Smart Strip Saw

Utilizing the Smart Rib Saw technology Midwest Machine has developed the Automated Smart Strip Saw. Using a system of 3D scanners and a proprietary algorithm, developed by Midwest Machine automation experts specifically for this application, this saw automatically removes the Chine bone (or spine) from the striploin cut of beef.  After the meat is loaded into the conveyor cradles it passes through the scanning system, the Smart Strip Saw’s cameras scan the whole striploin, develop a 3D image in the programmable logic controller, and calculate the cut path.  Then, tracking the position of the spinal cord, the controller moves the band saw to provide the most optimal cut, removing the Chine bone and maximizing yield.  Since the operator only has to load the conveyor, they are safely located far away from the blades.  Recommended rate is 7 pieces per minute per machine (based on operator ergonomics), fully loaded capacity is 14 pieces per minute.  Automate your processes and increase yields with the Midwest Machine Patented Smart Strip Saw!
