“I am convinced this is the new standard for our industry and will replace roller grading".
"The technology fundamentally changes my business and the grading process.”

The patented automatically-fed SMART Sorter scans each and every shrimp in a lot. The machine uses laser-imaging and computer vision algorithms to inspect, grade, and sort shrimp.

Fast Adoption Worldwide.  We've seen rapid adoption of this technology since its introduction worldwide. Currently we have customer in India, Vietnam, Ecuador, Thailand, and the Gulf of Mexico. We have several customers with more that one unit.

BUSINESS CASE : The Hidden Problem with Roller Graders.  Read more

Ananda / Godavari

When I visited the Laitram facility in New Orleans, the immense benefits of the laser scanning grader were immediately obvious to me.  The two machines I initially purchased now grade the vast majority of the material at two facilities.  After using the machines for 3 months, it is now impossible for me to go back to roller grading.  As a result, I have placed an order for a 3rd unit.  I am convinced this is the new standard for our industry and will replace roller grading. 

  1. We can precisely grade the target average count with the desired BS ratio. 

  2. We can increase the percentage (%) of the target size that we intend to upgrade.

  3. Easy to use, save time, and also can reduce labor.

After analyzing the results and seeing the enormous potential to improve our operations, we placed an order for 4 machines. After seeing the first 2 machines run, we knew that we had made the right decision, and rush ordered the 5th machine.
The upgrades economics are exactly "Payback less than one year" We are beginning to explore ways to improve decision making related to buying, processing, and selling. The Laitram SMART Sorter has been reliable, and Laitram has been a committed partner to help us transition to this new technology. 
We are confident that the Laitram SMART Sorter will be the standard for shrimp grading globally.
