Automatic Driveway Systems


Animal welfare has become increasingly important for modern slaughter houses. Pigs in the lairage can often become stressed because operators do not have a thorough understanding of animal handling. At the same time, manual handling is often labor intensive and expensive.

To overcome these problems, we have developed a unique animal handling system consisting of automatic and moving gates.

The system is ideal for all slaughter houses with a capacity exceeding 200 pigs per hour, but can handle up to 1,500 pigs per hour.
