Marel Poultry to showcase solutions at IPPE 2019
Marel Poultry will participate in the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia, US, on February 12-14, 2019.
During the event, the company will showcase different aspects of a processing plant and demonstrate how it can help processors keep control throughout the entire poultry plant.
One of the solutions offered will be Marel's Stork ATLAS live bird handling system, which provides "perfect" control of broilers' welfare, the company said.
"This solution controls the smooth transport from farm to shackle with no need for human intervention. After loading on the farm, the process does not require any human [intervention] until manual shackling of the stunned broilers," Marel explained in a press release.
The company highlighted the "combination of ATLAS and CAS SmoothFlow anesthetisation," which "has been highly acclaimed in North America over the last year."
"Large conglomerates in the poultry industry have begun integrating this Marel Poultry solution into their operations with many more to come," Marel added.
The company will also address the issue of labour with its automated solutions designed for an entire processing plant.
"Our SingleFeed solution is a great example of a labor saving solution. We will have a twice-daily live demonstration showing how our automatic sortation into our I-Cut portioning equipment works to keep tight control over yield," Marel commented.
Another issue of importance is tracebility. To address this challenge, Marel will showcase the Innova software which "offers processors multiple opportunities to gather data and contribute to end-to-end traceability."
"Sensors at crucial positions throughout the plant all deliver their information to the control room where Innova can identify and backtrack the product properties of every shackle in the plant," the company said.
"An integrated Innova solution will enable plant management also to control, monitor and report on the real-time status of production and yield. It allows them to 'zoom in' on every aspect of production and pinpoint the exact process stage where performance can be improved."
