Automated J-Cutting Unit makes leg deboning even more profitable
One of the most important but also labor intensive processes to debone whole legs is to make the pre cut (J-cut) along the drum and thigh bone. Making a proper J-cut is a critical step to ensure good yields and high quality boneless leg meat that meets all boneless dark meat requirements. With the new automated J-cutting unit, all the issues with manual J-cutting are addressed making the investment in leg deboning automation even more justifiable and giving it an even fast return on investment.
Significant reduction in labor cost
Not only can the New J-Cutting station save up to 4-6 people per shift but it also addresses potentially costly health issues related to manual J-Cutting. It also eliminates ongoing and expensive training cost, particularly in plants that have high employee turn over.
Because every application, situation and plant lay out is different Foodmate has developed both an integrated J-Cutting station that is part of the OPTI LTD Leg Deboner and a stand alone machine that can be integrated into a Foodmate Flex Cut Up System.
