The effects of COVID-19 forced various processors to take measures like implementing social distancing and partly shift to other output products. The pressure on poultry processors to be flexible with both their input and output has never been so apparent. Together with decreased dependency on labour and increased requirements on health and safety, processors are facing demanding times

Meyn, specialist in poultry processing solutions, answers these challenges with the release of the Rapid Plus Deboner M4.2, featuring the new semi-automatic loading carousel. This upgraded modular, configurable deboning solution takes the next step to meet the need for flexibility and for saving labour.

Better health and safety, reduced skilled labour

The Meyn Rapid Plus M4.2 with improved ergonomics enables processors to save up to 34 fte (full-time equivalent) per shift. As the loading performance is less dependent on the experience and skills of operators, it leads to a more consistent input resulting in a higher quality output.

Throughout the Rapid Plus solution, all required operators are standing on separate platforms, that can be adjusted in height individually to ensure an ergonomic work position.

"The secret of the Meyn Rapid Plus is the heart and passion of the dozens of experts that worked on making this deboning solution the icon it is today. From engineers to manufacturing, service technicians, sales, everybody within Meyn has gone above and beyond into perfecting the entire Rapid Plus. You can really see that craftmanship when working with the Rapid. From the SAL, till the gear belt to the tiniest screw,” Marcel Verhagen, field support engineer said.

Better flexibility

Meyn's well-known Rapid series offers full flexibility. As the only solution that can harvest all fillet and tender products automatically from both breast caps and front halves at a high speed of 7,000 bph.

Both input and output can be adapted to changes in market demands. Three preset touch-buttons enable to adjust critical settings during production when product weight ranges change.

Additionally, the modular design of the Rapid Plus M4.2 provides poultry processors great flexibility to customise to the available floor space, with individual processing sections each having their own drive and gear belt to move the product carriers. The product carrier can be rotated in the best position for each individual processing step. Further, the speed of the product carriers is varied across the system, slower at the place of manual operation and fast in automatic operation.

"Quality products produced at high speeds was our requirement. The Rapid Plus M4.2 perfectly caters to our needs,” Varun Reddy, CEO Sneha Farms, commented.

Training

Meyn offers default training to achieve the best result with processing solutions. The Meyn Rapid Plus M4.2 training programme ensures that technicians understand the relation between input product characteristics, adjustments and the required end product quality, for both production and maintenance.

The Rapid breast deboning concept has been globally praised by processors and their customers and proven to be successful. All customers truly see the benefits of Meyn’s unrivaled deboning solution. Its flexibility, significant reduction of labour costs and a minimised dependency on labour skills and input variety make it a true deboning gamechanger.
