Top performance with HighTech curing
The curing centre with 112 needles and as many softer knives is a novel machine construction with a technical equipment that has everything. From the preparation, the program controlled working process to the cleaning and disinfecting, everything works fully automatic and with repeat accuracy. With a belt width of 700 mm as well as 50 injections per minute the IR 112 achieves a performance of up to 7.000 kg per hour.

The softer works simular to a steaker with unique angled knives, which create surgical cuts inside the meat structure and tendons after the injection.
This is how the tissue structure of the meat is loosened up and it activates the meat’s own softer actomysin. This makes the meat more tender and
improves the protein breakdown and the liquid retention. The softer is attached in next to no time and softens meat with or without bones.
Everything works fully automatic, because programed power units switch from single needle- to beam- or cleaning-control. Only the seldom occuring
needle exchange has to be done manually, but even this is child’s play. A novel lifting system prevents brine from entering into the lower lying area containing the drive units and smooth surfaces guarantee perfect hygiene.
A filter with a rotating drum filters everything from the brine that doesn’t fit through the needles. Lumps of protein or spices are crushed and mixed again with the brine. So everything that belongs into the brine stays in there and the rest is filtered out. The complete system is easily removed and reinserted, everything else is fully automatic.
The machine has an integrated brine mixer which always knows the correct process speed from the computer, in order to produce a good brine and to make sure, that the brine stays evenly mixed during the entire process. This achieves always uniform curing results and top class quality, even after long breaks or process intervalls.
No matter what product, the PC without keys synchronises nine drive units precisely and in a split second in order to achieve the best curing result.
Changes are recognized very fast during the curing process, the machine is adjusted accordingly and all process parameters are documented. The advanced software informs the operator about all datas of the process or the automatic cleaning cycle.
