USA: Gainco introduces new equipment for sizing & distribution of meat, poultry & seafood items
Gainco, Inc. introduces new portion sizing equipment for in-motion sizing and distribution of fresh or quick-frozen meat, poultry and seafood. Designed for durability, cost-effective operation and user-friendly interface, these portion sizers deliver inherently superior bottom-line performance for processing plants. Completely designed and built in the USA, Gainco portion sizing equipment contains a variety of productivity-boosting features. Programmable controls allow for batching by count, weight, or multiple product types, and minimize the incidence of overweight packing. A highly durable weigh deck, enhanced speed and accuracy, and the delivery of information that's easier to see and share are other productivity-enhancing features. Users can size up to 180 portions per minute, with a tolerance of + 1 gram for even the smallest pieces. Interchangeable infeed systems make it easy to adapt to the size and type of product being processed. Gainco's pull-off arm design reduces the likelihood for product to be damaged during discharge. The incorporation of industry-leading Intralox® plastic conveyor belting provides durability at the weigh deck and improves sanitation. Gainco portion sizing equipment features a display monitor that allows viewing of all drops at one time. The larger display screen is more user-friendly. The system is designed for local or remote PC interface, using the Windows® NT platform. The equipment is comprised of replaceable standard components. Gainco's portion sizers can be integrated seamlessly with existing production operations. In addition to routing full boxes to a strapping machine, unpacked product can be routed to an automated packing or bagging device. For more information, contact Jim Petersen at 770/534-0703.
