Vacuuming machines for the meat industry

Whether you are packaging fresh or marinated meat, bone-in meat or sliced meat products, a vacuum-sealing machine is indispensable in the meat processing industry. Henkelman offers flexibility with a wide range of different types of machines, capacities, options and additional extras. The reliable machines guarantee continuity, are easy to clean and require little maintenance. You even have the option of a heavy duty version that can vacuum-pack for up to 20 hours a day. 

The benefits of a Henkelman for you


Flavor and weight retention

Vacuum-packing food products prevents the growth of aerobic bacteria and therefore extends shelf life without having to add preservatives. Vacuum-packed meat can then mature while retaining weight, flavour and aromas. This also prevents dehydration, freezer burn and mould. Vacuum packed meat has a longer shelf life compared to refrigeration and the products retain their quality when frozen. 

High quality

Henkelman machines are specially developed for the food production industry. The machines are easy to clean and require little maintenance, which safeguards continuity. All machines are CE or UL/CSA certified and meet all requirements. 

Optimal hygiene

Vacuum-sealing products means that they can be hygienically transported. This enables you to optimize stock by simply storing different products together. It also has benefits for transport.

Frequently asked questions


Can I vacuum pack different types of products at the same time?

Yes. For an optimal packaging result but you should take into account that the selected program settings are optimal for all products. 


Is the Polar vacuum packing machine suitable for industrial use?

Yes. The robust construction of the Polar makes these vacuum packing machines suitable for industrial use.


Is this vacuum packing machine suitable to be used in the food industry?

In general, foodstuffs should not come into direct contact with aluminium. As products are packaged in a vacuum bag, the product will never come into direct contact with the aluminium of the chamber. This means that a Falcon vacuum packing machine can be used in (kitchens in) the food industry. 


Can I connect these vacuum packing machines to other machines?

Henkelman automatic vacuum packing machines can be fitted in a line with other machines. However, they do not exchange data or communicate with other machines.
