending on the price of the fish per kilo, this can add up to a considerable amount,” explains Henning Ingemann Hansen, R&D Director at Cabinplant. 

At SPG 2014, Cabinplant will present the 2nd generation multi batcher with a new design and improved weighing software that significantly reduces the give-away compared to any other conventional weighing machine on the market.

New weighing technology
The multi batcher is designed to make a portion out of four weighed partial portions instead of merely having one weighing hopper. The machine automatically combines the partial portions to provide the optimal and best possible batch weight. The principle of combinatorial weighing known from Cabinplant’s successful multihead weighing machines results in higher accuracy. Naturally, the portions conform to requirements set forth in the European Directives.

“The result is that fish manufacturers are able to meet the requirements of the law and at the same time minimize the amount of mackerel or herring that is given away for free,” explains Henning Ingemann Hansen.  The multi batcher is also suitable for other products, such as chicken, pork and beef.

Easy cleaning
The machine from Cabinplant is designed to make the cleaning process easy and less time-consuming and is constructed from non-corrosive stainless steel. Cabinplant has developed the multi batcher in two sizes so that is has the capacity to handle even the largest mackerels and portion sizes from 10 to 30 kilos.
