On the 22nd January, Scott Automation & Robotics, in collaboration with MLA & AMPC, invited executives from meat producing companies to the Red Meat Technology Update 2014. The event is also a celebration of BladeStop’s commercialisation.
The day started with a presentation of the latest red meat technologies . The guests were taken through the research and development journey and had a sneak peek on the technologies currently being developed.
The highlight of the event was the live demonstration of BladeStop™ which is uniquely designed to reduce risks of serious injury by mechanically stopping the bandsaw blade when the unit sense that a person has come in contact . As seen with the demonstration using a sausage, this technology can be a huge difference between just having a small skin cut and a possible amputated finger.
Some feedback comments collected from attendees:
“Well done to the SCOTT team. Suggest you do more workshops like this, maybe once a year”
“Please contact me to arrange a plant audit for automation improvements”
“Great to see the real demonstrations of the technologies”
SCOTT would like to thank all the guests, MLA & AMPC for attending the event and for the chance to showcase our innovative technology. See you at the next one!
