College or Research Centre

College of Science & Engineering

Summary of Project

“The fish processing industry applies a small number of automation technologies compared to other industries. Their number should be increased despite automated food processing problems and hygiene requirements. Automation and implementation of robots can reduce production costs and improve product quality. The issues of designing automation systems for the fishing industry are analyzed. Automatic control systems can control quality of fish and fish products. Automated systems receive, freeze, sort, cut, wash, salt, dry, smoke, press, cool, package and store fish and fish products. Modern technological tools are equipped with automatic control systems. Some of them include specialized automation and robotic units equipped with microprocessor control systems. Application and implementation of automation systems for processing fish are described.” (1)
