Meat processing facilities face unique material handling requirements due to operational challenges brought on by the processing environment and the nature of the products being handled.

Cisco-Eagle provides solutions with a partnership approach. We understand the Meat Processing industry's storage and handling requirements can differ dramatically from standard material handling applications and we know how to cope with those differences to optimize operations. We have extensive experience working in the demanding environments of these operations and applications.

The issues:

Production areas

By improving operational efficiency and ergonomic work conditions, we make certain equipment is protected from the rigors of daily wash downs. Special equipment finishes such as stainless steel or galvanized are often requested due to the heavy wash-down associated with production areas,

Box make-up areas

Cisco-Eagle provides specially designed empty case conveyor systems that properly present cases to pack station operators by using a variety of material handling equipment designs. Many of our systems use erectors and automatic transformers in conjunction with powered and gravity conveyors, chutes and overhead chain systems.

Full case systems

Full cases from production areas often require a wide array of activities to take place prior to being placed in storage or shipped to the end user. Cisco-Eagle provides many of the devices associated with these production requirements. This group of devices may include the following: Bar Code Scanning, Case Scaling, Bar Code Labeling, Case Sealing/Strapping, and a variety of other custom solutions.
