Free technology innovation sessions from MLA and AMPC a must-see for processors
Cutting-edge meat-processing technologies, such as advanced sensing, will be at the forefront of the inaugural Processing Day at AUSPACK 2017.
Headlining the free sessions held on Wednesday March 8 from noon to 4pm are:
- Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA)
- Australian Meat Processor Corporation (AMPC)
Processing Day Agenda
Keynote Speaker: Christian Ruberg, R&D Program Manager – Supply Chain Technology, Meat & Livestock Australia
Speaker: Darryl Heidk, R&D Program Manager – Supply Chain Technology, Meat & Livestock Australia
Topic: The Future in Automation and Objective Measurement in Optimised Meat Value Chains
This session will outline the current state of automation systems integrated with advanced sensing, and how these systems are leading to impressive productivity increases in Australian meat value chains. Advanced sensing is leading to very accurate information on every carcass, including: fat composition, meat yield, and eating quality attributes.
This session will also outline how technology providers can access Commonwealth research funds to leverage and fast-track their innovation for the meat industry.
Speaker: Peter Noble, Chairman, AMPC
Topic: The Importance of R&D in the Red Meat Processing Industry
Within this rapidly evolving competitive environment, it can difficult to get the results you need without compromising safety of the workforce, product integrity and quality. In order to reduce costs and improve operational efficiencies, the industry needs to adopt new technologies, develop new products and differentiate products.
Peter Noble, Chairman of AMPC, a Rural Research and Development Corporation, will elaborate on the importance of R&D in the processing industry.
Complimentary lunch and networking.
1-on-1 meetings between processors and machinery suppliers (Client Engagement Manager, Luke Kasprzak).
Exhibition floor tour, highlighting processing machinery and solution exhibitors.
Other exhibitors who will be showcasing processing solutions at AUSPACK, include:
- Heat and Control
- Viking Food Solutions
- J.L. Lennard
- Scott Automation & Robotics
- Walls Machinery
- Aurora Process Solutions
- Active Magnetics Research
Accuracy and safety are two important factors critical for machine operators who work at high speed. Watch the video below to hear Scott Automation & Robotics explain the significant advances in the efficiency and safety in Australian meat factories.
