Strip cutting made easy

The Marel STC StripCutters are easy-to-use meat cutting machines that produces fixed-size portions at high speed. They cut your bone-less and non-frozen products into strips, splits, steaks or diced portions, and are available in 600 and 1000 mm belt widths. You have a vast range of cutting options as a result of easy adjustment of both speed and product width.

How it works

The infeed conveyor brings the product to the cutting section for accurate portioning size. To minimize giveaway, it is important to position the product correctly at the infeed conveyor. This can be done by using laser indication or stainless steel pointers. The products, which are prevented from moving during cutting, will be delivered on the outfeed conveyor in fixed-sized portions, all ready for packing.

The cutting is carried out by a series of circular blades mounted on a rotating shaft. The distance between the blades determines the size of the portions. 


  • Multiple products can be cut using the same StripCutter configuration
  • Fixed pointers for accurate product infeed positioning–laser or pins
