Danish Crown’s automation improvement plans

The Vice President of Engineering from Danish Crown, Henrik Andersen, recently spoke with Just Food about the automation of the meat industry and how Danish Crown are investing more to implement more automation into the processes they currently have.

This includes a new factory in Manchester that will process meat into Bacon. With the automation investment they are aiming to increase earnings and improve efficiencies. Henrik discusses that in Denmark they are already more automated than most meat producing plants in other countries.

The article is certainly an interesting read and discusses the intricacies of trying to automate a process with a raw product that is never identical. The programming of a machine to process raw meat will be a lot more intricate than the programming of a machine to weld a car for example. Due to the fact that the car is always the same pieces and sizes of metal.

The automation plan Danish Crown has for the next two years will focus on logistics, handing products through the plant and internal transportation as opposed to the trickier tasks of deboning.
