Clips provide a popular sealing technology for meat products. Meat packaging, including raw, cooked and cook chill products, can be conveniently sealed using meat and bag clips.
Meat clips are made of plastic, aluminum or steel, and can be purchased in various sizes.
Meat clips are attached to meat product packaging using a table clipper, automated clipper or automated netting and bagging clipping systems. Many modern meat-processing systems are nearly fully automated, with the clipper attaching the clips to both ends of the casing as the final stage of the production process.
Many meat processors use innovative casing products from PCM that allow for ultra-tight clipping, easy processing and transferring of colors and flavors to the meat during cooking.
