The VOC Vent Cutter / Opening Machine combines two functions in a single machine: cutting the vent loose, so it can be removed from the carcass, and opening the abdominal skin. The viscera pack can then be removed undamaged. The VOC is available in several versions, suitable for both smaller and larger birds, and for lines with capacities of up to 10,500 birds per hour (175 birds per minute).
With just one carousel for two operations instead of separate carousels for each operation, the VOC means lower machine-related costs and less floor space taken. Compared to manual venting and opening, the VOC also saves labor. Operations are carried out very hygienically, thereby preventing product contamination and maintaining product quality.
