JBT to showcase IMAX 400 SMARTline Injector at Gulfood Manufacturing


Global food processing technology solutions provider, JBT will be showcasing the Schröder IMAX 400 SMARTline Injector at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing. JBT acquired the German-based manufacturer in February this year to extend its inline portfolio of portioning, coating, cooking, searing, chilling and freezing technology.

A pioneer in curing technology for over 50 years, the Schröder injector is designed to deal with a wide variety of products, including red meat, poultry products and fish, and can be modified to inject special brine recipes or challenging ingredients.

“The Schröder SMARTline range of injectors can deal with even unconventional demands,” commented Michael Nöhring, JBT’s sales manager for the Schröder line.


“The injector accuracy and high yield is based on 50 years of experience in the curing industry, along with research we conducted with the University of Applied Sciences in Lemgo in Germany. It’s available with two manifold variants, a retraction block for bone-in products and an optional tenderising block. The injection rate can vary between 10% and 100%.”

All Schröder injectors have a standard deviation of up to 0.5 – 1.5 depending on the product. The touchscreen controller, which will be operational on the stand, can set pump performance, speed and type of injection (one or two-way injection) with the ability to store up to 25 recipes.


“The injector has been designed for flexible configuration to suit the process and production conditions,” says Michael.  “Many customers come to test their own recipes at our test facility in Werther in Germany, where they can trial the injector on various raw materials.”

The Schröder IMAX injectors can be integrated with JBT’s range of Frigoscandia GYRoCOMPACT® Spiral Chilling and Freezing Systems. JBT’s other brands include DSI® portioning systems, Stein® coating systems, Double D® cookers and searer/grill markers and Formcook® contact and convection ovens.

JBT will be exhibiting in Hall 4, Stand D4-44 at Gulfood Manufacturing 2018 at the Dubai World Trade Centre from November 6-8.

Cost-effective clipper to be centerpiece for JBT Tipper Tie at SÜFFA 2018

The JBT Tipper Tie SVF1800, a cost-effective, high-speed automatic double clipper that helps eliminate residue for sausage processors will be the focus of JBT’s participation in the upcoming SÜFFA 2018 trade exhibition, an event which brings together much of the meat industry from across Germany for three days in Stuttgart.

Taking place at the Messe Stuttgart exhibition halls from 20-22 October, the long-established show is one of the most important meeting points for the meat industry, covering the complete range of products and services for craft butchers and processors.

In the case of JBT, whose Tipper Tie unit will be exhibiting for the duration of the show, the SVF1800 will be the undoubted highlight; a system which can be connected to all conventional filling machines to produce individual, string, and ring sausages in precisely sealed portions without sausage residue in the casing ends. The SVF1800 can also be used for packaging semi-finished confectionery products, cheese, soups, and non-food products.


Jörg Nold, JBT Tipper Tie’s Director of Sales for the EMEA and APAC regions, says SÜFFA will provide an ideal forum to showcase the SVF1800 and other systems to a wide audience. “SÜFFA is an interesting exhibition for growing, mid-sized customers,” he says. “The whole of Germany will be there, as well as some exporters, which will include companies specialised in sausage production, meat processors, butchers and cheese processors.

“The SVF1800 is our highlight for this year and we will be inviting customers from across Germany to learn more about the system.”

JBT Tipper Tie will be exhibiting in Hall 9, Stand 9D31 at SÜFFA 2018 at Messe Stuttgart from October 20-22.

Lifting the load: JBT showcases efficiency-improving AGVs at Pack Expo


JBT’s line of automatic guided vehicle (AGV) systems, solutions which are enabling many high profile companies in the food sector to make substantial efficiency savings, will be centerstage at this year’s Pack Expo, which will be held at Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center from October 14-17. JBT will be showcasing the CB750, a counterbalance-style forklift AGV capable of carrying 750 kg, which will be running host-free at the show. 

What this means in practice, says JBT AGV’s Laura McConney, is that the forklift will be operating without any high-level software and will make all the intelligent decisions itself. Ideal for handling pallets, racks, and rolls, the counterbalance AGV excels in floor-to-floor transfers, and its end-mounted lift mast allows the vehicle to move multiple load types without complications.

“The AGVs handle a lot of packaging materials for customers, principally towards the end of line as packaging materials are coming off the production line,” explains McConney. “We do really well with palletised units and can also automatically load and unload trailers.”


Efficiency savings
However, one of the most outstanding attributes offered by the AGV is its ability to deliver substantial efficiency savings. Manufactured in the US – as well as the UK for Europe and China for Asia, respectively – the AGV units remove repetitive and wasteful work practices, enabling companies to redeploy resources more effectively. 

“Most of what we’re delivering to customers is labor savings,” says Mark Longacre, JBT’s applications manager for automated systems. “We think of that as allowing them to redeploy labor to where they can create more value in their process. Having people on a forklift moving products from one end of the plant to the other all day does not add value to the product. In reality, it can affect safety and often does. People get bored and careless and make mistakes, which can create accidents and personal injury, as well as plant and product damage.”

JBT will be exhibiting at Pack Expo 2018 at Booth N-4725 in Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center from October 14-17.

JBT to highlight protein processing potential at CIMIE China


JBT’s protein unit will be exhibiting at the upcoming China International Meat Industry Exhibition (CIMIE) where the focus will be on highlighting how JBT solutions and systems can help support the dynamic growth of the Chinese meat industry. Organized by China Meat Association (CMA) and the International Meat Secretariat (IMS), the show will staged be Beijing’s China International Exhibition Center from September 20-22.

Stefan Axelsson, JBT’s Director of Technical Solutions & Marketing for Asia Pacific, explained that the focus for JBT at the event would very much be on protein related products and processes, such as freezing, brine injection, waterjet portioning and High Pressure Processing (HPP). “HVB (brine) injecting can make meat clean label and increase yield of product,” he said. “HPP from JBT Avure is another clean label technology which helps to extend shelf life of case ready products.”

Daniel Liaw, JBT Director of Sales – China, added: “CIMIE is China’s number one meat exhibition, so exhibiting at CIMIE is important for JBT brand awareness, engagement with our existing customers and meeting new customers. The key message we want to deliver is that JBT can contribute to the food industry revolution in China with the technology we have.”

JBT will be exhibiting at CIMIE China 2018 at Stand C8027, Hall 8 at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing, China from September 20-22.

TIPPER TIE brings innovation at affordable price to AAMP 2018

, part of the JBT family of companies, will use the forum of the upcoming AAMP 2018 Convention in Kansas City to highlight one of its latest innovations, the SVF1800, a system which delivers industrial-level meat processing performance at an affordable price. A cost-effective automatic double clipper that produces products with clean sausage tails, the SVF1800 uses cutting-edge, spreading voider technology to eliminate residue and is also suitable for larger caliber products.

The system forms part of a range of products designed to meet the needs of smaller meat processors, which TIPPER TIE will be showcasing at AAMP 2018, which takes place at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center from July 19-21.

Conrad Faust, TIPPER TIE’s Director of Product Management, says the event is particularly important because – unlike most shows – it provides an opportunity to showcase products and equipment directly to smaller meat processors rather than being concentrated on bigger players.

“Especially with TIPPER TIE’s product line, we have a very strong position with our TECHNOPACK line of KDCR machines for butcher shops,” he explains. “These are really tailor-made for smaller-volume, high mix production.”

Of particular significance, Faure continues, is the SVF1800, which he says will help level the playing field for smaller processors with their bigger competitors by delivering professional, high volume production at a reasonable price.
