From May 7-12, the Middleby Food Processing Division will display a variety of innovative Meat Processing systems at their stand E06 in Hall 8 at IFFA, Frankfurt, Germany, with the impressive THURNE IBS 4600 Bacon Slicer set to take center stage.

The IBS 4600 Bacon Slicer is the only slicer in the world to use four independent feeds and blades with independent vision systems, offering precision slice control to producers of precooked bacon for retail and food service applications.

The unrivalled performance of the IBS 4600 is the result of Thurne’s continuous development and long-standing expertise in bacon slicing and has revolutionized the precooked bacon market. Improvements versus alternative processes are manifold, with more consistent slice thickness and quality as well as improved cook and pack yields among the highlights.

Short demonstrations of this unique piece of equipment will be run each day.

Experts will be available with advice about how the IBS 4600 and Thurne’s other high performance slicing systems for bacon, processed meat and cheese applications will enhance production performance.

Further exhibits on the Middleby booth will include preparation, food processing, thermal processing and packaging equipment, covering processes from raw material preparation and production to packaging of the end product.
