Labor-saving with enhanced output

The Thigh Fillet System reproduces the work of a skilled manual operator in an industrial way, ensuring retail quality thigh meat every time. A consistent performance can be achieved for all products entering the system. Thanks to the stable, optimized process, an absolute minimum of operators are needed to check and trim.

Simple techniques without excessive forces

After the first module has made a knee joint incision, the skinning carousel performs the critical skinning job with utmost precision. The bone is removed using a unique and simple technique that does not subject the bone to excessive forces.

Minimum residues at the bones and knee cap

The revolutionary Thigh Fillet Harvester removes the kneecap from the thigh without leaving meat on it. Valuable meat surrounding the kneecap remains attached to the A-grade thigh fillet.
