Removal of keel from poultry butter­flies

For poultry processors splitting butterflies, the Marel StripCutter offers great opportunities for removing the keel. The StripCutter solution shows increased yield results compared to traditional keel removal. As an additional feature it is possible to have the StripCutter automatically separate the keel into either a tub or onto a conveyor.

Full integration with Marel equipment

The Marel StripCutter is applicable as a stand-alone machine as well as compatible with other Marel equipment. By placing a Marel Portioncutter after the StripCutter the butterflies will be accurately cut to fixed weight.

Poultry tender downsizing

Marel’s solution for tender downsizing is designed for poultry processing companies, producing big bird tenders. With the Marel StripCutter and an I-Cut PortionCutter, Marel o­ffers solutions with the importance of end product presentation in mind. The StripCutter produces perfect length and uniform size and shape on all tenders.


The StripCutter can also be quickly and easily turned into a StripSplitter for splitting tenders, with only a few modifications.

The principal difference is that the belt runs straight through the machine, so that the products retain their position on the belt during cutting. There are also fewer blades on the shaft (max 4).
