    Improved standardisation – more quality and more profit

    Efficiency and cost savings can be found through improved standardisation or production:

    Avoid lean meat give away in each carton and/or pallet/combo
    Optimise the value of trim categories by reducing the variation between each carton on a pallet
    Reduce the risk of fat fines/fat claims
    Stop foreign objects getting into the final products
    Get a protocol (fat, weight and foreign object detection) for use in case of disputes

    Improving the ham curing process

    With X-ray technology it is possible to objectively grade whole cuts like pork bellies, pork hams etc. into uniform categories, which is not achievable via traditional visual inspection. The grading is based on fat measurement and can be combined with image recognition.

    The benefits of this technology apply to producers of bacon, dry ham products and other finished meat products based on whole meat cuts.

    Suppliers of raw meat cuts can also ensure that deliveries are to specification (fat content, size, length, width, thickness) and without foreign objects.

Match customer specifications with MeatMaster II for pork-belly sorting

The MeatMaster II helps Bacon producers HKSCAN to control fat content in pork bellies more precisely according to customer demands. The bellies are run through a MeatMaster X-ray analyser that scans all of them for fat, weight and foreign objects. Data is fed to an automatic sorting line and labels are automatically printed for finished batches.
