500th SensorX sale signed at IPPE 2016

Since its launch in 2006, the success of the SensorX bone detection system has snowballed, and now 500 pieces have been sold around the world. At the IPPE show in Atlanta, US based poultry processor Mountaire Farms officially signed the purchase agreement of the 500th SensorX.
 

We keep choosing SensorX because they are easy to operate for our employees and they give us reliable bone detection so that we can pass this quality on to our customers.

Marel’s SensorX set a new standard in bone detection, making bone risk no longer an inevitable part of poultry processing. The machine’s advanced sensing technology and software development give the SensorX bone and contaminant detection capabilities that are unprecedented among automatic bone detection systems.

No wonder the SensorX has remained the market leader in bone detection, giving food processors much greater peace of mind in providing a safer, more valuable product.
 

Mountaire Farms

With operations in Maryland, Delaware, North Carolina and Arkansas, and products reaching markets regionally, nationally and internationally, Mountaire Farms’ poultry business model is to adhere to the highest standards of quality control and operational excellence. They have been Marel customers for years and bought their first SensorX in 2006 for breast meat bone detection. The milestone 500th was purchased to be used on whole deboned legs.
 

Quality passed on

“Currently we have 11 SensorX machines. This will be our 12th with another to come after that,” said Mark Chranowski, Vice President at Mountaire Farms. “We keep choosing SensorX because they are easy to operate for our employees and they give us reliable bone detection so that we can pass this quality on to our customers.”
