GlobalMeatNews is pleased to welcome exciting US researcher Ai-Ping Hu as our latest speaker for the Wednesday 7 February webinar: Automate, Integrate, Accelerate.

Hu, the third speaker for our automation efficiency forum, is a well-known analyst whose views on cutting-edge technology have been featured in The Guardian​ and Daily Mail Online​, among others.

He is a senior research engineer from Georgia Tech Research Institute (GRTI). Based in the city of Atlanta, GTRI claim to invest US$350m in advanced technology solutions, innovative prototypes and scientific and engineering research every year.

GMN is delighted to welcome the participation of Ai-Ping Hu, who will present some of the latest developments in automation that promise to take the meat industry to the next level,​” said GMN editor Rod Addy.

“With the addition of Steve Hinchly, European sales and marketing director at Krehalon and Stuart McBride, area sales manager for Frontmatec, all the presenters guarantee to be thought-provoking and offer strong practical applications for meat processors, as well as the opportunity to answer your specific questions.​”

Automate, Integrate, Accelerate

Join Ai-Ping Hu on Wednesday 7 February, where the latest developments in automation go under the microscope. His presentation touches on machine learning and how this can develop algorithms to teach robots how to cut, slice and dice meat as expertly as a master butcher. Hu will be speaking with Steven Hinchly and Stuart McBride. All three speakers will address questions including:

  • How can end-to-end automation help meat processors manage the pressures of rising labour and production costs as retailers and consumers resist price hikes?
  • How can plants integrate cutting-edge automation by moving away from legacy systems? 
  • What can automated meat packaging solutions do to cut labour costs and improve overall production flows?

The free webinar kicks off at 15:00 CET on Wednesday 7 February 2018 and is kindly sponsored by Krehalon.

Automate, Integrate, Accelerate


As rising labour and production costs show no signs of abating and consumers and retailers resist price rises on shelf while demanding improved traceability, how can end-to-end automation help? Our experts explore the key challenges inherent in rolling out integrated, holistic solutions and the equipment available to meet manufacturers’ needs. Sponsor and packaging automation specialist Krehalon will showcase its Shrink Bag Replacement (SBR™) technology. The company will also highlight meat packing solutions to cut labour costs, improve production flow and hygiene, reduce packaging material use and pack leakers and ultimately drive down total pack costs. Meanwhile, at the start of the line, Denmark-based Frontmatec will explore how it is breaking the speed barrier, establishing new frontiers in automated livestock slaughter.
