Description of the criteria that will be assessed (in the prioritized order):

Feeding system “Autofeeder” with conveyors

Description and application:

The fish auto feeder is specifically designed for fish cutting machines with pocket conveyors. The auto feeder makes the HGT process faster and easier and considerably reduces or even completely removes the need for manual work on food processing factories. Reduced labor costs come from the innovative automatization of work, as one auto feeder’s operator replaces four to five manual workers.

The machine is suitable for processing various kinds of pelagic fish such as sardines, herrings, mackerels and others. The fish auto feeder, attached to a pocket type fish cutting machine, produces up to 220-250 fish per minute depending on fish size and species.

Operating principle:

Tank of hopper elevator is filled with fish by operator. Elevating belt evenly brings the fish to the head- tail orientation, unit, further fish is proceeded to infeed units. Before infeeding, fish are singulated to avoid infeeding of several fish into one pocket. Singulated fish are passed into synchronizer. Synchronizer finds next free cell of the pocket conveyor to place the fish to be supplied to following device such as deheading, gutting, fileting machine.

Confidentiality and the freedom of information principle

After the procurement has been terminated the principle of public access to official records applies. This means that all documents related to the procurement process become public and may be disclosed to anyone who requests access to them. Exceptions may only be made if there is any specific reason to believe that the Tenderer may suffer damage if the information is disclosed.

If you have information that you feel is of such nature, your tender shall include precise details of which information should remain confidential, and how you would suffer damage in case of the public disclosure of this information. Chalmers will evaluate your request and determine whether confidentiality in accordance with Swedish law may be deemed to apply.
