The DeboFlex is a modular and flexible platform that revolutionizes pork cutting and deboning through the innovative technique of vertically hanging primals. Designed to enhance the efficiency, sustainability and profitability of your processing line, the DeboFlex expands the range of pork products you can produce, resulting in a more agile business.

The revolutionary platform seamlessly harmonizes automation with ergonomically designed workstations, creating a safe and comfortable environment for your operators. By automating and simplifying critical aspects of the processing workflow, the DeboFlex enhances yield, throughput, and product quality while decreasing your dependence on labor.

Benefits of hanging pork cutting and deboning include:

  • Increased operator "knife in meat" time
  • Wider product variety
  • Optimized raw material
  • Improved shelf life
  • Deskilled tasks and no heavy lifting

DeboFlex streamlines operations, automating tasks for quicker and more precise results, ensuring a consistently high-quality product. Along the DeboFlex platform, product-to-product contact is virtually eliminated, significantly reducing cross contamination through hand to product contact.

Efficient and dependable pork processing

The innovative conveyor system of the DeboFlex offers a streamlined and dependable process flow, delivering a heightened level of efficiency and precision in pork cutting and deboning. It boasts a cutting-edge conveyor system that automates the positioning of primals directly in front of operators, allowing them to concentrate on one task before seamlessly progressing through the system and guaranteeing the smooth transition of each primal from one workstation to the next. The significant benefits include reduced labor, improved shelf life and maximized raw material utilization.

Improved working conditions

DeboFlex workstations are thoughtfully designed to cater to the specific requirements of each stage in the pork cutting and deboning process, as well as the individual attributes of the workers, thereby reducing the necessity for highly specialized operators. These ergonomic workstations, featuring adjustable heights, facilitate seamless task execution, minimizing physical strain and lowering the potential for workplace injuries.

In addition to the ergonomic benefits, this design fosters a more inclusive work environment, making the industry more appealing to a diverse workforce.

Increased levels of hygiene

With a minimal number of contact points, the DeboFlex greatly reduces the risk of product contamination. The design also minimizes waiting times, reducing the number of products held in large tubs. Products flows rapidly through deboning, leading to significantly fewer unplanned delays.
