Meat processing – safely automated
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.
For Festo machines, working safely with machines is a matter of course. Using safe pneumatic and electric components from Festo provides you with the certainty that your safety measures are being implemented in compliance with the European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This allows you to achieve the best possible safety at your workstations.
With our industry experience, we guide companies through the stages of risk assessment, designing a safety plan, validation and much more – with practical on-site training for your employees.
We make no compromises when it comes to food safety. We provide you with the right automation components for meat processing machines, with durable and resistant materials and a hygienic design. Everything you need for a perfectly hygienic and clean condition that can be achieved very fast.
We are very aware of how things have to be done in your industry, and our experts are very familiar with the relevant standards and directives you must adhere to.
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.
Automation for meat processing
Round cylinder CRDSNU
With NSF-H1 grease. Extremely reliable and durable thanks to the dry-running seal. Always correctly adjusted, too, thanks to the self-adjusting end-position cushioning system PPS.
Valve terminal MPA-C
Easy to clean and corrosion resistant. IP69K for direct use in challenging environments. FDA-compliant materials and NSF-H1 grease included.
Plastic tubing PTFEN
The PFTEN tubing is particularly resistant to chemicals, cleaning agents, extreme temperatures and pressure. Ideal for the food processing industry, e.g. meat processing.
The application: further processing
Your objective: optimum cutting results and refinement for even more flavour
Our solution: components for applications subject to extreme temperatures, drives with specific features, such as hard scrapers, for use directly in the food zone
Stainless steel round cylinder CRDSNU
Standard cylinder to ISO 6432 with self-adjusting cushioning
