Automatic removal of pin bone and portion cutting

The Valka Cutter automatically removes pin bones and cuts to the desired portions. The machine uses combination of an X-Ray and 3D image processing system together with robot controlled water jets to locate and cut pin bone and portions with great accuracy.

The system analyzes each fillet and cuts highly uniform portions in relation to size, weight and thickness according to your specification.

Multiple cutting patterns or programs can be defined and different size of fillets can be cut into different patterns.
