Automated Ham Production Equipment
The Danfotech Press Tower Systems are designed to handle meat products before and after cooking. The systems are based on extensive experience in processing technology of cooked meat products around the world, combining key elements such as:
• Optimization of cooking & cooling capacity
• Product appearance (color, flavor and shelf life)
• Uniform shapes & sizes
• Reduction of waste on slicing lines
The fully automated system on the left has two press towers with multiple layers of molds waiting to be opened. Once opened, these molds go along the conveyor to the elevator on the right to be emptied of cooked product and rinsed.
Fully Automatic Press Tower System
Danfotech's Fully Automatic Press Tower System is designed to handle products before and after cooking. The system is based on many years of extensive technical experience of handling cooked products around the world. From stand-alone components, such as the demolder and the hydraulic press, to fully automatic production lines with capacities exceeding 250 tons per day, Danfotech can meet the most demanding production goals.
The strength of the fully automatic press tower system for ham production is automation with full process
control. In this flexible production system, meat in calibrated molds is exposed to constant and yet flexible pressure during cooking and cooling. This results in products with high slicing yields. The system offers high product flexibility together with the possibility of various product sizes and shapes. The press towers work in conjunction with water or steam cooking systems.
• Fully automated process
• Highest degree of uniform product with high yield
• Applies pressure during both cooking and cooling
• Low labor rate
• Reduced space requirements
• Large throughput
• Compatible with water or steam cooking.
Semi-Automatic Press Tower System
The Danfotech Semi-Automatic Press Tower System is ideal for smaller production lines. It consists of a Press Tower and Demolder. They require no labor lifting during loading and unloading of molds.
