DMRI modtager innovationspræmie - 2015
DMRI har netop modtaget en sølvmedalje for 'Bedste Innovation' på den internationale Anuga-messe i Tyskland. Præmien er givet for den nyudviklede 3D-afsværingsrobot.
Komitéens motivation for tildeling af sølvmedaljen til DMRI:
"The derinding of pork loin is a widely established practice in the meat industry. Ideally the fat should be trimmed off in one piece, leaving behind a uniform layer on the loin. The meat industry is highly focused on costs and yield. The latter has been dramatically improved thanks to the new robot developed by the Danish Meat Research Institute.
It‘s important to remember that meat is not a homogeneous product. In fact it varies greatly in terms of size, composition and fat content. To accommodate this variability, the new robot produces a precise 3D picture of each individual loin and calculates where the fat meets the meat.
A patented cutting system consisting of eight knives then automatically trims the meat. The process is extremely quick: the robot takes just four seconds to do the trimming. The result is a pork loin with a uniform layer of fat, regardless of the meat profile, and a high-quality piece of fat. This greatly increases yields in comparison with existing methods and eliminates the costs involved with trimming by hand."
