Milmeq custom designs systems to optimise processing for meat operations including beef, sheep, pork, goats, calves and deer.

Our red meat processing systems include complete abattoir design, incorporating all the systems and equipment to process beef and sheep product from hot to cold.

Having worked in the red meat industry since the 1950s, we pioneered many of the technologies which have shaped the operating environment today. For example, the inverted processing system, where carcasses are suspended by their fore legs during the pelt removal process, was pioneered by Milmeq in New Zealand in the 1980s; today it is recognised as setting the global standard for sheep and deer processing delivering superior food hygiene and operating efficiencies.

Our industry-leading plate freezers and chilling and freezing tunnels have been deployed in meat processing operations around the globe, delivering improvements in operational efficiencies as well as product quality.

The Milmeq Fully Automated Stock Transfer (MFAST) system is now revolutionising materials handling for meat processors, offering superior efficiency in operations, use of space and quality of product.

The following systems and equipment have been developed to enhance processing operations within the red meat industry.

Carton Conveying

Milmeq develops complete carton conveying systems for the transport, sorting, management and tracking of product.

Each conveying system is designed to suit individual customer needs and site specifications. Understanding the different product types and number of current and future path requirements for product enables our systems to accelerate the pace of transport, eliminate unnecessary queuing and deliver seamless transitions between each operation.

With the majority of systems designed for integration in food processing environments, design features include carton x-ray, barcode scanning and integrated washing and sterilising facilities.

All systems include pre-wired electrical control and are suited to operating in low temperature environments.

Our range of roller and belt carton conveying systems includes:

  • Fixed drive conveyors
  • Accumulation conveyors
  • Diverters
  • Lowerators, elevators and spirals

Accumulation Conveyors

The options available to achieve effective and reliable accumulation include:

  • Powered
  • Turners
  • Gravity
  • Zero pressure accumulation

Diverters for Carton Sorting

We offer high speed 90 degree diverting systems for carton management and sorting. Typically diverters are integrated to allow for product to be scanned by barcode and then transferred to predetermined areas, whether it be to enter a chiller, freezer or straight through to palletising.

Our range of diverters includes:

  • Horizontal diverters
  • Vertical diverters
  • Swing diverters
  • Eccentric driven diverters
  • Gravity mergers

Lowerators, Elevators and Spirals for Carton Control

When space is at a premium and large elevation change is required for carton transport, our lowerators, elevators and spirals provide an efficient solution. These systems reduce the footprint required whilst maintaining the required product flow and pace.
