Meat processing plants are extremely fast passed – thousands of animals are slaughtered a day and the longer the meat is exposed the greater the chance of contamination.  Fast, efficient delivery of the the clips is paramount.

Answer: Touchless.
Touchless dispensers are fast and effortless, increase productivity and further reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
