JBT innovations on show at IPPE 2019

JBT is highlighting innovative solutions for both raw and further processing at this week’s IPPE 2019 exhibition, which takes place at Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center until February 14. Incorporating new technologies, the systems offer cutting-edge solutions – from waterjet portioning to flexible X-ray units – that enable companies to maximize efficiency, hygiene and throughput.

The latest addition to JBT’s portfolio of portioning equipment, the DSI 800 S Portioning System with Robotic Harvesting enhances the proven DSI 800 series by delivering higher throughput with lower maintenance and operating costs than competing alternatives. The DSI 800 S delivers high throughput waterjet portioning for a wide range of foods, including trimming and portioning of premium red meat steaks, poultry pork bellies, fish and selected baked products.

JBT will also be highlighting the XVision Flexscan, a completely new flexible technology platform for contaminant detection in wet or dry production environments. It will allow customers to achieve tailored levels of performance to meet ever changing and more complex detection criteria. With the ability to quickly update detection technology, customers will have the ability to become more efficient, bring in new business and seamlessly adjust to new regulations.

Among other JBT solutions, visitors to the booth can learn about clean-technology High Pressure Processing (HPP) from JBT Avure, chilling and weighing systems from JBT CAT, and JBT’s consistency in providing effective options for coating and frying. Meeting customers’ IoT needs is another JBT priority, and visitors to the booth will be able to see how the iOPS system can help your organization take the first step in the digital transformation journey.

JBT exhibits at IPPE 2019 at Booths 5035 and 5235, Hall B at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia until February 14.

A JBT Tech Talk, ‘Smart IoT Made Simpler’, takes place at 3.10 PM on February 13 at Booth B8725.

New products take centerstage for JBT at IPPE 2019

JBT will be bringing one its largest ever presences to this year’s International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), with two large scale booths and a range of solutions developed for the needs of companies in the poultry and meat industries. Featuring two adjacent 5,000 sq ft booths, JBT’s participation in the 2019 edition of the show, which takes place from February 12-14 in the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia, will also be notable for several exciting new product introductions for cooking, chilling and portioning.

An important event not just in the US, but globally, JBT’s Marketing Communications Manager Toni Fant says IPPE functions not just as a gathering place for the industry, but also an important forum for setting the agenda for the year ahead.

“The IPPE is important because it’s a key protein show globally which highlights the world’s largest annual display of equipment and technology used in protein processing,” she says. “IPPE gives us an opportunity to interface with the marketplace, roll-out new product launches and set the tone for the year. It also provides another touchpoint to interact with existing customers, as well as many other industry decision makers and influencers, while also serving as a type of “barometer” of the economy and the industry.”

Product innovations
For JBT in particular, Fant says the company will highlight an expanded portfolio for the raw and further processing segments, including portioning, weighing, marination, chilling, freezing, coating, frying, cooking, xray inspection, clipping and packaging, and high pressure processing equipment.

JBT will particularly focus on its innovative new product introductions. Chief among these will be the official launch of the Stein® TwinDrum™ 1000 Spiral Oven, which follows the successful introduction of the Stein TwinDrum 600 Spiral Oven in Europe and Asia. Designed for the greater production volumes in North America, the Stein TwinDrum 1000 Oven offers efficient two-zone spiral cooking with uniform temperature and excellent roasting capabilities.

The DSI™ 800 S Waterjet Portioner with Robotic Harvesting will also be a featured product at the show. The DSI 800 S Portioning Systems provide the industry’s highest throughput and most compact waterjet portioning system, The system reduces labor and increases yield via automated portioning and trimming.

During the event, JBT will host a presentation in the TechTalks Showcase on iOPS (Intelligent Operations) delivered by Matthew Jin, JBT’s IoT (Internet of Things) Program Manager.

“Once a device is connected, we can collect data  and convert it into actionable insights,” explains Jin. “Through decades of industry know-how and expertise,  we can analyze and detect issues before it becomes a bigger problem.   With real-time notification and smart reporting, iOPS empowers our customers to drive success.  In the end, everyone’s a winner when we let data do the talking.”

JBT will exhibit at IPPE 2019 at Booths 5035 and 5235, Hall B at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Georgia from February 12-14.

Matthew Jin’s Tech Talk, ‘Smart IoT Made Simpler’, will take place at 3.10 PM on February 13 at Booth B8725.
