TRANSFORMING FOOD PROCESSING AT IPPE 2020

TRANSFORMING FOOD PROCESSING AT IPPE 2020

It’s once again time for the IPPE exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia! 28 to 30 January 2020, Marel Poultry will focus on automation advancements and how we can help transform food processing in all aspects of the factory. We will also demonstrate the most advanced live bird handling system currently available, which pays close attention to animal well-being, sustainability, hygiene, and product quality.

The 2020 International Production & Processing Expo, organized by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association and North American Meat Institute, will take place in Atlanta, Georgia USA, at the World Congress Center from 28 to 30 January.

At our booth, you can learn about the entire range of Marel Poultry processing solutions, from live bird handling up to packing and labeling. All of Marel Poultry’s innovations are driven by the passion we have for transforming food processing.

We will also be displaying solutions and equipment for meat processing - more info here.

A WORLD’S FIRST - AMF-I HEAVY-DUTY FILLETING

Today’s broilers are getting bigger and heavier. This is an unstoppable trend with quite some consequences for poultry processors. They have to adapt their systems to heavier weights and larger products such as breast fillets. Marel anticipated this trend by developing its AMF-i HD solution, an intelligent breast cap filleting system suitable for today’s and future weight ranges. Compared to a regular AMF-i, AMF-i HD’s processing range at the top end shifts upwards. The heavy-duty system incorporates AMF’s high intelligence, including the measuring system, to which all downstream module settings will adapt. In this way, it can cope with a wide variety of uncalibrated breast cap weights. IPPE will be the occasion for Marel to show the AMF-i in public for the very first time.

FHF-XB FRONT HALF FILLETING

Marel’s portfolio now offers breast filleting solutions for virtually every weight range. In addition to the AMF-i and AMF-i HD solutions, the FHF-XB system ensures that fillets of even very heavy birds can be processed. Unlike AMF-i, FHF-XB takes front halves, not breast caps, as the starting point to harvest breast fillets and tenderloins. It’s also a fully automated, modular solution that can flexibly be configured according to the processor’s needs, instead of using a pre-fixed set-up. Front halves stay in-line in the overhead conveyor all the time, fillets and tenderloins are neatly released on a belt.

At Marel’s IPPE booth, the FHF Fillet Harvester serves as an example to show how the entire FHF-XB deboning line goes about.

ANIMAL WELL-BEING

We will also have on display our revolutionary ATLAS live bird handling system. The technologically advanced SmartStack module not only gives high attention to animal well-being but also increases efficiency considerably. Combined with the CAS SmoothFlows stunning solution, a well-proven, multiphase concept that enhances animal well-being and product quality, processors have a solution that benefits everyone.

ROBOTIZATION AND DIGITIZATION

Robotization and digitization of the poultry industry are on everybody’s lips today. Marel’s Innova Food Processing Software platform turns poultry processing into a data-driven process. Sensors on virtually every machine in the line, together with weighers, scanners and vision graders gather all kinds of data to enable traceability, production control, quality control and performance monitoring (OEE). By linking together virtually all machines in the plant, Innova empowers processors in their digital transformation journey to get the most out of their operations.
