For the production of cured meat we supply you, the customer, with injectors and vacuum tumblers and with the appropriate mixing and filter technology. Different injectors are available for the various types of meat ensuring optimal injection results of the highest product quality. As far as the production of brine is concerned, our scope of supply includes systems which allow for mixing in of additives. Generally, they are offered in a design and dimensioning matching the injector. By fitting the injector with a cooling jacket

pr e - produ c ts


EMF delivers precision machines and equipment exclusively for the production of pre-products such as: conveyor systems for fine cutting and portioning, band saws and portion cutters for preciseweight cutting, tumblers for marinating, machines for the packaging of the preproducts in dishes or on trays and vacuum packaging and thermoforming machines with labelling.

Portion cutter

All machines supplied by EMF adhere to the latest EU hygiene regulations and to the standards of the countries of installation, thus ensuring perfect processing and product quality. Naturally, inert gas (MAP) can be used for certain packages to maintain the product quality and extend shelf life.

you achieve a consistently high quality of brine, and at the same time you keep the microbiological load at an optimal low level. In addition, filters can be applied to remove suspended matter, thus ensuring a uniform injection of the brine by the injection needles. To suit your production requirements our vacuum tumblers are optionally available with or without cooling jackets. For each application we offer you the appropriate tumbler system. In this way you always achieve optimal results while your products are processed in a gentle and careful manner.

S A U S AGE MEA T P R O D U C T I O N Equipment for the production of sausage meat is exposed to extreme mechanical stress. We therefore offer only reliable equipment that has proven successful in the global market. Whether you require equipment for coarse or fine mincing, mixing or emulsifying machines delivered by EMF with contact parts made of stainless steel or food safe plastic you always get optimal results, e. g. for the production of boiled, cooked, or raw sausage. Our machines are available for plants and production capacities of any quantity starting from the equipment in a butcher‘s shop up to the fine sausage meat line, intended for large industrial entities.

Meat grinders are available as stuffing, automatic, mixing grinders or as grinders for frozen meat - naturally with all requested additional equipment. Cutters are delivered as standard or vacuum in accordance with the technological requirements and with various accessories. Complete lines for the production of fine sausage meat, for example with a continuous cutter, provide high production output in large and consistent batches. For the mixing of batches we supply standard or vacuum mixers, always perfectly adapted for their intended use, technological requirements and the production quantity. For quality assurance in the production of boiled sausages we can supply ice generators.

Thermal Division The equipment for the thermal department is an important technological area within the production chain. It has a decisive effect on the overall quality of the product, its appearance and durability. Smoke gives a very special taste and an incomparable flavour to meat and sausage products. EMF provides thermal systems for smoked products in addition to drying, cooking, cooling and maturing. The universal chambers with a fully automatic process control system ensure consistent quality at smoking, convection cooking, baking, and steaming. As far as the smoke generating systems are concerned, you have the choice between smoke generators operating on friction, smoulder smoke, or liquid smoke basis. The systems ensure continuous production with minimal thermal loss. Furthermore, they work as closed systems, i. e. no additional costs are incurred, e. g. for thermal after-burning units, catalytic converters or air washers. The bodies of the units are made of stainless steel and are hermetically sealed.


Our high-efficiency cooling systems provide for rapid cooling of the cooked products. Thus, the temperature range critical for microbial growth (between 50째C and 30째C) is passed through quickly. The systems are designed for the cooling of scalded and cooked sausages as well as for meat and fish products. Our cooling systems do not only improve product quality and provide longer shelf life, they also reduce possible cooling deficits. Regardless if you produce large or small, thin or bulky, smoked, air-dried products, and/or products ripened by noble mould, NESS-climate cold smoke and air-maturing systems are suitable for a large range of applications. NESS Climate Class allows you to get defined and standardized maturing and drying conditions and as a result, a consistent and high quality product ensuring product safety.

To cook meat and meat products we offer cooking kettles and cooking systems for any production volume, equipped with different types of heating.

Filling and closing also means getting the meat and sausage products into the right shape.

Single-clip machine

However, the main function of the filling machines, whether it is a piston or a vacuum filler, is the precise and gentle filling and portioning of pasty food or the forming by means of appropriate attachments. They are versatile and offer a wide range of applications, ranging from traditional sausage and meat products up to new convenience and trendy products. All machines ensure a constant high quality product, regardless if it is portioned in artificial or natural casings or in any other receptacle. High production capacity and easy handling of the machines ensures time saving and consequently lower production costs. For the closing of the filled sausage receptacles we offer you various types of clipping machines starting with manual clipping devices, including semi-automatic double clippers through to automatic double clipping units with automatic suspension. Naturally, all of the machines and devices permit you to mark products with production-relevant information, e. g. manufacturing and bestbefore dates.

First and foremost, the purpose of packaging is to protect the meat and sausage products. They need to get from the production plant to the consumer without deterioration from microorganisms, mechanical or climatic impact. Apart from this, the packaging is important for optimal presentation of the products and is consequently a tool of sales promotion. EMF supplies equipment for the packaging of your products in any desired system, for any application of varying production quantities.

tray sealers or thermoforming packaging machines, supplemented by equipment for manual or automatic labelling or pricing, there are various options. All machines have been designed to meet the highest demands in every day production, and they are compatible with peripheral devices such as slicers, metal detectors and carton processing equipment. Our machines are suitable for every application.

All units have been designed to allow optimal, full documentation, traceability and compliance with the HACCP concept.

The scales offered by EMF are designed especially for the food plant industry and meet all the requirements for operating in damp areas. Naturally, all weighing machines are compatible with existing computer systems, i. e. data management and can be altered in accordance with your individual needs. For quality optimization during the production process thermometers, pH-meters and salt meters are available.

Complying with hygiene rules is an essential component of quality management in food production.

In addition to the main equipment required for the production process EMF also delivers all related items.

Therefore, devices for personal hygiene, for cleaning and disinfecting of appliances, equipment and containers as well as for the cleaning of production areas are absolutely necessary.

These include tables, pallets, transport containers, smoking and feeding trolleys for lifting and tilting units, cooking moulds, transportation equipment, labour protection equipment as well as workwear and hygienic clothing. Some of these products are manufactured in our own manufacturing plant in Barth.

EMF provides the right equipment for any application and any size of plant. Our large scope of supply includes mobile cleaning devices as well as highly efficient stationary cleaning and disinfecting units. Laboratory equipment for the examination of samples taken for checking the achieved cleaning and disinfection results are also part of our delivery programme.
