Information

Increased levels of animal welfare

In the supply chain, handling remains humane at all times. During transport and in the plant, the birds are placed in spacious trays. The advanced SmartStack module — consisting of a revolutionary loadable pallet with a variable number of trays — gives high attention to animal welfare, while also boosting efficiency. Flip-over side panels give all-round access to remove birds in distress, while the pallet doubles as an additional tray.

Environmentally beneficial

Due to the ingenious design of this module, loading capacity increases dramatically (up to 38%), while bird headroom extends to an industry-leading height. This means fewer truck movements will be required, subsequently leading to dramatically reduced levels of carbon dioxide being emitted.

Enhanced traceability

The ATLAS system runs with the latest Marel user interface, and connects with Marel’s Innova Food Processing Software. This is the starting point for a plant-wide tracking and tracing system.

"A speed of 15,000 bph doesn't drive the components to extremes. On the contrary, they are perfectly capable of keeping up with the speed and control of the transfer process."
