I. Meat, sausage and fish products
1. ConPro products (hanging, cutting, forming)
Product
Country
international
Product type
dry sausage, fresh sausage, fish sausage
Calibre range
8 mm – 32 mm
Production process
Machine setup
The Handtmann ConPro-System, consisting of three modular
ConPro-System:
function units, produces endless sausage strings. The filling
and the aginate casing are co-extruded continuously and
with high accuracy to one product string by two vacuum
fillers. The casing is based on alginate and encases the
product like a casing and hardens in a fixation solution. By means of a separating and shaping unit, round shaped
sausage ends can be produced. Hung onto a hanger or
cutted into individual portions, the product can efficiently be transported to downstream processing systems.

The collating unit is an optional extension of the ConPro-System:
ConPro-System. The continuously produced fresh sausage
portions can be deposited sorted in groups on the collating
belt for further processing by the collating module. Additionally, the fresh sausage portions can be loaded into
trays directly after the cutting process. In this case the
collating belt will be replaced by a tray dispenser.

The Handtmann ConPro system has been enhanced with ConPro-System:
the “linking” function. With the co-extruder linking head, a casing is produced, the product is filled into the casing and it is then linked by means of a voider unit. The product is then divided into individual portions and the products are processed in horizontal position.
As well, the ConPro system has been developed with the
„linking-hanging“ function.

Alternatively, especially for large product volumes, the
Burger production:
supplementary unit MBF (Multi Burger Former) equipped
with flattening belt can be used for the production of
home-made burgers. The product flow coming from the
vacuum filler is divided into two to four lanes. By means of
servo-driven forming plates the products are formed directly
after the flow divider. Afterwards the products become
flattened to the desired thickness between the two transport
belts.
