BAADER LINCO Live Bird Handling is the most cost effective live bird handling and transport system for high speed processing lines. Designed to be loaded manually or by automatic catching systems, the module design with its large crate format ensures the highest loading per truck while ensuring optimal animal welfare. Reduced handling movements make this design highly suitable for high speed applications with excellent reliability. The highest hygiene standards are achieved through a stainless-steel construction. For lower speed applications and small plants, the LINCOload and traditional coop systems are alternative possible solutions.

BAADER LINCO’s hygienic crate and module washing systems are the key to good housekeeping and food safety. BAADER LINCO’s Live Bird Handling Systems are supplied with integral washing systems for live bird crates, drawers and transport modules. We also offer crate washers for process crates and lug boxes of most sizes and designs.

BAADER LINCO offers killing and defeathering solutions for all process types. New requirements in animal welfare are met with the modern Controlled Atmosphere Stunning (CAS) Systems which are integrated with the Live Bird Handling System and can be coupled to automatic killing machines followed by bleeding, multi-zone Air Scalding and Picking. Traditional electric stunners with a control system to meet current animal welfare standards can be offered. BAADER LINCO’s renowned small disc gear pickers achieve the highest performance results due to full, individual adjustability of each picking bank. The Rotapick provides a special picking solution for some processes.

PLUMATECH provides quality rubber picking fingers in various strengths, distinguished by their colours. PLUMATECH fingers offer maximum flexibility and excellent plucking performance without damaging the skin.

BAADER LINCO Evisceration Systems focus on removing the viscera without damage to organs or the carcass. From high speed, fully automatic systems to simple low speed manual systems, product quality and hygiene remains the focus. New developments include the ability to adjust automatic machines in production and fully automated giblet harvesting. The BAADER LINCO evisceration lines may be coupled to the killing and chilling lines with automatic transfer or automatic weigh-transfer machines for traceability.

BAADER LINCO Air and Water Chilling Systems ensure efficient chilling, enhancing product quality and shelf life. The unique Quick Air Chill System employs positive directed air flows to achieve an extended shelf life. It achieves minimal weight loss and +2°C deep muscle temperatures without freezing neck skins or wing tips. The system can incorporate maturation.

The LINCO flex weighing and grading equipment range includes overhead line weighing, belt weighing and weigh transfer applications. These systems can be coupled to quality grading, allowing birds and products to be selected for a combination of weight and quality for distribution to specific process areas. BAADER LINCO’s compact Easy Grader is a low cost stand-alone belt weigher which offers accurate weighing and batching solutions.

BAADER LINCO Automated overhead Cut-up systems include the ProFlex Premium and the ProFlex Classic. The ProFlex can be configured as an open line or compact system including versions for specialist food service products. Options include automatic transfer from other lines, weighing in-line, bypass of pre-programmed cutting units, halving breasts and thighs, whole leg weighing, thigh popping for food service and synchronized conveying systems.

SCHRÖDER injectors and massagers are used in many poultry marinating applications. This technology may be used to add brine mixes, flavours and colour to all poultry products. The new generation IMAX Injectors, Brimax Mixing Systems and Max Massagers are equipped with intelligent technology which provides live process monitoring and traceability. New process technology allows the addition of poultry trimmings to whole muscle cuts improving sensory quality and yield.

BAADER chicken front half deboning offers a high yield, fully automated solution to produce single or butterfly fillets, with or without skin, with or without tenders and with or without back meat. The new generation machines are adjusted while in production for maximum process up-time.

STEEN thigh and drum deboners are a very efficient solution to give labour and yield savings for this process. Bone detection can be incorporated into the deboning solution.

High Pressure:
LIMA high pressure meat recovery systems provide high yield, fine textured meat suitable for emulsion type products. Typical raw materials are deboned carcasses,
downgrade portions, necks and waste from low pressure meat recovery systems.

Low Pressure:
BAADER low pressure meat recovery systems provide high quality mince-like structured, separated meat from deboned carcasses, downgrade portions, necks etc.

STEEN offers skinning machines for most applications. The STEEN mid-wing tulip processor has specially been developed to create unique and trendy “tulip” wing snacks. The STEEN Spare-rib cutter will optimize the revenue of the thigh production by transforming the thighs into value added snacks.
