OUR SOLUTION

Automating Meat Fabrication Tasks

Marble’s robotic solutions reduce the labor needs of beef and pork processing facilities and improve workplace safety by conducting tasks with a history of worker injury. Marble’s engineers are often on the fabrication floor with facility managers and facility engineers to ensure the technology meets their needs and fits within their constraints.  

 

Marble is adding resilience to the meat industry and preparing it for the future.
