“When it comes to the international markets, we expect a high demand from the food service sector, as well as those industrial-scale companies, which use smaller or more flexible lines, and those that are looking to get into fresh meat portioning. Our target group also of course includes large supermarkets with their own butchery sections,” explains Florian Helfrich, Product Manager at TVI.
The main feature of the multifunctional GMS 400 portioning machine, when compared with the previous GMS 520 model, is its flexible 3D pressing of the product. This means that the system is even better suited to different sizes and shapes of product. Thanks to the perfect shaping of the product, there is a very even cross section throughout the whole length of the product, so that consistently even slices in both size and thickness can be cut with maximum product yield over the entire piece of meat. Depending on the desired shape and required quality expectations, it may even be possible to virtually eliminate the first and final end cuts completely.
The compact portioning machine can process practically any type of meat and fulfil a wide range of portioning tasks - from medallions to cutlets and roulades, from carpaccio to large joints, and either with or without bone for pork, lamb or calf meat. It is possible with just a few forming sets to handle this wide range of products in a very short time.
