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.

Palletising and Container Loading

Milmeq provides a range of systems to enable efficient and streamlined palletising and container loading.

Palletising Systems

Our palletising systems reduce the manual labour input typically required as well as the use of forklifts.

Equipment includes:

  • Carousel conveyor system
  • Robotic palletising

Using robotics to automate the palletising process results in significant reductions in the time taken to compile a pallet.

The system can be controlled to maintain synchronisation with product throughput at prior stages and can also include flexible settings so the pace can be increased or decreased according to changing palletising needs.

Barcode scanning is integrated before the palletising process, which allows the recognition of location for each product due to be palletised as well as allowing the robot to allocate an area for product with faulty or illegible barcodes.

The system is specifically designed to ensure checking, control and management of product before it leaves a processing operation.

Power Scope

The power scope is a system designed to aid the loading of a container with minimum operator or fork lift input providing maximum utilisation of space and time for this operation.

When extended, the unique conveyor system can reach to the end of a 40 foot container. As the container is loaded the conveyor reduces in length back toward the doors of the container. The compression of the system works by collapsing specially designed conveyor sections in folds similar to those of a concertina.
