OPTI Drumstick Deboner

After loading the drumsticks, the first process is the automatic Pre-cutter where a cam operated arm and blade make a cut along the side of the bone. Making a pre-cut helps prevent bone breakage during deboning and makes it easy for the trimmers to inspect and trim the meat without first having to cut it open.

Optimal yields delivered worldwide

Compact, efficient and flexible.

The next process after the pre-cutter is cutting the tendons . The tendons are cut as the drumstick rotates 360 degrees along a series of circular blades. To ensure that the pin bone stays with the bone during the deboning process, Foodmate developed a special device that masks the tendon which connects to the pin bone during the tendon cutting process.

After all the tendons are cut, an innovative scraper design pulls the meat off the bone providing the highest yield, meat quality and minimal bone content..
