Marksman Matrix Inkjet Controller
The Marksman Matrix provides several unique-in-the-industry
features, including a 10-inch touch screen that allows on-floor (as
well as main office) editing of printed codes and an error-reducing,
user-friendly interface at a price point that is competitive with standard inkjet system controllers. The new technology is ideally suited
for use in systems that print alphanumerics, graphics and barcodes
onto porous packaging substrates like corrugated boxes for a wide
variety of food, beverage, personal care and medical applications.
The color 10-inch touch screen featured on the Marksman Matrix
provides enhanced functionality compared to traditional five- to
seven-inch controller screens. Whereas traditional screens require
front-office editing, the larger 10-inch size allows for quick, on-floor
administrator editing of printed codes. The system is also compatible with front-office editing via Windows Remote Desktop. The unit
can control as many as four printheads on two production lines.
The graphics driven, intuitive user interface is driven by the flexible
and feature-rich Windows environment. Hard drive storage is as
much as six times greater than on traditional controller technologies, allowing for enhanced performance in a number of key areas.
Intelligent, streamlined design enhances durability.
The Robag 3ci high speed VFFS
packaging machine delivers
a sugar rush with up to 250
bpm from a single unit and
offers production flexibility in a
compact, easy-to-clean system
that is particularly suited to prewrapped sweets. This innovative
system ensures high visibility
of operation, minimizes downtime and offers an extended
product lifespan. Additionally,
the company has made it even easier to operate the Robag 3ci by
simplifying the film system and upgrading the user screen (GUI),
as well as increasing speed and accuracy to provide up to a 30%
improvement in both output and reduction of rejects.
Powder Injection Mixer with Hopper
The company is offering a new high-efficiency hopper for its
line of High Shear Mixers with Solids/Liquid Injection Manifold
(SLIM) Technology. The SLIM is a unique rotor/stator device engineered for high-speed powder injection into liquid without the
need for educators or pumps. The improved hopper design ensures a steady rate of feed delivery and prevents "rat holes" or
bridging of bulk solids. Typical solids dispersed using the SLIM
include CMC, guar gum, carrageenan, xanthan gum, alginates,
pectin, calcium carbonate, starch, sugar, salts, dye powders and
other additives or fillers. All product contact parts are stainless
steel 316 polished to 150-grit ( 32 Ra) finish. Tri-clamp connections on the liquid inlet, powder inlet and mixture outlet allow
for easy disassembly and cleaning. The mixer is supplied with a
cartridge-type double mechanical seal and barrier fluid tank.

Ver Tex Forming Systems are ideal for consistently creating a wide range of formed,
further value-added poultry products. These
systems are designed for superior versatility,
texture and the lowest cost of ownership
while the Ver Tex1000 was designed to improve efficiency and sustainability by substantially reducing water usage and power consumption. Ideal for manufacturing value-added poultry products, features for the Ver Tex660 include
a Direct Drive Servo System offering drum speeds up to 20 RPM and rates in excess of 9,000
lbs. ( 4,000 kg) per hour depending on application, while the Ver Tex1000 offers the industry’s
highest output at drum speeds up to 20 RPM and rates in excess of 14,000 lbs. ( 6,400
kg) per hour depending on application. Both systems’ Dual Lobe Pumps protect a product’s
original texture. The pump and the feed screw movement are operator controlled to prevent
overworking, resulting in a better product texture. Portions can be as thin as .200” (5mm) and
as thick as .750” (19mm) with front to back dimension of up to 6.00” (152.4mm) — providing all the versatility you need for whole muscle, ground muscle, ground, 3D contoured, large
diameters, this products and all mixes.

This software developer has announced the release of
SIMBA for meat and poultry processors. Specialized
Inventory Management with Barcode Accuracy, or SIMBA,
is designed to provide food, meat and poultry processors
the ability to process, label and track their products.
Increase production speed and traceability with SIMBA.
The system solves the problem of how to produce and track complete product labeling
for meat and poultry on the fly. The easy to use system is customizable for the processor and can be integrated to most scales for proper weight measurements and also
tracks by-products to multiple locations. SIMBA inventory system provides production
and inventory reporting through the supply chain. Cartons can be accumulated onto a
pallet and tracked with a single pallet identifier. This integrated system gives the user
complete traceability of the product from receiving to shipping. The cartons or pallets
can be stored and tracked by location within the warehouse, cooler or freezer.
