MASSIVE PRODUCTION GAINS BY MINIMISING ‘GIVEAWAY’
The gain for this bacon producing factory is significant because in the past, bacon was placed into the containers by hand and its weight was roughly measured. This resulted in what the industry calls ‘giveaway’. So, the move to a system that counted individual rashers, whilst also measuring them to improve quality, makes complete sense. Above all, it saves money as well!
And as ever, here’s a brief video. Watch out for the small bits of bacon being pushed off the end of the conveyor by the air jet.
