JBT’s family of companies will be staging its first joint appearance at the upcoming IFFA 2019 show on a single stand, as part of presence that will include the worldwide debut of TIPPER TIE’s all new SVU6800 high speed large sizing machine. The event will also include the opportunity for customers to learn more about steaming solutions from FTNON and cutting-edge HPP technology from Avure.
Taking place in Frankfurt, Germany from May 4-9, IFFA is a leading worldwide meat and protein show, which is staged every three years. At the forefront of the meat processing industry, IFFA acts as a vital venue for learning about trends and new developments, says Torbjörn Persson, JBT’s Director of Value Stream & Global Product Line for Spiral Freezers.
The theme of this year’s JBT booth will be, ‘Reshaping the food processing landscape of tomorrow’, and as Persson explains, it will mark the first time the JBT family of companies has exhibited together on a single stand at IFFA. JBT companies participating will include: meat marination specialist Schröder; TIPPER TIE which produces equipment for clipping sausages among other solutions; and HPP expert Avure.
“All of us will be together at one booth,” says Persson. “It’s about showing the breadth of JBT, not just on the freezing and cooking side, but also in HPP pasteurization, and cutting-edge equipment for meat marination and preparation.”
The theme, he says, was chosen to reflect JBT’s status as an innovative, trendsetting company that is always looking to improve its products and offer solutions for tomorrow.
Jörg Nold, TIPPER TIE’s Director of Sales for EMEA and APAC, describes IFFA as the company’s most important trade show, explaining that the event provides an important opportunity to meet with customers and distributors, and show them the work TIPPER TIE has been doing over the past three years, including new innovations.
One such innovation is the new TIPPER TIE SVU6800, an automatic double clipper that can be used for a variety of products, including typical deli products, such as ham, chicken and mortadella, as well as dry sausages, salami, and even whole muscle products. “Thanks to the strong voiding system, whole muscles can be processed while accommodating sensitive casings,” says Nold.
TIPPER TIE will also showcase its powerful industrial line with the automated SwiStickXXL hanging line connected to a TT1815 double clipper, as well as the high speed automatic double clipper SV4800, and the labor saving TTSealH which is also connected to a TT1815.
Another highlight will be the SVF1800 low cost spreading voider machine, as well as the complete KDC-Family, which is perfect for lower volume high mix applications where flexibility and versatility are a priority.
“TIPPER TIE is a strong innovator in the field of clipping and packaging and we have solutions for every application and need, from small local butcher shops to the largest multinational corporations looking for the highest performing automated solutions,” adds Nold.
One of the newer members of the JBT family, FTNON, will also be present at IFFA 2019, with the focus on highlighting its steaming solutions for the protein industry, which can offer radical energy saving solutions. The FTNON DCC Belt Steamer DBS, which can offer a reduction in steam consumption of up to 90%, during the cooking of meat, fish, rice and pasta products, as well as potatoes, vegetables and fruit.
Using DCC Belt Steamer technology, the system offers a reduction of retention time by using a 100% steam environment, as well as an increased yield due to improved steaming efficiency. Resulting in an improved product appearance, discoloration is also reduced, while the lack of steam loss means there is no requirement for energy consuming steam exhaust systems.
Developed for pet food manufacturers, FTNON’s Pet Food Steam Tunnel PST consists of two chambers – sealed on both sides with water locks – through which a processing belt is continuously running.
“We have used our steamers in the pet food industry where we have strings of meat going through, which are then chopped in chunks before being packed,” says Jos Schröder, FTNON’s Commercial Director, who adds that the system is also used for meatballs.
JBT will be exhibiting at IFFA 2019 in Hall 8.0, Booths G06 and H06 at the Messe Frankfurt exhibition halls from May 4-9, 2019.
