Safe Meat Processing Automation with ABB Robotics

Jan 6, 2015

The safety of your meat processing plant can be greatly improved with the integration of an industrial ABB robot. ABB robots are able to use cutting tools that can be dangerous for workers; they can work quickly and effectively, without the fear of losing a finger. If you are interested in integrating an ABB meat cutting robot, contact representatives.


When pro­cess­ing meat, it is impor­tant to con­sid­er safe­ty – both for the work­er and for the con­sumer. Meat pro­cess­ing uses saws and oth­er cut­ting tools that can be dan­ger­ous to work­ers, and human work­ers can con­t­a­m­i­nate meat if not processed quick­ly. The answer to both of these prob­lems is the same – ABB meat pro­cess­ing automa­tion. The meat is processed more quick­ly, and there is less human contact. 

Speed is impor­tant when pro­cess­ing meat, but safe­ty is more impor­tant. When com­pa­nies use man­u­al meat pro­cess­ing tech­niques, work­ers run the risk of los­ing a fin­ger, a hand or pos­si­bly even an arm to the razor sharp saws that are used to cut through tough meat and bone. When using ABB auto­mat­ed meat pro­cess­ing, these kind of injuries are no longer an issue. The work­er is able to oper­ate the meat pro­cess­ing ABB robot from a safe dis­tance, far from the tip of the blade.

How­ev­er, meat pro­cess­ing automa­tion from ABB also ben­e­fits the con­sumer. When robots are used to process meat, there is lim­it­ed human con­tact, which lim­its the amount of bac­te­ria and con­t­a­m­i­nates that come in con­tact with the meat. There are also robots that are able to use steam and vac­u­ums to remove soil, bac­te­ria and con­t­a­m­i­nates that may be left­over from the animal’s coat. This improves the qual­i­ty of the meat and pro­tects con­sumers when they buy it and serve it to their families.
