“A semi-automatic batching system for packing and styling assorted products on fixed-weight trays.”
Processors, particularly in the Middle East, used to producing whole chicken only, see their market changing. Cut parts are gradually taking up 20 to 30% of the market. These processors need to produce fixed-weight products too. They don’t, however, want to invest a lot of money right away.
A fixed-weight collection
The Marel TargetBatcher combined with a prefill conveyor system and a gooseneck infeed conveyor is the ideal entry-level solution for assembling fixed-weight Family Packs. It is a semi-automatic batching system for packing and styling assorted products on fixed-weight trays. First, trays are manually pre-filled with random drumsticks, thighs and fillets to which the TargetBatcher adds the part necessary to bring the pack to its target weight.
