MAJA machines are in daily use in different business sections. The main target groups are meat processing companies, starting from small traditional butcheries until highly-specialized industrial processors all over the world. But also poultry processors, kebab producers, the fish business and food retailing companies rely on machines made by MAJA.

Derinding machines:

Manual / open derinders are standard solution for round meat cuts; also available with defatting device allowing derinding and defatting in one and the same operation.

Conveyorized derinding machines are an integral part of every meat processing line. The MAJA product portfolio offers solutions for any set of individual requirements. MAJA conveyorized derinding machines come at different cutting widths, with or without cutting command, mobile on a subframe or suspended over the processing belts, as a single, stand-alone machine or as a fully line-capable element of a complex processing line.

Membrane skinning machines:

The quality of a membrane skinner is measured through yield and the quality of the result. MAJA membrane skinners offer an ergonomically optimized work table and various setup alternatives, so that the machine can be perfectly integrated with any processing layout. Factories that skin tons of ham pieces in multi-shift operation every day should integrate fully automatic MAJA machines. In most cases, their sophisticated membrane skinning approach allows for unanticipated savings.

Fresh meat portioning machines:

By applying MAJA slicing technology, plants can product at optimal cost-efficiency and meet all of their customers' requirements.

From the end of the 90s on, when the meat industry demanded industrial cutting solutions, MAJA has been developing portion control slicing systems. MAJA's product portfolio comprises circular blade-cutters, which cut slices at equal thickness. It comprises weight-controlled systems, which portion meat at +/-2gr by means of a constant volume process, before they automatically place the portions in trays - ready to be sold at a minimal give-away.

MAJA ice machines:

MAJA Flake Ice is used in boiled sausage production. For perfect sanitary conditions in food processing, you will find practical solutions, such as the HY-GEN principle of sanitary ice production by easy manual cleaning of the water tank. Or by fully automatic cleaning thanks to the patented evaporator self cleaning system MAJA-SCS. Big choice of ice transport and storage systems.
