First Feasibility of Shoulder De-Boning
The meat industry has a major requirement to automate its processes of slaughtering and meat preparation including primal cutting, sub-primal breakup and de-boning.
This project was proposed in 2016 to carry out a feasibility of de-boning lamb shoulder primal pieces, following discussions and the declared need by several Australia meat processors. In particular, the separation of the rib cage was to be evaluated and a solution for implementation as a prototype intended. The original approach considered similar steps to that applied by BMC (Koorosh Khodabandehloo) for the ATTEC Shoulder cutting to produce bone-in square cut pieces.
