Deboning and trimming is a vital step in the manufacturing process by which a carcass is finished ready for sale. The deboning process entails removing bones from the carcass. This is ordinarily done via one of two ways.
- Table deboning
- Pace deboning
Table deboning is often best employed on cuts of meat that come from non-uniform carcasses. This method can be time and labour intensive and requires skilled workers to carry out the task.
Pace deboning, meanwhile, employs a conveyor belt system to transport a product from terminal to terminal. At each stop a worker makes one specific cut. This system can be very fast and efficient, moreover does not require skilled workers. However, pace deboning is best used only when working with uniform carcasses.
Once meat has been deboned, it then needs to be trimmed and packaged.
Tailored Deboning and Trimming Solutions
A well-designed deboning and trimming process should enable an operation to run efficiently with little downtime while also automating as many processes as possible to minimise manual intervention. It should also create an integrated line that runs seamlessly from one process to another.
At Wrightfield, we provide solutions that are tailored to the requirements of an individual operation. This is a factor that helps to optimise efficiency and yield as well as improving output. Ultimately, it is our goal to help a company to increase productivity and profitability.
