At the upcoming IFFA show, TOMRA Sorting Food is set to unveil new technologies and equipment.

TOMRA Sorting Food will be located in Hall 9.1 Stand C78 of Messe Frankfurt, Germany, from May 7-12. The company will be showcasing its popular QVision 500 fat analyser, as well as highlighting its newest ground-breaking solutions for the meat industry.

Thorsten Niermeyer, business unit manager process analytics at TOMRA, says: “Natural variations of fat content are a challenge for everyone processing meat, trying to provide a consistent quality in their end product. With TOMRA’s QVision the manufacturer can take control of natural variation during production, at the same time as documenting supply quality.”

TOMRA’s QVision can analyse both fresh and frozen meat and measures fat, moisture, protein and collagen simultaneously, and in real-time, delivering highly accurate and consistent results. The hygienic and robust analyser penetrates up to 20mm deep into the meat and measures across the full 500mm width of its conveyor belt.

Thorsten continues: “The QVision’s unique interactance spectroscopy technology is cutting-edge and sets the standard for in-line meat analysis. The system is now widely accepted in the industry, with increasing use for new applications. With its ability to analyse up to 30 tons per hour it serves high volume meat processors perfectly. It is also a perfect choice for small and medium batch size processors, due to the accuracy of the QVision, which allows precise recipe formulation.

“Visitors to our booth will be able to see the machine in action and talk directly to the TOMRA team about the QVisions fast ROI. We are also really looking forward to unveil our new technologies and equipment, which we believe are truly revolutionary to the meat industry.”

IFFA is one of the most important international platforms for the meat-processing industry. In 2013, 60,000 trade visitors from around 142 countries came to Frankfurt to attend this event to network and become informed on the latest technological developments and issues facing the meat industry.
