At our booth you can learn about the entire range of Marel Poultry processing solutions, from live bird handling up to packing and labeling.
Automated Nugget Line
We will focus on our newest solution for automated whole muscle nugget production. The integrated system consists of an I-Cut 122 which cuts strips, discharged by a SpeedSort. Next in line is the SingleFeed to singulate the strips. The brand new Marel StripPositioner rotates incoming strips and tenders 90 degrees and spaces them appropriately so they are in the perfect position for the second I-Cut 122. This portion cutter will then take care of optimized nugget portioning. This automated cubing solution is truly “A Cut Above” and saves considerable labor.
Marel Poultry will also have on display, for the first time in the US, the Stork ATLAS live bird handling system. The technologically advanced SmartStack module not only gives high attention to animal welfare but also increases efficiency considerably. At our booth, the ATLAS system will be combined with a CAS SmoothFlow controlled atmosphere stunning application, to show the harmonious integration of both solutions.
AMF-i and Thigh Fillet System
Special attention will be given to the Stork AMF-i intelligent breast filleting solution. The Stork AMF is a well proven solution with hundreds of installs worldwide. The latest AMF-i generation is a flexible filleting system which consistently produces high yield. To make life easier for poultry processors, Marel Poultry has added even more intelligence to the process. Processors no longer have to manually select a product size related recipe, as module settings adjust themselves automatically to the measured product dimensions.
Another highlight is the Stork Thigh Fillet System. This unique, fully inline thigh deboning solution produces retail quality deboned thigh meat with or without skin. It is the world’s fastest thigh filleting system producing maximum thigh meat harvesting with minimum residue around the bones and knee cap.
MULTIHEAD WEIGHER MEDIUM
A first for the USA will be the IPPE appearance of the brand new MHW Medium. It’s the latest and largest member of Marel’s multihead weigher family tree. Featuring 20 heads, it can be used for packing fresh, sticky poultry parts into fixed-weight batches. The MHW Medium is particularly fit for the US market, as it can batch bigger breast fillets, thighs, drumsticks, wings, tenderloins and nuggets.
The new screws allow correct singulation; products cannot stick to each other. With only one product in each hopper, it is much easier to make perfect fixed-weight batches. The accurate combination of 3, 4 or 5 products means precise tray weights, resulting in fewer rejects and higher throughput.
