Automatic removal of
pork chine bone

1.400 middles per hour (left and right pieces)

Replaces hard manual labor
Consistent cutting quality 24/7

Improved yield - short pay back
Low maintenance costs

A 3D camera scans a non-machined anatomic part of the middle piece and advanced software calculates the sawing curve for the Chine Bone Saw which accurately cuts off the chine bone.

The pork middle piece consists of the loin and the breast. The chine bone is the part of the spinal cord which is left after splitting the pork carcass. The Chine Bone Saw works independently from the splitting quality.
