ADVANCED SLICING PERFORMANCE
Provisur Technologies introduced Formax’s PowerMax slicing systems. The AccuPower Independent Drives promise complete control over each log. Meanwhile, the PowerScanner makes portioning of irregularly shaped products faster and more accurate. The patented slicing technology utilizes a system of lasers and cameras to generate a true 3-D product image prior to slicing. The safety laser scanner results in a more open, hygienic environment as it lessens the need for mechanical guards. To speed and simplify washdowns, a button-operated automated cleanup mode pivots the slicing deck into the horizontal position and allows easy access to internal components. Finally, Multitec Autoloading systems’ patented technology automates the positioning, transfer and loading of sliced portions at high speeds.
APPLY ALL STYLES OF BREADING IN LESS SPACE
Heat and Control’s 90-inch long Micro Breader uniformly applies all styles of pre-dust, crumb and flake coatings to poultry, meat, vegetables and other foods. Automatic belt tensioning increases conveyor belt life, and top coverage and breading bed density are independently adjustable. Plus, interchangeable top hoppers and large clean-outs permit fast changeovers between free-flowing and non-free-flowing coatings.

AUTO SPLICE SYSTEM FOR PACKAGING FILM
Tna’s robag Auto-splice system automatically splices film, thus increasing packaging efficiency and maximizing product throughput by reducing the need for manual intervention. The new Auto-splice head, coupled with a robag dual spindle film system, joins the start of a new pre-prepared roll of film to the end of an expiring roll. The film preparation is carried out while the machine is still running, with no interruption to the packaging process and no machine downtime. It’s also fully integrated with existing robag software, which assists with the automatic reel change.
PORTIONING GROUND MEAT INTO LOAVES
Hollymatic’s Model 120 Precision Bulker was designed to portion ground meat into loaves. It features an adjustable stand and conveyor, providing a comfortable height for any operator, and fits most grinders; just plug in the bulker, drop paper into place and switch on the power. The Precision Bulker precisely and consistently portions ground meat into 8- to 32-ounce loaves with clean, squared corners for an attractive appearance. Plus, a foot-switch on the grinder controls output and leaves hands free for handling meat portions.
