Marel Athena

Marel’s ATHENA system can handle a wide variety of chicken breeds with their different shapes and weights. Breast weights from 300 to 1500 grams can be processed. No manual adjustments are needed when big chicken breasts are fed to the ATHENA. Based on the data of the measurement module at the start of the process, the other modules will set themselves to handle each individual breast, minimizing the need for (manual) trimming afterwards.

It collects data and tracks products through the process. Using this data, ATHENA’s integrated software gives real-time insight into line occupancy, loader efficiency and the machine’s general health status. It also monitors performance per product carrier in terms of product loss, successfully completed deboning steps, carrier damage and more.
