Meat processing – safely automated

Meat processin

Hygiene is crucial in meat processing. Every one of your systems, from slaughter to meat processing to packaging, has to be meticulous when it comes to preventing contamination. That is why we have pneumatic and electric automation solutions that are perfect for processing meat and sausages, built using a hygienic design, extremely resistant to external influences and easy to clean.

Key safety questions

Safety in the meat and sausage processing industry means machine safety. But having reliably clean production processes is also a top priority.

Reliably tight packaging

An example of food packaging is an application that can handle materials of different quality and thickness, while making sure the tension is right for every material. If not, the goods might be damaged or the packaging may not be fully sealed. The utmost care must be taken when feeding in the material – even tiny inaccuracies can lead to a loss of quality in production.

The solution is a dancer control system that integrates all the functions in a decentralised manner on the valve terminal MPA. This includes our terminal CPX, which you can use to easily incorporate pneumatic and electric control chains into any automation concept. Our easy-to-clean stainless steel round cylinder CRDSNU ensures spotless processes.
