Workshop for MAJA partners: presentation of the MAJA FPE portioning line for fresh meat

During a two day workshop in MAJA’s headquarters in Kehl-Goldscheuer, sales and service partners from Poland, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland got an impressive demonstration of the weight-controlled fresh meat portioning line MAJA FPE 155.

Since self-service fresh meat products have found their way into the food retail displays, the pressure on the meat processing industry has become stronger and stronger so that companies need to invest in more profitable production and processing methods.

The MAJA FPE 155 can help to automate the portion controlled slicing process. It increases not only the benefit, but also the quality of the production process and last but not least of the final product.

Since the end of the Nineties, the German machine manufacturer MAJA has developed, produced and distributed high-quality fresh meat slicing machines and portioning systems, which are in daily use by the meat industry all over the world for the production of ready-to-cook and self-service meat products. Thanks to the know-how and the long experience in the field of volumetric slicing, MAJA is able to offer with the FPE 155 line a unique portion-controlled slicing solution with direct infeed of the portions into trays.

At the beginning of 2013, the first MAJA FPE 155 line was started up in a brand-new meat processing plant in the South of Germany. Today, two MAJA portioning machines with conveying lines are producing there several tons of equalized self-service meat products every day.

A still more comprehensive line with four MAJA portioning machines including complete tray management and conveying line is now ready for delivery to a customer in Brazil. MAJA presented this line on 24 and 25 October 2014 to the 30 guests of the partner workshop. They have not only been impressed by the regular portion weight and the high quality of the sliced meat portions - an important aspect for the successful distribution of this kind of line concept on the global markets is seen in the fact that the customer gets everything from one hand: MAJA provides portion-controlled slicing with direct infeed into trays and the complete tray management until conveying to the tray sealing unit.

MAJA has many years of experience in flake ice production with alternative refrigerants.

There is an international scientific consensus that global temperature rise should be limited to 2°C in order to prevent undesirable impacts on climate change. The European Commission plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the industries by the year 2030 with 70 percent. No wonder, that this is a current topic in the refrigeration sector as intensively as the replacement of environmentally damaging refrigerant with ecologically sound alternatives.
MAJA therefore sees itself responsible, as an ice machine producer, to offer innovations that can be integrated into climate-neutral composite concepts. Already since 2008, MAJA took the lead with the RVH CO2-D flake ice machines, following a complete series of machines in this program with daily output ranging from 500 to 3800 kg. The machines are suitable for direct operation via a subcritical R744 composite system. Hundreds of machines have since been successfully installed worldwide, mainly in supermarkets in France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland, but also in Japan. At this year's EuroShop, the world's flagship show for the trade, the R744 flake ice machines were the focus of the visitors' interest.
Especially for industries that require large amounts of ice and operate an ammonia compound system , MAJA offers the series RVH NH3-D with daily capacities of 7000 and 14000 kg. R717 has no negative effect on the degradation of the ozone layer, nor does impact the greenhouse effect.
MAJA strive to go even further and already offers alternatives to conventional R404A. The RVH standard models with daily outputs from 400 to 12000 kg can be also designed for use with environmentally friendlier refrigerants such as R 507, R407A, R407F, etc.
If you have interest in any of the environmentally steady ice machines for the production of flake ice with alternative refrigerants, do not hesitate to contact our specialists who are more than happy to assist you to find a suitable solution for your requirements.
