Tallangatta Chiller Sortation system and data capture for smallstock plant

This project developed a chiller automation system to group and transfer graded Lamb/Mutton carcases along chiller rails, thereby improving chiller efficiency, labour reduction, accuracy put-away and timely reporting.   The chiller Management system has a simple user interface that will automatically enable entry to chiller rail, target grade and direct to a rail. The system will also count grades, types and advise when rail is full, redirecting to an alternative rail. The system enhances the capabilities of the carcase grading system to deliver chiller putaway dependant on AUSMEAT carcase and customer requirements.


There are a number of benefits gained from the sortation system

  • Labour reduction
  • Timely/accurate reporting – which is beneficial to different departments of the organisation – Loadout, Production, Sales, Administration, Livestock buying & Management.
  • Improved grading and sorting ability for production staff
  • Cost effective and efficient solution to increased requirements in key areas from export accreditation & growth of sales
