Cutting edge showcase at VIV Asia- visit booth H098-3441 March 15th to 17th, the international trade fair VIV Asia will take place in Bangkok, Thailand. For the first time ever, Marel Poultry will present a unique live cut-up and deboning demonstration, reproducing manually the cuts and maneuvers of our equipment.

Marel Poultry will demonstrate a unique live demonstration during VIV Asia. An in-house cutting expert will show how our skillful cut up and deboning systems go about to achieve the highest quality, most precise cuts and maneuvers. This setup will clarify processes more than the equipment itself could possibly do on a fair; it is fairly unfeasible to reveal the real mechanical operations, even when using running machines with open panels.

"Cutting Edge Showcase"

By manually mimicking the movements of cut up and deboning equipment, Marel Poultry shows its high level of specialized research, development, engineering and application, all needed to understand processes such as thigh deboning. Our company has detailed expertise in poultry processing operations and knows exactly how to automate these processes, always bearing in mind our customers' needs. That's why our systems stand out for quality, precision and reliability.

The live cutting demonstration also reflects the trend to automation as a means to improve quality, hygiene and food safety. The demonstrated manual processes are so complicated, that processing plants would need a large amount of skilled laborers to achieve them. However, there is a global shortage of such expert work force.

Thigh deboning

One of the solutions in which Marel Poultry shows its automation expertise, is the Stork Thigh Fillet System. VIV Asia will witness the Asian launch of this revolutionary system, which is the world's first inline high-capacity thigh filleting solution. With utmost efficiency and consistency, the bone is carefully separated from the meat, in order to supply retail quality thigh fillets. Meanwhile, the knee cap is removed accurately and at no point in the process, there's a need for manual trimming.
