Turnkey solution for Improved transport and efficiency

At Plukon Maasmechelen, a major player in the European poultry meat market, the desire for an optimised filleting department and improvements to various transport solutions were high on the agenda. As a producer of chicken products and ready-to-eat meals for leading food partners, aiming for ultimate efficiency and quality was crucial.

Streamlining meat processing with Marvu conveyor belts

Marvu Food Processing Equipment played an essential role in taking on this challenge. With a project size of 125 metres, several Marvu conveyors and systems, including Type 325, Type 280, and Type 360, were strategically positioned to optimise the conveying process and create integrated workstations. A dynamic belt scraper and adaptation of the existing conveyor system were seamlessly integrated to ensure a smooth product flow.

In collaboration with Plukon, Marvu developed a turnkey solution from layout design to complete delivery. The project included:

  • Efficient packaging of fillets and tenderloins for retail
  • Integrated workstations for trimming and packing
  • Supply and return conveying for different processes
  • Adaptation of existing crate transport
  • Optimisation of packaging and infeed transport systems

Marcel van de Heuvel, Engineering Manager at Plukon Food Group, highlights the successful cooperation and emphasises: “The professionalism and skill throughout this project ensured we now have a reliable system that both companies can be proud of.”

Connection is the key to success

With this project, Plukon Maasmechelen has significantly improved its transport efficiency and laid the foundations for a streamlined production process and high-quality end products that meet the highest quality standards in the food industry.
