We were asked by a leading meat processor to develop a way to improve efficiency and throughput of meat processing applications such as boning and cutting. Several important elements to consider were improving productivity whilst maintaining employee safety and meeting the strict hygiene standards required.
Our experienced design team put together a bespoke solution for transporting and unloading the meat product in bulk using our dolav handling equipment. Our robust Dolav Tilter eliminates the need for manual lifting which significantly reduces the risks of staff developing costly musculoskeletal injuries. With its tipping height of 920mm and its tipping angle of 85Â° depositing the product is a simple and efficient process.
The next element of the project was to develop a conveyor system that could significantly improve throughput whilst still allowing for efficient manual grading of product. The ideal salutation was a Twin lane belt conveyor which allowed twice the product to be processed at once, doubling productivity. However each belt has a variable speed setting to allow operators to set the belt to process product at a speed that is comfortable and safe for them.
Sliding cutting boards with blade protecting covers allow for the operator to easily take product from the conveyor to cut depending on application. The incorporation of tray storage underneath also allows for the easy removal of off cuts or rejects to maintain quality. To ensure the system meets the tough demands of meat processing applications the belts are impact resistant and designed to be accessible for intensive manual cleaning. Adjustable product guides at the end of the conveyor mean that product can be directed into a Eurobin ready to move on to the next stage of the manufacturing process.
This conveyor system compatible with dolav handling equipment and Eurobins was designed to specific dimension provided to us. However thanks to our manufacturing and design capabilities we are able to develop and manufacture solutions to different sizes and specifications depending on application and requirements.
SYSPAL's meat processing line was well received by the customer and fit in well with their existing production processes whilst helping to create a more efficient and lean meat processing line. If you have a similar meat processing requirement, or simply need to improve production efficiency and throughput why not contact us and see what we can do for you?
As a specialist stainless steel and aluminium manufacturer for hygienic environments SYSPAL have decades of experience and a comprehensive understanding of what makes a good design work. Whether it's a completely bespoke design or combining standard products with a bespoke component we can create a solution for you.
One of our customers recently approached us with the requirement of creating a packing station designed for handling product in bulk using Eurobins. Our design team worked with the customer to develop the above project which incorporates two standard pieces of equipment with some bespoke components. These products include a standard Eurobin Tipper and belt conveyor combined with a bespoke chuted packing table, HDPE top chopping boards, knife sharpeners and under conveyor storage.
The standard Eurobin Tipper transports products inside a Eurobin before depositing onto the chuted packaging table. This is a more efficient process which also eliminates the need for manual handling helping to keep employees safe. Product is then evenly fed through the chuted end of the table onto the conveyor belt where up to six operators can work on weighing and cutting, ready for packaging, integrated under conveyor storage trays allow for easy disposal or offcuts. This helps to improve throughput and productivity when processing the product.
Constructed entirely from stainless steel, the crevice free design of all of the equipment ensures the system meets the strict standards of hygiene required within the food manufacturing industry.
We can create intelligent workflows for processing and packaging no matter what the application or product. If you have a similar requirement or just want to know if we can design a workflow for your requirements, get in touch with our team now.
With over 40 years of stainless steel manufacturing and design experience, developing bespoke solutions comes naturally to SYSPAL. Whether it's for a small piece of equipment to solve a challenging problem or a full production line, we are able to call upon a design team with extensive experience tailor a solution for you. This process is evident in the development of the above tray racking and conveyor system.
Our customer approached us to enquire if we could develop a ‘pick and pack’ system to improve and speed up their existing process. Although this was not a standard off-the-shelf product request, our design team were able to produce a system that could meet the customer's application requirements.
The resulting bespoke project design incorporated bespoke stainless steel racking designed specifically for the size of trays requested and a gravity roller conveyor. This was also designed to a specific length and angle to provide the correct speed of tray movement. The equipment is easy to wash down and maintain as it is constructed entirely from 304 and 316 grade stainless steel, ideal for use in hygienic environments. As the racking is attached to the conveyor it is much easier for an operative to pick items from the racking and pack into a tray quickly ready for transportation.
If you are interested in developing new ways for transporting product around your factory or making processes more efficient, don't hesitate to get in touch. Our design team will strive to meet any application requirements to develop a bespoke solution for you.
We work with our customers to design and help manage their projects. A personal approach to working with customers helps us to understand the requirements of each design brief. From one off pieces of equipment to capital investment projects with multiple assemblies; our technical sales team are involved at all stages of each development.
With over 40 years of industry experience, our technical sales and design departments work together to satisfy the exacting requirements of our customers. Our design resources are unrivalled within the industries we work in. We thrive on a design challenge!
Our comprehensive in-house design department use the latest CAD systems to rationalise and justify design concepts. Many of our bespoke projects are realised in full detail and can be pre tested on screen. Our CAD systems also link directly into our manufacturing processes, this evaluation process prior to manufacture is invaluable.
SYSPAL is the UK's leading manufacturer of stainless steel equipment for hygiene conscious industries. We invest heavily in the latest technology in manufacturing equipment. We also invest in the skills of our production workforce. Strong design backed up with the finest fabrication keep our company at the forefront of British manufacture.
Understanding the time constraints of each project we manage the process leading to a stage of delivery. At this point we hope to exceed the expectations of our clients. The planning and management efforts throughout each project come to fruition when we test assemblies in-house and arrange site installations.
Our factory based installation teams take great care during project installation. The skills of these teams are equal to our design and manufacturing divisions. This level of professionalism is often remarked upon by our clients. These same teams use their project knowledge to look after products throughout their life-cycle. Prompt after sales service and maintenance are our specialities.
Many of our customers are relationship accounts where we have become the 'go to manufacturer' for excellence in design and manufacture in stainless steel. We appreciate all our customers and strive to develop our relationships.
