Breast cutting-halving module NT

  • Unique cut
  • Cuts a whole breast spine-out (long rib) or split breast portions spine in or spine out (long rib)
  • Of interest to processors looking for higher breast portion yield where flank meat is allowed


Product enters the LR-NT breast cutter with its breast towards the module.

It is picked up by guides, which position it correctly. Rotating blades cut off the breast, from which two blades cut out a narrow section of spine. For half breast portions, a rotating blade cuts the breast into two pieces down the center of the keel-bone. For spine-in portions a single blade cuts down the center of the spine; for spine-out two blades cut either side of the spine.

By installing an extra breast guide it is possible to cut a medium rib breast cap.

If long rib breast cutting is not required, products can pass round the module via a by-pass guide.  Alternatively the module can be dropped out of line.

  • Made from stainless steel and synthetic materials
  • Manual or automatic height adjustment
