Deboning and trimming based on conveyor belt pace

  • Belt speed determines pace of work line
  • Specific and simple operations
  • Conveyor belt used for transport and work surface


The principle of PaceLine deboning is based on a conveyor belt transporting carcass portions through the cutting room.

The conveyor belt not only transport product, it also serves as the deboner’s work surface.

The speed of the belt determines the pace of the work on the line.
Each employee in the PaceLine has a specific task in the deboning process, which must be completed within the timeframe of that piece of meat passing by.

Pace deboning is an application that makes it possible to achieve efficient, uniform deboning with ‘less’ qualified personnel. The individual operations are specific and simple and therefore easy to learn.

The deboned meat is fed into crates or onto a conveyor belt and transported for storage, packing or further processing.
