Our equipment solutions are durable, reliable, and compliant to accommodate food products ranging from raw marinated chicken to fruits, vegetables, herbs, and ready-to-eat meals. With MARCO North America, manufacturers gain productivity benefits such as:
MARCO North America supplies modular and tailored equipment designs suitable for use in the field or at your manufacturing facility. We aim to simplify your processes while maximizing postharvest yield and productivity.
Our modular and customizable workstations include table-mounted scales, red-light / yellow-light / green-light LED indicators, and raw product totes with overhead light fixtures for when you need to grade products at the table. As the scale is integrated into the workstation table, it reduces the risk of damage to protect your investment. Optional extras include tray storage, angled tray holders, and waste chutes for improved worker ergonomics and efficient processing and lights for product inspections.
Made from 304 stainless steel with fully welded, folded channel or tubular construction, our high precision tabletop scales are affordable and incorporate RFID logon to maintain worker traceability during weighing and packing operations.
Automate the movement of products between processing stages with sanitary conveyor solutions for your packing facility or processing plant. MARCO North America provides straight-line conveyors, sanitary spirals, and transferless configurations that increase throughput and improve cycle times with reduced labor dependency.
Designed to handle wet environments, MARCO’s combination weighers are semi-automatic solutions that have a toolless design for easy changeovers. Each scale pan weighs individual portions to ensure you never over or under-pack a product and are easy to use, reducing your dependency on skilled labor. For the greatest impact, the combination weighers are best used when both weight and count are relevant factors during packing operations.
Our tray or “punnet” case packing solutions incorporate automated weigh stations that divert any under-filled tray to a different workstation for corrective action. Whether you are packing fresh foods or RTE products, MARCO’s automated case packing solutions ensure you have consistent and uniform packing throughout the last stages of your product lines.
End-of-line checkweighers and metal detectors provide additional assurance that each product meets the production requirements. Verify that no foreign, metal objects are contaminating your products while ensuring that each tray or pack weight meets the customer’s specifications. Our checkweighers and metal detectors link with our software solutions, ensuring you can maintain demonstrable compliance with your QC checks before releasing products from the facility. There is also a single touchscreen control to set up the entire MARCO production line reducing the dependency for technical expertise to set up.
Our scales are fit for purpose and come with an open-channel hygienic design. The red-light / yellow-light / green-light indicator head includes a gesture sensor to initiate tare when an operator reports to the station. In wet environments, across-the-line scales provide better safety and ergonomics while providing buffer zones with constant flow of raw materials to help maximize productivity.
Labeling and scanning solutions enable you to maintain traceability over all your operations and track each product through your manufacturing process. For maximum availability, a double head and auto-changeover labeling machine will reduce downtimes and allow for restocking without stopping the line.
Our equipment solutions can integrate with additional systems to provide semi-automated operations at critical stages in the process. With automated end-of-the-lane case packing systems, integrated checkweighers and metal detectors, as well as combination weighing solutions, you can expedite labor-intensive processes while maintaining product quality with increased productivity.
