In many poultry slaughter houses, whole birds are graded according to their quality which will determine if the bird will be cut into parts or if it will be processed as a whole. In other processing facilities, whole birds are weighed dynamically. They are then sorted into tight weight ranges and batched into fixed weights or fixed-quantities per box. 

The grader or sorter can be configured in many ways, such as the number of grading stations, or single, double, or triple lines with customized batching bins. MARELEC has built up a lot of knowledge and experience over the years to offer the perfect grading solution.
