Vent Cutters

Proven solution for the highest yields

  • Reliable and consistent removal of both vent and bursa fabricii
  • Accurate process that does not damage the intestine
  • Sets a benchmark for safety and hygiene


Hygienic and efficient operations

Marel Vent Cutters efficiently clean, clamp and draw out the vent. Thanks to improved product positioning, the back, kidneys and tail remain undamaged, thereby maximizing yield.

Suited for non-uniform product infeed

Precise product positioning before operations take place ensures reliable and consistent cutting. Marel Vent Cutters have been specifically designed for correcting for size and proportions, while also preventing mutual contact of products.

Sets a benchmark for safety and hygiene

Vent Cutters can be uncoupled from the overhead conveyor by lowering the carousel pneumatically, without affecting technological settings. The carousel can then be turned manually for cleaning. To reduce the time needed for cleaning, Vent Cutters have an open design, making them very accessible.

Precise positioning for a perfect cut

Vent Cutters are fine-tuned to work with different shapes and sizes. The machine’s units stay in contact with products for longer, giving plenty of time for positioning, fine-tuning and carrying out the vent-cutting process.

Works with a wide product range

More time and space result in an almost perfect vent-cutting job on heavier bird weights and on flocks with wider weight spreads. Marel Vent Cutters are the perfect tools for variable product input material, up to the heaviest birds in the industry.

  • Precise product positioning before operation
  • Reliable and consistent cutting
