Busy days for Frontmatec


2019-05-23

Frontmatec were at IFFA for the first time and gained a lot of attention on its automation and integration theme, launching several revolutioning new solutions
to the global meat industry.
Leading global supplier of equipment, solutions and software for the red meat industry, Frontmatec, participated at IFFA 2019 for the first time – and did so with a major impact.
Frontmatec greeted the global meat industry to its 645 m2 large stand with an abondance of new innovative solutions under the theme Automation and Integration, bridging equipment solutions, data acquisition and utilization throughout the value chain from live animal receivable to retail packing.
Several new exciting solutions were revealed as world premiers which gained a lot of interest from the industry who clearly see the potential in the new Frontmatec solutions. These new solutions includes: 
The world’s first cartridge powered captive bolt multi stunning tool
Frontmatec Accles & Shelvoke - the world’s most popular cartridge stunner manaufacturer, revealed the world’s first patented multi shot cartridge powered stunning tool. Using a 10 cartridge feed strip this revolotionizing multi stunner will greatly reduce loading time and increase operator efficiency while
maintaining the highest level of animal welfare.
Individual carcass data 
Frontmatec exhibited a complete installation of the new Beef Classification Center – BCC-3 TM – the next generation of objective online grading system and yield prediction of beef carcasses. 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 sophisticated algorithms, the Frontmatec BCC3 image analysis enables yield predictors of primals and detailed information about commercial cuts. Information that allows the slaughterhouse to process each carcass for an optimal yield.
The world’s first robotic circular saw for cattle cattle carcass splitting
Next to the Frontmatec AiRA Robotics Pig Dual Splitting Saw with backfinning, a prototype of the first ever developed cattle splitting robot with circular saw were on display. This fully functioning robot naturally created a stir and crowds filled the ailse to see what was proberbly the largest working robot at the entire
IFFA fair. There were naturally a lot of interest from the cattle processors who are keen to explore new automation concepts as current processes in beef plants in general are manual and labor intensive, says the company
