Trimming and beveling bellies with minimized product handling

The Robotic belly trimmer (RBT) is the newest addition to the Frontmatec waterjet cutting lineup. The RBT combines robo­tics and innovative tooling with the ABT strength such as Value Grading®, giving now the added ability to bevel the teat and back sides of the bellies. This is achieved in a single pass without flip­ping the product by using a patent-pending double jet cutter that simultaneously creates vertical and angled cuts.

The RBT technology benefits from the experience gained with the Frontmatec ABT’s that have reached the milestone of trim­ming more than 1 billion bellies over the past 15 years. Use the RBT with other Frontmatec equipment, such as the Automatic middle saw, Automatic rib puller, and the Automatic loin puller for complete belly line optimization.
