Automatic Hanging Primal Cutting

Frontmatec has introduced a ground-breaking, automatic vertical lamb primal cutting arrangement for splitting the carcass into shoulder, middle and leg/chump.

The benefits of using automatic hanging primal cutting:

  • Precise and clean cuts
  • Less bone dust
  • Optimized yield through reduced product loss
  • Less handling of the carcass

Automatic vertical primal cutting

With our recent developments within automatic vertical lamb primal cutting, we offer a solution with less handling, high capacity and consistency in the quality of the products.

The lamb carcass is fed into the arrangement hanging on the railing system. An operator marks the cutting position of the shoulder cut with a laser marking unit, and with this information the system calculates the cut of the leg/chump.

The knives are then automatically height adjusted. A gripping system containing four grippers is automatically adjusted in height and horizontally, to stabilize the carcass when cutting.

The system includes separate conveyor system exits for front quarter and barrels with the leg/chump conveyed out on the railing. Capacity: 300 - 400 per hour.
