The Portio Portioner takes on Legacy Machinery


Legacy machinery could be costing food manufacturers more than they realise. The SF Scrappage Incentive is a direct response to our customers’ most commonly reported pain points – that is out-dated and unserviceable legacy machinery.

Developments in technology, regulation and concerns around labour requirements are putting growing pressure on food businesses.  Investment in production and capex are key drivers for growth because automation brings increased production output, improvements in product quality and reduction in waste.  It also helps solve skills and labour shortage, allowing the workforce to focus on areas where it would add more value.

We selected the Marelec PORTIO, an intelligent portioning machine, for the 6-month Scrappage Incentive, due to its energy savings compared to competitors, low cost of ownership, low water usage and high yield and ROI. 

To illustrate the savings that are achievable with the PORTIO, we set up a head to head trial, pitching the PORTIO against a legacy machine within a customers production site. As you can see the results confirmed a significant saving in yield and labour requirements, offering a payback within a 7-month period.
