Einhamar Seafood and Marel signed the agreement on 1 July 2020 and installation is scheduled for November.

Einhamar Seafood to Install the FleXicut System

  (ICELAND, 7/27/2020)

Einhamar Seafood has purchased the Marel FleXicut system, to be installed at the company’s processing plant in Grindavík. With FleXicut, Einhamar will raise levels of automation in its production, improving both its processes as well as final product.

The new system will automate two vital processes for the company—detection and portioning. X-ray technology detects pin bones, then water jets cut the fillet to remove the bones and knives portion the fillets according to customer orders. The FleXicut system includes the FleXisort distribution system, and Einhamar Seafood will also install the FleXitrim pre-trimming flowline.

 
Owners Stefán Kristjánsson and Helena Sandra Antonsdóttir say the FleXicut and FleXitrim will help them meet high demand, particularly in summer when the workload is heaviest. “Our aim is to increase our production capacity, reduce overtime work and increase yield,” says Stefán.

Marel and Einhamar Seafood have worked in close partnership since 2005. This latest installation marks the third Marel system Einhamar Seafood install at their processing plant and the FleXicut and FleXitrim will be fully integrated with Einhamar Seafood’s existing Marel systems. The machinery is controlled by Marel’s Innova Food Processing Software, which displays processing data in real time, giving managers full overview and control over production.

Combined, these solutions boost product yield, quality and safety, which will add major value for Einhamar Seafood. The system also answers the company’s call for sustainable processing, as flexible cutting patterns by FleXicut and the interconnected software minimize waste with every fillet.

General Manager Alda Agnes Gylfadóttir says she looks forward to serving customers more efficiently throughout the year. “The throughput of the plant will be more even, we will minimize fluctuations and improve overall efficiency in our production. If the system allows us to improve yield and capacity while reducing overtime work, then we can call the latest addition to our processing plant a success!“ she says.
