Blue Skies Ahead for Foodmate

It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since the successful opening of Foodmate’s North American Sales and Service Center. During this first year, we have accomplished many things that have allowed for rapid sales growth and employee expansion.

More and more customers are starting to realize the benefits of our R&D efforts. More than 10 plants have now successfully installed our new OPTI Leg Processor and customers are now realizing the benefits of the new OPTI Thigh Deboner. Other successes have come from the purchase of a highly customized 16-piece cut up system by one of the world’s largest poultry processors.

As a result of our rapid growth, Foodmate US upgraded its facility from 5,800 sq. ft. to 31,000 sq. ft. to support our current and future growth. In addition, Foodmate is investing in key employees with many years of poultry processing industry experience to support our customers in the field and behind the scenes from our offices.

Our manufacturing plant in the Netherlands continues to make investments to support our growth. Just recently we invested in several state-of-the-art CNC machining centers that are capable of making quality parts at a cost effective price.

We are excited about the progress we are making, and that our customers are seeing significant benefits from our developments. It is our goal to develop new products that allow for a fast return on investment while keeping your overall operating and maintenance costs low.

We wish you a successful and productive 2012 Poultry Show.

Foodmate Introduces New Branding

These are exciting times at Foodmate! In January 2012 we launched our new logo and branding. The new logo is a reflection of the refresh taking place inside Foodmate, and our renewed sense of purpose showing our core business as a manufacturer of poultry processing equipment.

The new design is indicative of more improvements to come as we grow and develop into an industry leader.

The “graphic” in the Foodmate logo shows progression and forward movement. The new logo applies two colors, namely green and blue, symbolizing the chicken and the cut up parts.

We thank our clients, colleagues and staff for sharing in our journey to get to this point. We look forward to your continued support as we work to further improve and continue to make a positive impact in the industry and in the communities we serve.

OPTI Leg Processor

Newest innovat ations OPTI Leg Processor Flexibility and Yield The Foodmate OPTI Leg Processor is designed

Flexibility and Yield

The Foodmate OPTI Leg Processor is designed to anatomically remove the back from the saddle to create a back out whole leg. The unique design of the OPTI Leg Processor lets the saddles run straight through the machine and never change direction. The legs are pulled away from the back and there is no need to twist the back away from the hip sockets. This results in a smoother process, putting less strain on the backs and hocks, and improving yield. The machine can run a wide size range while maintaining an optimal anatomical cut with minimal to no adjust- ments. Since the introduction in 2011, numerous customers have installed and benefited from the OPTI Leg Processor. All have reported very positive results with significant yield improvements while reducing rework caused by bone content. The OPTI Leg Processor can be installed in either a new Foodmate Cut-Up System or it can easily be integrated into your existing frame or flex cut-up system.

Unique Features and Benefits of the OPTI Leg Processor:

a wide size range with minimal adjustments

of the “turn” Improves oyster retention

High Yield and Hand-Cut Appearance

The Foodmate OPTI Thigh Deboner was developed to solve problems commonly found in both manual and automated thigh deboning operations. The unique concept and design of this machine will provide high meat quality and optimal yield, and only requires a few trimmers and inspectors.

The innovative scraper design and tendon cutting system gives the meat a hand-cut appearance and does not shatter or crush the bones. Unlike other automated thigh deboners, the OPTI Thigh Deboner does not require a rubber disc to clean the bone, which significantly reduces operating cost.

There are many benefits with the OPTI Thigh Deboner over hand deboning systems. Adding this feature will provide more consistent results, requires less operator training and more importantly, doesn’t create ergonomic issues with your employees due to repetitive motion.

The Foodmate Food Service Cut-Up System is designed to meet all 8-piece, 9-piece and dark

The Foodmate Food Service Cut-Up System is designed to meet all 8-piece, 9-piece and dark meat cut-up requirements.

A typical 8- and 9-piece machine consists of a tail cutter, food service wing cutter, inline fat puller, pre-cut and/or keel cutter. For a 9-piece cut, it includes the lengthwise halving machine, thigh popper, food service halving machine, food service thigh/drum cutter and static un-loader. All pieces can be collected in a synchronized conveyor with pockets.

The Foodmate Food Service Cut-Up System is supplied with auto-correcting magnetic cut-up shackles which significantly reduces the opportunity for the shackles to be turned in the wrong direction when entering the cutting modules.

The unique turn point and side plate configuration makes the machine easy to clean and flexible for future line modifications.

The standalone machine requires minimum installation time because all of the single point connections are integrated into the machine.

Eviscerating Equipment

Foodmate offers a full line of eviscerating equipment with line speeds up to 8000 birds per hour. The Foodmate eviscerating machines are constructed to meet the highest hygienic standards with maximum accuracy. The Eviscerating Line consists of all the equipment to manage your eviscerating needs.

The Breast Cap Deboner filleting machine is 4100 mm in length and the capacity is approximately 1400 breast caps per hour, requiring four operators to manage at this capacity.

The line speed is frequency controlled and is manufactured according to CE guide rules.

The length of the line can be extended to meet your operational needs and is delivered standard with the de-skinning unit.

Super Wing Tip Cutter

Magnets Help Improve Wing Tip Cutting

To help address the issues with skin damage and to provide more consistent joint cuts, Foodmate developed a completely new approach to online wing tip cutting.

The wings are presented back first and are guided into the machine. After the wings are placed into position, a special indexing wheel flips the wing tips in an upside direction.

The indexing wheel uses magnetic technology to consistently position the wing for accurate cutting. The specially shaped indexing wheel is designed to accommodate various wing sizes with no adjustments.

Foodmate recently introduced a new double bladed, front halving machine to address problems commonly found with single bladed front halving machines.

Using two blades instead of one large blade gives a straighter cut across the hips and gives more control over the number of ribs that stay attached to the front half.
