Lobster Grading System

Burkharts Fisheries now Fiordland Lobster, needed to automate their Inward/Outward Grading and Processing system to improve quality control and efficiency.

This project was interesting as it involved negative grading where a live fish is removed from a bin and the grade is displayed for that fish. It also took all the hassle out of peak pressure times when speed and accuracy were key.

Installation included 2 industrial touchscreen PCs connected to waterproof scales so the staff could easily operate the inward grading process without any written documentation. All facets of the process had to be included such as downgrades, export and domestic markets etc.

At the Dispatch area the industrial touchscreen PC was installed with scale and label printer to enable fast accurate dispatch of poly bins to market.

Reporting became instant and accurate, this gave the fishers up to date quota management when they needed it, plus enabled accurate stock control for sales and marketing.

The ability to integrate the reporting into other company software ware packages  has given this product real appeal to other operators.
