The grading of eggs is required by law in many countries. Furthermore, eggs are graded for the convenience of consumers. A nice uniform size of eggs in a consumerpack is preffered over a collection of different sizes. The grading itself is based on the weight of eggs. Next to the weight, also the quality is very important. During the grading process eggs with defects (so called offgrades) are taken out of the consumer products. The offgrades can be used for different purposes and are often referred to as "industry eggs". These eggs will find their way depending on the quality to for instance bakeries,petfood or pharmaceutical industry.
Moba offers a whole range of egg grading machines. There are 2 families in grading equipment: handpackers and automatic graders. Automatic graders will ultimately place the eggs fully automatically in a tray or into a consumerpack while with handpackers only the grading is automated and the actual packing action is done manually.
