Enhance your processing power and reduce labor costs with JBT’s high-tech RobotGrader system

At JBT, we have developed a reputation for confronting age-old challenges with modern solutions. Our highly sophisticated RobotGrader system simplifies and improves your secondary processing operations. With state-of-the-art automation technology and a wide variety of customizable configurations, you can reduce the need for costly manual labor and see greater yields, consistency, and end-product quality. 

From weighing, to measuring, to packing, and more, we have created solutions that are not only technologically advanced, but also supremely flexible. You can revamp your entire system with our machines or incorporate them into your existing line-up, streamlining your operation while significantly improving each step. 

Our solutions provide you with uniquely reliable results by introducing machine-vision systems and expansion-boosting software to help you create consistent and superior results, even with the most unpredictable initial products.

Maximum Output, Minimal Labor Requirements

Do you think your production line is performing at maximum efficiency? Think again.

Traditional belt graders and radial-style units do not save labor. JBT’s RobotGrader Automation system was designed and developed by our expert engineers with the specific purpose of reducing labor requirements within a small footprint while maximizing yields, improving accuracy, and enabling flexibility and convenience.

Unlike traditional systems, the RobotGrader employs targeted, advanced automation technology and necessitates only a few operators to refill trays and check the final package presentation. Depending on their existing systems, some processors can save over 50% in labor costs alone by switching to the RobotGrader Automation system, without sacrificing throughput or yield.

Features & Benefits

JBT’s RobotGrader Automation System gives you a leg up on the competition. Here’s how:

  • Reduced labor requirements – Thanks to our cutting-edge automation technology, the RobotGrader substantially reduces labor hours and costs. Some producers can cut labor costs by more than 50 percent.
  • Increased efficiency – By utilizing robotics and cutting labor requirements, the RobotGrader more accurately and efficiently weighs, measures, and packs your product, increasing yields and improving your bottom line.
  • Intelligent sorting – The machine is equipped with rapid, intelligent sorting capabilities. Combined with the built-in “bulk” option, this will dramatically improve your line’s throughput, delivering increased yields and maximizing efficiency.
  • Seamless integration – The RobotGrader is designed with flexibility in mind, seamlessly and intelligently integrating into your plant’s existing ERP or MPS system. 
  • Higher yields – The speed and efficiency of the RobotGrader system allow you to substantially increase your yields, all while saving valuable time and money on labor costs.
  • Customizable – The system is available with 1 to 4 robots to accommodate your capacity needs.

Step Into The Future With Intelligent, Accurate Automation

Automated technologies and systems empower food processors to alleviate – and in some cases eliminate – the long-standing challenges of employing manual laborers to produce standard finished goods from product that naturally varies. The RobotGrader automated system lessens “give-away” by astutely placing portions in tray or bin locations. With a modular design – available in 1 to 4 robots depending on your capacity needs – this versatile system meets or exceeds your throughput goals with ease. 

You can also harness the power of technology to improve your processes over time. With the available data analytics, you can understand each application and make adjustments to improve your bottom line. Additional onboard simulation software facilitates the quick and effective exploration of new track pack market opportunities. Technological convenience is at your fingertips.
