The BBC 1500W backbone cutter is Marel’s 100 % safe, easy to use and way to cut spare ribs from pork. It is the most adaptable spare rib cutter on the market.
The BBC1500W produces spare ribs by cutting the ribs of the split backbone. The horizontal band saw is able to cut very close to the spine, much closer than an operator could on a conventional band saw. This results in an extra yield of up to 2%.
With its thin, high speed saw blade the BBC1500W makes clean cuts, without bone particles or splinters, resulting in the highest possible quality of spare ribs.
How does it work?
The BBC1500W backbone cutter is an automatic band saw that removes the spare ribs from pork backbones. The backbone is fed onto the infeed table, where the infeed wheels pull it into the machine and over the cutting edge of the band saw blade, which separates the spare ribs from the backbone. The remains of the backbone are discharged at the other end of the machine. The spare ribs drop onto a conveyor belt for packaging or further processing.
Both the position of the horizontal cutting edge and the width of the infeed table can be adapted to the size of the backbones. This makes the BBC1500W the only spare rib cutter on the market that cuts backbones pork, sow and boar, with or without neck bones.
Average capacity is between 1200 to 1350 pieces/hour, with a maximum of about 1500 pieces/hour.
Even more value can be added by feeding the backbone remains into a meat harvesting system.
