Case Studies

Birchwood Foods, a provider of fresh and frozen, raw and fully cooked beef, pork, and poultry products came to us needing a new process to break apart and treat frozen beef trim blocks. BIRCHWOOD FOODS TEMPERED BLOCK SYSTEM

Project Scope This project included: •

Model entire floor of plant

• •

Integration into other equipment Custom tempered block breaker design & fabrication Incline and specialty conveyors

• • • • • • • • •

The system they were using involved moving product around to multiple fa- cilities and required 2 shifts and 22 employees to meet production demands.

Upon meeting with the client and visiting the plant, our team designed, fabricated, and installed a complete system to take their boxed product from a microwave to a treating system. Fusion Tech’s solution increased product output and decreased processing time from a 2-shift operation manned by 22 people to a 1-shift operation manned by 7 people.

Controls & Automation

- Increased Product Output - Decreased Processing Time - Decreased Operating Expenses

Birchwood saw such a marked difference in their processing operation, that they purchased more systems to optimize their entire operation.

Fusion Tech worked with us to take our current operation of pro- cessing frozen beef trim blocks that took 2 shifts and 22 employees to reach our product goals and reduced it to a 1 shift operation manned by 7 people. They designed a new piece of equipment for us that took our semi-frozen trim blocks and gently broke them up so we could treat each piece to eliminate any bacteria. We told them what we needed the system to do, and they went to work re- searching options and designing a system that met our needs and saved us time and money. We are able to process the same amount of product in 1 shift that we did in two. I would highly recommend working with the team at Fusion Tech. - Charlie Tamburelli
