PIP Innovations - D-Blade High-speed robotic cutter
The potato waste stream can be upgraded by D-Blade by removing blacks spots from rejected produce and returning the good product back to production, significantly reducing waste and increasing yield.
The basic unit comes with two delta robots, halving/quartering functionality and connectivity for performance and maintenance. When used for removing black spots, D-Blade will significantly reduce the waste stream.
Capacity (delta robots) and functionality (different blades and or software) can be added.
