Increased pass rates and accuracy in a Shrimp Processing Facility.

The project

PSI was challenged with inadequate accuracy, quality, and cold-chain management in its shrimp-packaging processes.

The solution

PeakLogix designed and integrated a solution with vision-system sortation to detect and remove foreign objects, and sort for size, before automatically weighing and bagging products.

The results

75% increase in system capacity.

The new system processed shrimp at a rate of 3-500 per second. In seven hours, 250,000lbs of shrimp were bagged. The pass rate rose from 75% to 99.998%. The quality issue of foreign objects was eliminated, and cold-management restored.
