With the inclusion of MAJA’s FP 240 volumetric portioning machine, Marel now has the most extensive selection of volumetric machines on the market with a range of solutions from small processors to fully automated high-volume processing lines.

Flexible, volumetric portioning

Both the V-Cut 160 and V-Cut 200 are designed to cut boneless non-frozen meat into fixed-weight portions of uniform shape.

Marel built the V-Cut 160 for small to medium-sized processors. Thanks to its symmetric build, the V-Cut 160 is conveniently operable from either side. Available with an in-line portion take-away or a 90-degree conveyor, with an exit to the left or right, the design of the V-Cut 160 maximizes flexibility.

Optimal product presentation

The V-Cut 200 delivers single portions for direct packing, flattening, process weighing or shingled portions for automatic or manual packing. The V-Cut 200 is best-in-class for forming odd shaped muscle portions such as prime beef steaks. Simply load crust frozen boneless meat into the V-Cut 200’s expanded opening where the unique side press forms the meat into a uniform shape for cutting that results in exceptional accuracy in weight and thickness.

Variety of cutting possibilities

Marel’s volumetric portion cutters provide a wide selection of cutting possibilities to suit a variety of processing needs—from portions and butterflies, to cubes and strips. Easily changes cuts by swapping out the portioning plate or template set.
