Milmeq custom designs systems to optimise processing for meat operations including beef, sheep, pork, goats, calves and deer. This includes designs for ritual slaughter process requirements, such as Halal.
In the early 1980s Milmeq pioneered the inverted processing system for lamb and sheep. Today this is recognised as setting the global industry standard, minimising carcass contamination and thus increasing product quality as well as improving operating efficiencies.
Our Primary Food Processing system expertise includes complete abattoir design for beef and sheep processing, overhead conveyor configurations for a wide range of animal breeds, ages, throughput rates and manning levels, and a range of semi- and fully-automated machines (including robotics) to assist with all stages of red meat processing.
Milmeq offers a variety of solutions for the efficient hide or pelt removal of beef and sheep carcasses, ensuring the quality of both the hide and the carcass is maintained.
Milmeq has developed a range of semi- and fully-automated hide and pelt pulling machines suited to beef and sheep processing.
All of our solutions are geared specifically for operator safety, efficiency and quality carcass presentation.
We also provide equipment to achieve clean and precise work-up to the flank and brisket, which assists in preparing the carcass for efficient pelt and hide removal.
Our hide and pelt removal equipment includes:
Milmeq beef hide pullers are compatible with head-on as well as head-off processing and can incorporate electronic back stiffeners to eliminate the problem of broken backs and product degradation during the hide removal process.
Milmeq hock restraint systems can also be used in conjunction with the hide removal process. Our hock restrainers are designed to securely hold the animal and ensure safety for the operator.
Having a well-designed hock restrainer in place allows for greater force to be applied on the hide while minimising the risk of the carcass falling from the rail. Hock restrainers can be designed suited to varying levels of automation, depending on processing requirements.
Milmeq is a world leader in the development of fully automated pelt removal equipment for small stock.
An important part of the hide and pelt removal process surrounds the broadest part of a carcass, the shoulders. This is where the most strain and tearing can occur which can reduce the yield and product quality.
We have focused our development and design attention towards this part of the process and as a result have a range of shoulder puller systems to suit different process requirements.
One of our key developments in this area is the Variable Independent Path (VIP) shoulder puller system, which assesses the unique shape of each carcass before applying an automatic pulling path. The VIP shoulder puller is the only fully automated shoulder puller of its kind.
Our range of sheep and small stock pelt pullers include:
