Anatomic leg cutting module type JL and JLR

  • Highest possible yield
  • Most oysters harvested with the leg
  • Minimal bone contamination (HP executions)


JL and JLR anatomic leg cutting modules were originally developed for the ACM cut-up system for use in the Japanese market where almost all products are de-boned and every effort made to harvest the maximum quantity of meat from the product. Nowadays the module is used in other markets as well.

The module separates the rear half into two anatomic legs and a back piece.

With the JL version legs are discharged from the module itself. With the JLR version legs are left suspended from the ACM shackle for any further downstream operations which may be needed, i.e. in-line thigh and drumstick deboning or whole leg deboning. There are various options available for the de-boned meat or bulk markets.

  • Suitable for broiler rear halves with max. 2-4 ribs
  • Easy by-pass possible
  • Optional integrated vacuum collecting bins for back pieces and skin
  • Easy access for technical setting (outside module)
