Meyn: Deboning Solution M 1.0 enables precise operations with excellent output
Meyn has introduced the TDS Thigh Deboning Solution M 1.0, a system which serves as an advanced, standalone system for poultry producers worldwide.
The carousel principle enables market-leading productivity, with three models available and have capacities ranging from 3600 thighs per hour to 7200 thighs per hour (or 120 thighs per minute).
"The thigh deboner is an important new addition to Meyn's range of deboning systems," said Jeroen Bohm, product manager for Meyn Deboning Systems. "As a precise and highly efficient automatic system, it reduces labour costs by 35% relative to competitive systems, while producing thigh fillets with an outstanding level of presentation."
The thigh deboner is suitable for fresh and matured anatomical thighs, processing both left and right thighs with no handling prior to production. It is designed for chickens with a weight of approximately 1,700 - 5,100 gram (3.9-11 lbs), thus anatomical thighs with skin on that weigh 125 to 375 gram (0.28-0,8 lbs).
The system incorporates a number of sophisticated deboning actions, including the deskinner, and separation of the kneecaps from the fillet. This minimises the risk of bone fragments in the fillets and ensures that 86% of the meat is processed boneless. It also eliminates the need for trimming, further reducing labor costs.
