Those in the meat processing industry know and understand the inherent dangers of band saws and poultry cutters. Hollymatic and its engineering team have come up with a solution that raises the bar on worker safety. The Defender 4000 Band Saw and Defender PC1500 Poultry Cutter use state-of-the-art technology to recognize potential risk to the operator and stop the blade to avoid unnecessary injury and reduce amputations.
New equipment innovations like automatic casing loading, stabilizing systems that eliminate bent horns and precision line control are now helping processors eliminate stops and starts and operate continuously at the best pace to optimize smokehouse loading efficiency. Intelligent emulsifying and real time process monitoring improve quality, near-perfect weight within very tight parameters is now attainable, and filling department hygiene can now be safer than ever.
Meat and poultry processors are under pressure to reduce foreign matter contamination. Even the best detection technology will not prevent this. To reduce product loss and risk of recall, processors need to find ways to address the root causes of this pervasive problem. Safari Belting Systems, Inc. is designing new belting materials better suited to today’s processing environments making a positive impact on food safety performance.
As the demand for meat snacks continues to grow, processors are challenged to avoid the most common production pitfalls. Find out the two most common processing challenges and how superior technology and equipment design addresses them while maximizing high-speed throughput and high-quality end products to bolster your bottom line. Part 3 of this series identifies problems and provides solutions for processors.
When it comes to meat processing operations, inspection systems play an important role in both food safety and food quality assurance. Both are essential for a brand’s success. However, product recalls can interfere with that success, which can be costly to a processor’s bottom line – both in loss of sales and damage to a company’s reputation. Taking steps to prevent recalls, such as installing effective inspection systems, can protect meat processing operations now and in the future. Learn what options exist in inspection and detection systems.
