This case-ready packing line features efficient automatic vision-controlled portioning, and semi-automatic packing of sliced meat into fixed weight packs.

The line is ideal for simple styling patterns, such as flat packing, shingled style or upright styling and is well suited for medium to high volume dedicated production of few or single stock keeping units (SKUs) per day.

The system is intended for cutting and packing boneless meat to fixed weight packing by using the Marel I-Cut 55 portioning machine (or other Marel portioning machine) and a manual pace packing line.

The portioning machine cuts the meat primal into a desired preprogrammed slice weight. The cut slices are conveyed onto a pace packing line placed immediately after the portion cutter.

Trays are automatically de-nested onto a tray conveyor at conform speed with the slices from the portion cutter. One operator counts the slices into batches, as well as removes any trim and off-cuts from the slice stream. The next operators take the slices and styles them in the trays.

Completed trays pass through a checkweigher that registers the tray weight, the accumulated lot average weight, the weight deviations and the acceptance rate.

Trays that do not comply with the weight specifications are automatically pushed away from the conveyor to a rework table where an operator will adjust the trays before placing them back into the product stream. Trays that meet specifications will be conveyed to the tray sealer.
