The latest developments in meat and poultry weighing, grading, packing and quality control were showcased by Ishida Europe last month (April 14-30) in a series of demonstrations at its UK headquarters in Birmingham.

Highlights included a new leak testing system for trays along with solutions for weighing, X-ray inspection, grading and tray sealing for meat and poultry applications.

“The size, shape and sticky nature of meat and poultry products present several unique challenges for effective automation of the packing process,”​ says Ulrich Nielsen, director of business solutions at Ishida Europe.

“Over the years, we have developed and refined a range of equipment specifically tailored to the special requirements of protein sectors and our event provides an ideal opportunity to showcase these.”

As well as stand-alone machines, two fully-integrated lines were demonstrated.

Ishida’s advanced screw feeder weighing technology uses novel rotating corkscrews to provide a controlled and fully automatic product feed to the pool and weigh hoppers. The CCW-R-214-20-SF model was shown as part of dedicated grading and tray sealing line, while a new model, created for product tests, was also demonstrated.

The CCW-R-214-20-SF formed part of a line that included Ishida’s Rotobatcher and QX-775 tray sealer along with a seal tester and the new leak detection solution.

The Rotobatcher combines the accurate weighing of fresh meat and poultry with manual manipulation to optimise the products’ arrangement and presentation in trays.
