Complete Scanvaegt System for QMP in Canada.

Quality Meat Packers Ltd, located in the centre of Toronto, Canada, is currently capable of processing 25,000 pigs a week, and these are all supplied by farmers in the local area.

To achieve full control of production, the company decided to invest in a production management system, the Multiflex 3000, from Scanvaegt International A/S, PO Pedersen Vej 18, DK-8200 Aarhus, Denmark, tel:+45 89 30 44 44. We hear this system, which was supplied by Scanvaegt's North American distributor - Matrix Industrial Control Systems Inc, has saved the company a great deal in give-away, labour and time.

Phase one of the new system comprised the installation of a number of Scanvaegt box labelling stations in the cutting area with Model 8362 Weight Indicator Computers and separate macro keyboards. All these labelling systems are connected to the Multiflex 3000 Production Management System, which enables all modules of the system to be fully exploited, including label design, yield and production reporting, factory order processing and recipe control.

Phase two involved the installation of six weighing stations (overhead track scales, floor scales and bench scales) in the processing area. These are also connected to the Mutliflex 3000, enabling information to be shared between the two departments and the management operation, to provide a complete overview of the total production.
