Ishida Europe Ltd. (Sweden) - Weighing and packing equipment specialist Ishida Europe has formed a partnership with Swedish company Robotgrader to further enhance its bespoke packing line solutions for fresh produce including meat and poultry.
The Robotgrader combines weighing and pick and place technologies to grade products of varying weight and pack them to a fixed weight straight into the pack. Product is weighed on a belt weigher and the weight is calculated with previously sorted products to find the best combination. The product is then picked and placed into the appropriate pack.
Robotgrader products will now be available to be integrated into Ishida fresh food packing lines alongside other Ishida equipment, including X-ray systems, tray sealers, seal testers and checkweighers, to provide bespoke solutions, tailored to individual customer requirements.
Ulrich Nielsen, Ishida Europe’s Director for Business Solutions comments: “We have already worked with Robotgrader on a number of individual projects so this partnership is the ideal extension to our existing relationship. It will enable us to offer our fresh food customers further flexibility in the design and installation of packing lines that deliver excellent accuracy, product quality and presentation.”
“We are very pleased to be working with Ishida Europe,” confirms Sverre Stenbom, Managing Director of Robotgrader. “Fresh food producers will now benefit from integrated technically-advanced and quality- and profit-enhancing solutions.”
Robotgrader will also continue to offer standalone equipment and solutions.
