Overview

The Stork Thigh Fillet System can keep up with the highest hourly throughputs while processing thighs with utmost precision and consistency.
 

Labor saving

Manual shackling or rehanging is no longer necessary, as the process remains completely inline after the ACM-NT cut-up process. Thanks to the stable, optimized process, an absolute minimum of operators are needed to check and trim. Therefore the inline concept saves considerable labor.
 

Retail quality with inline efficiency
 

After the first module has made a knee joint incision, the (bypassable) skinning carrousel performs the critical skinning job with utmost precision. Subsequently, the Thigh Deboner module removes the bone using a unique, ingenious, though simple technique without subjecting the bone to excessive forces. Finally, the Thigh Fillet Harvester removes the knee cap from the thigh without leaving meat on it. Valuable meat surrounding the knee cap remains attached to the A-grade thigh fillet.
 

Consistent performance

The Stork Thigh Fillet System reproduces the work of a skilled manual operator in an industrial way, ensuring retail quality thigh meat. A consistent performance can be achieved for all products entering the system. The process is more stable than manual deboning could ever be.

The inline system can efficiently handle high speed lines and produce deboned thigh meat of high yield and quality.
