Automation in meat processing offers a wide range of benefits
The food industry is booming. An ever increasing number of fresh and processed food products, snacks, ready meals, and convenience products have to be manufactured and packed. But it has become more difficult to find suitable or qualified staff. There is currently an acute lack of personnel in the meat processing sector. At the same time, hygiene and quality requirements are increasing. Automation solutions provide one way out of the dilemma. However, robots have been used to a very limited extent in the meat industry up to now.
Different packaging concepts and methods for preserving meat quality
There are different packaging concepts depending on the particular product and the processing stage within the added value chain. This means that different technology and packaging materials are required, when transport or maturation packs for example are being produced, from those required for retail packs for the end consumer. In addition to the high demands placed on hygiene and functionality, one of the most important objectives of a pack is to provide extended shelf life for the product.
Automatic loading of sausage and meat products into the packaging machine
Today practically every stage in the processing and packing of meat and sausage products can be automated. But different products such as sliced meats, sausages or fresh meat require individual solutions. In the following article there are descriptions of the possible options for feeding and loading products efficiently and gently into the pack cavities.
Perfect slicing results for fresh meat and processed products
Precise weight control in the portioning and slicing of meat or sausage products is one of the standard requirements in industrialised processing of fresh food. The slicing quality of the finished product is influenced significantly by the tempering and forming of the raw product, as well as by the slicing technology used. In this article we have compiled those aspects, which need to be taken into account with slicing, depending on the particular product and the outline conditions.
