Marel presents Q-Wing, a chicken wing part grading and distribution solution in response to demand from the market for higher wing yields and less manual labor. Q-Wing is such a system; integrated in the ACM-NT cut-up system, it comprises a selection of wing cutting modules, an IRIS visual grading system, sophisticated logistics and Innova controlling software.

In general, poultry processors see wing part sorting as a very labor-intensive process. Particularly in markets with high potential for wing products, the adequate assessment and distribution of wing parts will add enormous value. In such cases, Q-Wing is the ideal solution, automating many manual operations and increasing wing yields.

Once its IRIS camera system has visually assessed the quality of the wings in the line, Q-Wing knows exactly which parts of each left or right wing are A and B graded.
