Universal high-performance portioning system from TVI

With its GMS 1600 twincut portioner, TVI will be presenting at Anuga FoodTec 2018 a universal high-performance portioning system, which is characterised by its very high level of portion quality, yield and flexibility. Even at high output, this efficient solution ensures the highest product quality is always achieved in terms of cutting, forming and arrangement of the product – and it can be integrated seamlessly into a production and packaging line.

The GMS 1600 twincut is suitable for the portioning of both frozen and fresh meat into diced product or slices in a wide range of thicknesses. The processing capability ranges from pork fillets to beef topside and from a one-millimetre thick carpaccio slice to a 300 mm thick sliced roast joint. Even meat with bones such as chops or cutlets can be cut easily into even slices. The maximum product length is 650 millimetres.

Thanks to the patented 3D forming system from TVI, the multifunctional portioning system offers the highest degree of flexibility and precision. Thanks to a large number of standard modules and customer-specific programs, the GMS 1600 twincut can handle practically any portioning task. Short changeover times increase availability and therefore productivity. The twin-track cutting channel ensures that maximum throughput is achieved, as does the capability for simultaneous reloading during the portioning process. With its very low give-away, the highly efficient machine can, for example, portion roast beef in 200 gram portions, pork loin steaks in 80 gram portions or goulash with a thickness of 30 millimetres.

The GMS 1600 twincut, equipped with new control  technology, can be automated and offers precise compartment and individual slice storage. The total length of this flexible meat processing system, including discharge conveyor for the  separating out of meat trimmings and B-grade goods, is  5.2 metres. The solution can be combined with, for example, a continuous freezer and an automated depositor module and  connected to a high-performance MULTIVAC thermoforming packaging machine or traysealer.
