Automated lamb frenching

Manual frenching of lamb racks requires skilled knife-work and consumes considerable labour resources. Current commercial frenching solutions (that require reduced labour) result in significant water (and noise) pollution, result in a loss of valuable intercostal meat and produce a waste stream of a lamb stew broth that then requires treatment.

In this project Scott Automation and Robotics have applied their automation know-how into developing an automated solution that uses a machine to automatically french lamb racks without the downsides of current water frenching solutions.
