Cray Grading Reporting System

Being in the scale game, when a customer asked if we could negative weigh crayfish, we of course said “hells yes we can”.  Just for reference, weighing crayfish (as it turns out) is just like weighing a bag of already angry cats that you have just thrown water on. 

You may think I jest, but this would be one of the most difficult weighing problems we have yet encountered.  It even surprises me we managed to solve this one.  But solve it we did. 

In short, the system lets you weigh a bin of angry cats. As you tentatively place your hand into the bin and remove a cat, the weight and grade are displayed to the operator and recorded.  During the process you can downgrade from export to domestic, along with other categories such as cannibalised. 

More than enough information is collected to be able to pay Fisherman, export the correct grade, file reports to the Ministry and enable good control of quota. 

Bottomline. We took the stress out of grading and made it accurate and easy.
