Overview

The ATLAS (Advanced Technology Live bird Arrival System) live bird handling system features a technologically advanced SmartStack module, consisting of a revolutionary loadable pallet with a variable number of trays (mostly three or four) on top of it. The SmartStack module not only gives high attention to animal welfare, but also increases efficiency considerably. Thanks to the ingenious design of this module, loading capacity can increase up to 38%, which means fewer truck movements and less CO2 emission. At the same time, more headroom is available per bird.

Lifting live bird handling to new standards
 

Animal-friendly

In the supply chain, handling remains animal-friendly all the time; during transport and in the plant the birds stay calmly in their spacious trays. ATLAS seamlessly integrates with CAS SmoothFlow stunning; trays are gently moved through the system.
Only after having lost consciousness, the broilers are shackled to enter the process.
 

Hygiene

As the trays and pallets don't have a frame nor any blind spots, they can be submitted to a thorough cleaning in the specifically conceived washing device. After that, pallets and trays are restacked to compose complete SmartStack modules again, ready for a next round.

The ATLAS system runs with the latest Marel user interface and connects with the Innova production control platform. This can be the starting point of a plant-wide tracking and tracing system.
