Meat specialists use Marel robot

23 January 2012

Three years ago, cooked meats specialists, Bröderna Nilsson of Gothenburg, Sweden, invested in an Marel PolyLine to help them meet the increasing demand for their wide range of high quality beef, turkey, chicken and ham products.

Research by the University of Lincoln shows that the use of robotic methods to handle pre-sliced, ready to eat, meat products presents the user with the opportunity to reduce initial bacterial loadings and as a result it is possible to extend the shelf life of the product in food handling.

Three years ago, cooked meats specialists, Bröderna Nilsson of Gothenburg, Sweden, invested in an Marel PolyLine to help them meet the increasing demand for their wide range of high quality beef, turkey, chicken and ham products. At that time we reported that the challenging economic climate was benefiting Nilsson as increasing numbers of consumers spent more on eating at home.

Never a truer word was spoken! Demand for the company’s range of 40 different products under 3 brand names that includes beef, turkey, chicken and 15 different types of ham, has soared – so much so, that production has had to be virtually doubled! Average output is now around 25 tons per week of fixed weight sliced product at an exceptionally high pack rate.

Thanks to the considerable expertise and support of I.O. Trading & Teknik AB, a second Marel PolyLine has just been added which achieves this new goal easily and profitably with only two operators.

To further increase line efficiency a new Colimatic thermoformer has been integrated. It features an integral device that folds the pack from flat presentation from the slicer to a folded pouch – the all important and now famous – Bröderna Nilsson wallet pack.
