After vent cutting, the Opener performs a perfect opening cut of the abdominal skin from the vent opening to the tip of the breastbone, hereby creating the opening for the subsequent evisceration machine.
Special hip huggers help to position each bird and ensure a high-precision cut of the abdominal skin. This accuracy significantly reduces the risk of injuries to intestines during the opening process or opening the skin too much, thus leaving the breast meat uncovered.
The Opener is easy to adjust during production. This is accomplished by four hand-operated hydraulic jacks that allow precise positioning of the main shaft height, the height of the hip huggers, the blade depth and the cutting length.
