Marel Launches Frank-A-Matic Linker

At Agroprodmash 2019, Marel will show how the new Frank-A-Matic Linker can benefit Russian sausage producers. We invite you to visit our stand (booth 21C80) to discover the latest developments in further processing technology.


Marel is excited to announce the fourth generation in its line of successful sausage linkers. The new Frank-A-Matic Linker series incorporates over 50 years of technological expertise in equipment and processing knowledge. The newest iteration of the Frank-A-Matic Linker offers the market’s best performance in producing sausages with cellulose, collagen, or polyamide casings. The linkers have improved weight and length control in addition to increased throughput speeds. These improvements come from a highly sophisticated redesign of the metering pump, linking unit, hopper and stuffing system.

The history of Townsend Linkers and the Frank-A-Matic Linker name is well known to the global market. This new generation of machines will build on that strong foundation first set in the 1960’s when Ray Townsend introduced the original Frank-A-Matic DB linkers.

The new Frank-A-Matic Linker represents the latest innovations and improved performance. From simple adjustments during operation to easier sanitation and maintenance, the Frank-A-Matic Linker LK 0400 series is setting new benchmarks for sausage production.
