Until now, deboning white meat has been a very labor intensive and inefficient process. It has required a lot of skilled labor, which is becoming difficult to find, train and retain. Further, current automated solutions require a large footprint, are expensive to maintain, capital intensive and require significant staffing due to rework. The NEW Foodmate MAXIMA Breast Cap Deboner is designed to address all the above issues by introducing new PLC controlled technology to automatically deskin the breast, remove the wishbone and remove the tender from the outer filet with minimal bone content and high yields.

The meat that is produced presents well for tray packing and is suitable for many food service applications. The Maxima has a small footprint and can produce up to 50 breast caps per minute with minimal loading, inspection and trimming staff. The Maxima’s sanitary design consists of large access doors for easy cleaning and maintenance to address food safety concerns. The machine has large see through doors which provide optimal internal visibility to all moving parts andvisual performance monitoring.

The new optional automatic wishbone remover (AWR)  harvests the entire wishbone with minimum weight loss. The unit is extremely easy to adjust and maintain.
