A partner in the latest technology
Marel has been happy to play a significant role in the Industry’s rapid growth and all major Marel poultry processing systems are now in everyday operation in Poland. GP live bird handling systems, the first of which was installed over ten years ago, are in use with a number of Polish processors. The system’s containers have become a common sight on Poland’s roads.
The Nuova automatic evisceration and giblet harvesting system has established an enviable reputation for itself, both for the clean, hygienic way in which it works and for its ability to harvest high yield, high-quality edible giblets with a minimum of labor.
Marel equipped plants are also using the very latest IRIS computer controlled quality assessment systems and the latest SmartWeigher product weighing technology. Together with Innova PDS software these valuable tools help processing plant management make the best possible return from each product.
Automatic line to line transfer, Marel end-of-line equipment and Marel software give full traceability throughout the process.
Marel’s breast deboning leads the field
As elsewhere in the EU, Poland’s processors cut and debone a high percentage of what they produce. Large volumes of breast fillet are consumed domestically and also exported.
Stork breast deboning systems have truly become the industry standard in Poland. The market boasts well over thirty AMF breast cap filleting systems and a number of FHF-XB high-yield front half de-boning systems. Some plants boast up to four AMF systems working side by side with the capacity to fillet close to 15,000 breast caps per hour.
Last grams recovered
Although most Polish AMF systems are producing skinless half fillets with tenderloins attached, the system will produce a large variety of other breast fillet products, whole or half, skin on or skinless. If required, tenderloins can be harvested separately and their tendons trimmed.
Recently installed AMF systems include breast tendon and cartilage harvesting modules. These allow the recovery of potentially valuable cartilage as well as those last grams of meat and tendon from the keel bone.
Polish users are enthusiastic about the system’s latest PLC controls, which allow different module settings to be stored for different breast cap weights. These make light work of adjusting the system when weights change. This is done by activating a menu on the touch screen. All module settings are changed automatically and filleting can restart immediately.
Users can, therefore, be sure of hitting the highest standards of yield, quality and product presentation regardless of the weight of breast cap being handled.
