Rapid breast deboner M4.0

Super-convenient speed and efficiency for chicken breast deboning

Designed to give you ultimate convenience and efficiency, Rapid is the Plug & Play version of Meyn’s widely installed automatic Rapid Plus breast deboner. As such, Rapid minimizes installation time and optimizes the footprint/capacity ratio, giving you low total cost of ownership and saving up to 19 full time employees per shift.

Based on the carousel principle, Rapid processes 4,000 front halves or breast caps per hour and is suitable for matured and non-matured poultry. Multiple operating options enable a wide range of end products, with excellent presentation for wings, fillets and tenderloins.

Crucially, Rapid’s preset touch buttons allow you to adjust critical settings effortlessly and instantly, for instance when product weights change.


Automatic Breast Deboning Process

The breast caps or front halves can be supplied in crates, cartons or straight from the cut-up line onto a conveyor belt. Two loading operators take the breasts and load them onto the product carrier, which slowly passes in front of them. Product carriers then take the breasts through a sequence of automated deboning steps.

  • A unique deskinning process removes the skin from the breast. This ensures that a high quality undamaged skin is harvested.
  • The wishbone is cut out of the breast very precisely, resulting in minimum bone contamination and low meat loss.
  • In the same carousel the fillet is scraped loose from the breast cage. The carousel can easily be adapted to perform optimally for matured products or not-matured products.
  • If required, an incising module splits the fillet into two halves.
  • A limited sequence of modules can be integrated to harvest half or whole fillets, with or without tenderloins attached. The configuration is determined by the end product requirements.
  • The keel bone rest meat modules are available to remove as much meat as possible from the keel bone to increase the value of this by-product.
