Carometec A/S, a leader in carcass grading equipment celebrates their fourth year of operation under this name. Previously known as SFK Technology A/S, the company changed their name to Carometec in 2009. The name Carometec is derived from the Latin word, "caro", meaning “meat” and the word, "metec" to express “measurement technique”. Sporting a logo with graphics that “symbolise sound and light waves as a measuring principle”, Carometec has influenced over three decades of objective carcass grading equipment.
Rich in history, the company’s beginnings were within the Danish meat industry of 1931. Through time, the innovative company and its products have played an important role in the evolution of equipment for carcass grading, as well as in quality control for food safety and sanitation.
Carometec’s widely used “Fat-O-Meter” is the current industry standard for carcass grading equipment. This followed their 1948 introduction of the handheld, “Introscope”, the first probe equipment for grading carcasses, and other technology.
The company’s 1995 introduction of real 3-D ultrasonic technology, the “AutoFom” ushered in yet another ‘first’ and the newest generation of carcass grading equipment.
Until now, grading systems have relied on a single point measurement. For example, using one measurement, the previously mentioned Fat-O-Meter “transforms light reflectance values into actual fat and muscle measurements.”
The new 3-D device reveals comprehensive measurements of the complete carcass. Use of the AutoFom is spreading among the leading meat companies around the world. The information this new device provides for management allows for not only grading and sorting, but for calculating accurate payments to livestock suppliers as well.
“As a world leader in carcass grading and high quality sanitation equipment, Carometec is proud to have had their name for four years now. Our company looks forward to continuing to produce high quality equipment while also researching the future of food technology now and in years to come,” states Jeb Supple of Carometec.
2013 finds this privately owned company in a strong financial position. To remain at the helm of the industry, Carometec A/S allocates approximately 12% of their annual revenue to research and development and plans to continue to launch innovative new products to improve meat processing and sanitation equipment.
