    Smart needle system
    Program-controlled actuating drives automatically switches from singleneedle to beam control or to cleaning control. Only very rarely must a needle be changed manually; but even that is easily done.

    Intuitive, large-format screen
    The control computer synchronises nine drive units to ensure seamless functioning. During operation the system senses any changes and rapidly adjusts the Original IR 56 to the new conditions. The process
    data are documented and all settings and operating or cleaning-related data are continuously shown on
    the screen for the operator to view.

    Softer for better protein extraction

    Fine angled blades cut right through the meat with surgical precision. A suspension system for the blades
    enables processing of bone-in-meat parts. During the process of cutting through the fibres, the meat structure is softened, activating actomyosin, the meat’s own tenderiser. The result is increased fluid retention and tender meat.

    Push-button loading
    No need to lift bins from the floor onto the belt. Instead, a lift accepts a trolley loaded with five bins and automatically delivers one bin after another onto the belt. This working method ensures ergonomic,
    more efficient loading.

    Rotary filter for brine filtration
    Everything that does not fit through the needles is filtered out of the returning brine. Lumps of protein or spices are crushed and mixed again with the brine. Thus, everything that should be in the brine remains,
    and everything else is safely filtered out. The entire system is easily removed, cleaned and re-assembled.
    The rest is a fully automatic function.

    Integrated propeller mixer
    A fast-rotating propeller mixes a perfectly seasoned brine in just one minute. It distributes the spices and ingredients evenly in the water and dissolves them perfectly. A slower propeller speed maintains the mixing result throughout injection. Spices and ingredients thus remain evenly distributed, and are kept continuously in a mix action to enable uniform seasoning of the meat.
