There are billions of people on this planet, and they are eating more than ever before. Because of that, food processing has to get faster and become more consistent, especially with fresh food like meat, so the food can be processed and frozen, canned, dried, etc. Motoman Robotics has many material handling and cutting robots suitable for use in the meat processing industry.
Meat processing robots, like those available through Motoman, have to be food grade. These robots have a special coating and are cleaned with a special food-grade solution to ensure that there is no contamination during the meat processing operation. Motoman meat processing robots can be used to clean meats like poultry, getting them ready for the cutting process. They are also able to hold chickens, pork, and sides of beef, while other robots in the work cell cut the carcasses into more usable pieces that will sell well in your local grocery store.
With the price of meat going up and up, it is important for meat processors to get every usable piece they can from the carcass. That is why Motoman meat processing robots are so valuable in this industry. Unlike human workers who may cut in the wrong place, or leave usable pieces of meat on the carcass, robots are able to work with each piece of meat, ensuring that only the most unsavory bits are thrown in with the waste. Then, Motoman meat processing robotic systems are able to package the meat and send it off to be frozen, refrigerated, or shipped.
All in all, using Motoman robots for meat processing actually saves companies money, while providing the consumer with fresh, nice looking meats for consumption.
