Title:
A PIN BONE REMOVAL SYSTEM
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2016/008926
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
This invention relates to a pin bone removal system adapted to automatically removing a pin bone area of a fish fillet when conveyed by a conveyor after undergoing a cutting process, where the pin bone area has been cut from the remaining part of the fish fillet. The system includes a conveyor system having at least two side by side arranged conveyor belts extending from a first end to a second end. The first end acts as a receiving end where the fish fillet is received with the cut pin bone area. The internal arrangement of the side by side arranged conveyor belts is such that at the first end the conveyor belts are substantially adjacent to each other and at a position downstream from the first end the side by side arranged conveyor belts are spaced apart. The transversal position of the fish fillet in relation to the first end is adjusted such that when the fish fillet arrives at the downstream position the position of the cut pin bone area is such that the cut pin bone area falls through the space while the remaining part of the fish fillet remains on the first and/or second conveyor belts.
