The February issue of Meat + Poultry Magazine, a publication for news, ideas, trends, innovations, issues & more that impact the meat & poultry processing industry, features an in-depth look at the new Daily’s Premium Meats Bacon Plant in St. Joseph, Missouri. This $41.5 million plant produces sliced-to-order naturally hardwood smoked bacon and includes approximately 22,000 sf of refrigerated storage & coolers ranging in temperature from 34 degrees to a -10 degree freezer.
Fusion Tech had the privilege of supplying design, layout, and equipment fabrication services for two of the production rooms in the new bacon plant: a bacon injection, pepper, and hang line as well as a bacon press room.

Our Project Managers and SolidWorks Designers provided layout and design, including 3D modeling of the equipment within the room, of a system to take bellies from smokehouse trees, remove the belly combs, and align them to enter the belly press, and the conveyors to take the bellies from the press and prep for stacking to go to slicing. This solution included:
- Sanitary Conveyor Systems
