Bizerba's appearance at SÜFFA 2015 from 18 to 20 October in Stuttgart (Hall 6, stand E10) is devoted to the European Food Information to Consumers Regulation (FIC). The company will be presenting technologies which support meat processing companies implementing the regulation. Various scenarios from the day in the life of a butcher illustrate how a small area of work surface can be used space-savingly and how efficient labelling in accordance with the FIC will be possible.

Butchery companies equipped for FIC

Space is often a scarce commodity, particularly in small butchery companies. Bizerba shows how a small space can be used effectively: the ScalePad counter weighing pad is set into the counter surface and also serves as a work surface for hygienic cutting, thus perfectly suited to the smallest of spaces. The modular K-Flex POS and weighing system can be expanded with cash drawers, displays, CPU and printers and flexibly positioned where space allows, whether next to or under the counter. Serving staff in butcher's shops can access the counter display without any hindrance.

The GLP-Imaxx labeller takes on the labelling of pre-packaged goods in conjunction with the iL Professional 50 hygienic scales. The scales, with protection class IP 69k, are fully finished in stainless steel and are easy and quick to clean. The result: hygienically packaged products.

In a preparation room, Bizerba shows the GLM-E labelling machine for labelling on a larger scale. The compact, fully-automatic machines can optionally label products which are manually fed or can be integrated into labelling lines.

All information required for weighing and labelling is controlled by the industry software .CWS from a central location. Item management, product information, allergens and nutritional values can be added with the help of the .CWS merchandise management system and transferred to each POS and weighing system. A label printer, also linked to the software, produces counter labels and price tags.

Controlling several branches

In a second scenario, Bizerba shows that modern merchandise management systems can do more than simply controlling individual branches. From a central location, they also reconcile the data of several businesses, avoiding the need for laborious manual updates of, for example, products and prices. In this setup, the displayed scales from the X-Class and K-Class families can be installed as an independent branch or run in conjunction with the other scales. Controlled via a central system, they can be flexibly supplied with data.

Bizerba introduces the XC 300 labelling device from the XC range which supports the changeover to FIC in the weighing system network.

Bizerba also displays a new user information interface for tablets which, just like the scales, is automatically supplied with information from the .CWS merchandise management system. The user interface offers end customers the option of calling up advice on allergens and ingredients. The interface also supports branch managers who can more flexibly organise their usual order and inventory procedures via the mobile tablet.

Slicing and processing

For meat processing, Bizerba presents the fully-automatic VS12 D-R vertical slicer which is equipped with a round-plate deposit area, ensuring appealing product presentation. The machine slices the foods hygienically and without contact using the automatic carriage drive and deposit system.

The fully automatic A550 slicing machine lends itself to use in larger meat processing businesses. It sliced flexibly, efficiently, and in doing so, precisely portions each sliced product by weight. Product offcuts are minimised and excess weight in portions reduced to the target weight, both in the case of levelled-out products and products in their natural form.

Depending on requirement, the S121 can be used as a slicer or as a meat tenderiser. Equipped with the Emotion drive concept, the multifunctional device works with precision, efficiency and saves energy. The S121 is simple to operate and also suitable for long-term use, for example in a large-scale catering establishment.
