At H&C, we are constantly innovating to develop solutions that can enhance efficiency and drive growth in your business.

When talking to our customers around the world, they have the same challenges in their processing businesses: labour, worker safety, hygiene and product safety and quality control. The most cost-effective way to address these issues is automation.

Our point of difference lies in our ability to develop and deliver custom solutions in response to each customer’s specific needs.

Drawing on our full range of equipment and integrating these with additional equipment from other suppliers, H&C can provide complete line integration and optimisation.

  • Meat Compactor

    The AiCo Meat Compactor is designed to automatically compact meat packed in corrugated cartons.

    It is normally installed in line with the AiCo Carton Lidder. The use of the compactor with the lidder produces a consistent high-quality presentation of the packed cartons.

    The AiCo Meat Compactor aids in the packing of flat cartons, providing safer handling and enabling an increased volume of cartons in containers for shipping. The estimated increase in container load when using the compactor is up to 8%.

    The compactor has a small footprint and is easy to use, with robust design and proven reliability. It is suitable for low to high speed operations.
