A highlight at IFFA is the Frontmatec GOSystems MES software – a manufacturing execution system for managing production key performance indicators, such as yield, throughput, quality and labor efficiencies. The GOSystems platform for traceability ensures constant, direct access to valuable information that can reduce losses on expired products and optimize the product age level. It also provides direct real production time data which is crucial for modern meat processors to optimize ordering, packaging and palletizing processes. 

Besides GOSystems, it is also possible to experience the Frontmatec S2 SCADA software – a great tool for increasing uptime and throughput through fast problem solving, localization of breakdowns and faults and preventive maintenance.

Solutions for Individual Carcass Data

Contact: Henrik Almind - hal@frontmatec.com  |  Book a meeting


Obtaining data besides carcass weight is crucial in a modern slaughterhouse as it provides valuable information of the raw material that is to be processed.

At IFFA several grading solutions will be displayed, including the Frontmatec
AutoFom IIITM – the most accurate and fastest fully automatic pig carcass grading system in the world. It is the only system which provides robust and accurate information about yield of primal cuts. AutoFom IIITM enables monitoring of cut-floor performance and production planning decisions on the basis of verifiable data rather than on assumptions.

For cattle Frontmatec will reveal the new Beef Classification Center – BCC-3TMthe next generation of objective online grading system and yield prediction of beef classification. The BCC-3 makes a complete 3D image of the cattle carcass and based on advanced multi-view stereo imaging it grades in conformation and fat cover classes Using sofisticated algorithms, the Frontmatec BCC-3TM software makes an image analysis that provides yield predictors of primals and detailed information about commercial cuts.

Let the Robots do the Work

Contact: Xavi Jané - xjane@airarobotica.esBook a meeting 

At IFFA, our experts from AIRA and Frontmatec will offer advice on robotic solutions and where best to automate in the process line. Several robot solutions will be demostrated, including the unique AIRA Dual Splitting Saw which is widely recognised as the most accurate high capcity pig splitting saw in the world. A major new launch from AIRA will be the introduction of robots into the cattle dressing lines. On the stand, a full scale working Cattle Splitting Saw prototype will be displayed.

For the cutfloor the Frontmatec Robotic Chine Bone Saw is on display in a completely new configuration with automatic transport of the cut off chine bone and automatic separation of loin and belly using a new developed band saw. Besides labor saving, the possibility to create recipies with parameters suitable for different customer wishes or changes in raw material provides considerable efficiency and yield gains.

One of the key goals within the meat industry is improved ergonomics and Frontmatec continuously develop automatic solutions to reach this goal! The latest state of the art solution is a high speed Pork Single Rib Puller with automatic pulling of single ribs with robots, removing one of the most straining working tasks within the pork deboning industry.

Flexible Hanging and Deboning

Contact: Jesper Hansen - jeh@frontmatec.com  |  Book a meeting 

New modular built hanging deboning concept for efficient and ergonomic deboning of pork leg or pork shoulder. As one size does not fit all,  we offer individual solutions for each unique customer. The hanging deboning line is designed with grippers, that can rotate the product between the working stations, for optimal ergonomics for each operator. Several automatic and semi-automatic functions can be integrated as well as in-line tray conveyors, offering a fast and reliable intra logistic solution.

Complete controlled management of trimmings from pork, beef or lamb is possible with the Frontmatec Trim Sorting Line. By optimizing yield management, you can increase the value of your trim output by building dedicated portions into pre-determined batches. The line is highly automized and offers full control of fat percentage even for the smallest of batches.

The unique Frontmatec loin 2D trimming machine was recently re-designed and technically updated. The machine individually measures each loin, classifies it, and each trimming is done individually, by 8 special shaped cutting knives, which improves the yield and reduces the needs for additional trimming afterwards.

Hygiene and Disinfection Systems

Contact: Michael Weinert - mrw@frontmatec.com  |  Book a meeting

The popular ITEC Star Clean lane walk throug hygiene station for sole and hand hygiene presents itself at the Frontmatec booth as a new generation featuring two special innovations: Continuous sole side cleaning and the UV-disinfection module for brushes!

At the Frontmatec booth visitors will get to know a new innovative continuous flow system for disinfecting surfaces and learn more about maximizing hygiene in their work process with the new ITEC UV-C Tunnel. Using highly effective UV-C radiation, up to 99.99% of micro-organisms are eliminated making it an ideal solution in a wide range of application such as packaging material disinfection, disinfection of packaged foods, raw sausage disinfection, disinfection lock, shipping crate disinfection, product disinfection and raw material disinfection.

Also on display is the ITEC Cleaning and Sterilizing machine which ensures hygienic cleaning of knives and sharpening steels in large-scale operations in the meat industry. The device is also suitable for related equipment like cleaning cutting inserts, aprons or chain gloves. Together with transport trolleys, knife holders and storage holders it is part of ITEC's flexible tailor-made cleaning concepts.

Captive Bolt Stunning Tools

Contact: Joe Holland - jho@frontmatec.com  |  Book a meeting

Frontmatec Accles & Shelvoke, the originator of the cartridge powered stunning tool, will be revealing a major new invention with the world’s first cartridge powered CASH Multi Stunner. This revolutionizing penetrating captive bolt stunner has been specifically designed for cattle operations to reduce loading time and thus minimize the time of the cattle spent in the stunning box for improved animal welfare.

Besides the multi stunner, a range of the world’s most popular captive bolt stunning tools, the CASH series will be on display, including the CASH Special XL, the world’s most powerful pistol shaped stunner. Ensuring the stunning tool is always in optimal working conditions is vital, on the stand the CASH Captive Bolt Stun Check will also be demonstrated.
