From product preparation to tested primary packaging, Weber offers a wide portfolio with complete solutions for sliced meat and cheese production and packaging. Everything from one source, seamlessly integrated and intelligently networked. Through this unique set up, we are able to take the integration of slicers, automation, packaging and end-of-line equipment to a new level and avoid additional interfaces at the same time. We combine powerful line components into even more powerful complete line solutions. Boundaries between individual components disappear so the complete slicing line merges into one unit. These system solutions always have a holistic approach and are adapted to your individual requirements.
Bacon for the British retail market in 300 gram packages with a line output of 96 portions per minute —those were the requirements of our Denmark-based customer. Also, the shoulder section of the bacon slabs needed to be sorted out as lower-quality portions to be packaged and sold separately.
Raclette cheese, Emmental, Appenzeller, Gruyère, each portioned out and presented differently – no problem at all for a Weber line! Our customer needed a flexible solution for processing versatile cheese applications.
This is the preferred line solution of our customers when it comes to processing caliber goods in the high-performance range. Already 500 of these lines have been installed in the last seven years, and this line concept still sets standards as the best in its class – there is simply no solution on the market that is more efficient, more flexible, more hygienic, and more compact. This complete line solution is suitable for a wide range of applications and easy to retool. It is ideal for food processing plants that are faced with rapidly changing food retail requirements and a growing need to produce more individual, smaller batches.
This Weber system solution consisting of the new weSLICE 4500 involute blade slicer, a fully integrated wePICK 7000 pick robot with a unique buffer function and the wePACK 7000 thermoforming packaging machine equipped with two formats is the perfect all-round solution for full-line suppliers. With an average output of 50-80 packs per minute, it offers maximum flexibility for many small-batch applications – all at a very modest footprint. Additionally, radical reductions in set-up times, combined with lower staff requirements, also help to minimize costs in the long term.
As a strong partner for the food industry, we have developed a solution for cutting and automating cold cuts for packaging in flowpacks or trays. And that being nothing less than the most compact, yet powerful line solution on the market. The system can handle up to 90 packs per minute, including functionalities such as turning and aligning, as well as handling portions with an incorrect weight. This solution offers maximum flexibility and optimally meets the requirements of the European market, realizing even the smallest batches in form-fill-seal packaging. Whether you choose to package your products in sustainable flowpacks with thinner film or focus on premium presentation of your products on a tray: with this line, the choice is yours.
No matter how large or small your space is: thanks to the flexible Weber ShuttleSystem this line concept can be integrated into any setting. The full mechanical and electrical integration of the components also make this line the perfect solution for producing large quantities with a small footprint. As the portions are transported gently, safely and precisely with the help of the ShuttleSystem, this line concept is ideal for slicing and packaging natural products such as dry-cured ham. Manual portion adjustment in the packaging is not necessary.
