Automated Boning Room

Scott Automated Boning Room Systems were designed to optimise yield, minimise waste, increase food safety and reduce operational costs. The automated boning room is a fully automated system for processing “bone-in” meat products and is able to process carcasses at a rate of 12 per minute.

The automated boning room system consists of six individual machines which are seamlessly integrated to transfer product from one machine to another. Scott boning room systems begin with X-Ray Grading before processing, the carcass is then separated into the three primal sections by the X-Ray Primal system, these are then passed to the forequarter, middle and hindquarter systems for further processing finally a knuckle tipper system removes the knuckle tip from the hind leg.

X-Ray Primal System

The X-Ray Primal System automates the cutting of lamb primals, delivering highly accurate, clean primal cuts superior to anything produced by a human operator.

Middle System

The Scott Middle System is comprised of several stations that can be configured according to the customer's requirements.

Forequarter System 1440x880

Forequarter System

The forequarter system uses a 3D vision camera to scan each forequarter, creating a virtual model and the optimal cut locations which guide a robotic arm that grasps the forequarter and uses a bandsaw to make the cuts.

Safety and yield benefits from automation project at ANZCO’s Rangitikei plant

Scott installed an automated lamb boning room into ANZCO Foods Rangitikei plant. The $10m automated cutting equipment project was completed on time with the site now in full production.

The increased yield comes from improved accuracy, which will have a positive financial impact... For instance, achieving an extra 5mm on French racks, compared to it being on the flap, is substantial.
