Automatic Runway system for pigs

In comparison to a conventional manual runway operation, combining the automated runway system with the Frontmatec CO2 stunning system will give you the following advantages:

  • Higher productivity and yield
  • Improved meat quality due to improved animal welfare
  • Improved work environment with reduction of noise level in the runway area
  • Reduction in staff driving pigs to the stunner
  • Smooth handling and flow of pigs to the CO2 stunner

Obtain maximum yield with an automatic runway system for pigs

To ensure stress-free, group-wise handling of the pigs, the Frontmatec Automatic Runway works by means of various mechanical push/hoist gates. The automatically moving gates interlocked with pressure sensitive devices cannot harm the pigs while being driven towards the CO2 stunning system.

To obtain maximum yield, a PLC configured accordingly to the specific order controls the automatic single sequences of the group of pigs driven forward.
