The MAXIMA 2.0 highlights the latest technology in breast meat deboning. This new Breast Cap Deboner is able to debone up to 3,000 breast caps per hour and produces single fillets. Final product is very well suited for tray-packing, requiring minimum trim as well as displaying perfect presentation. The machine offers a solution for deboning single fillets in an extremely simple and easy way, resulting in the highest possible yield and excellent product presentation. The Foodmate MAXIMA Breast Cap Deboning provides maximum performance, maximum simplicity and maximum flexibility, while requiring minimum floor space, as well as minimum maintenance and operating costs.

Capitalizing on its flexibility, the MAXIMA 2.0 can easily adjust to multiple plants’ set up and configurations requirements. The standard configuration includes a breast deboning unit for single breast fillets, a carcass unloader and an inline deskinning unit. In addition, the machine can be equipped with multiple conveyor belts, as it was designed to accommodate any conveyor belt direction variation.

New equipment is the automatic wishbone remover. The wishbone remover (AWR) automatically harvests the entire wishbone with minimum weight loss. The unit is extremely easy to adjust and maintain.


Working method:

  1. Two operators loads the special designed cone manually with breast caps.
  2. When the breast cap is placed on the cone, a special device automatically locks the breast cap

    on to the cone.

  1. This is to ensure a stable position of the breast cap and to avoid the breast cap being

    discharged before deboning.

  1. After locking, the cone turns automatically into position for deskinning.
  2. The breast cap deskinning starts from the tip towards the neck.
  3. After deskinning the cones turns automatically back into position for deboning.
  4. When entering the deboning unit, the breast caps will be automatically deboned. This process

    is fully mechanical.

  1. After deboning the single fillets are automatically discharged.
  2. The remaining carcass will be automatically discharged by a static unloader.
  3. The empty cone turns into the 1st loading position.

OPTI LTD | Exceptional Yields and Flexibility


Whole Leg Deboning and Flexible Dark Meat Deboning Solutions

In the past whole leg, thigh and drumstick deboning, was a labor intensive and inefficient process. It either required a lot of skilled labor or the automation that was available was slow, capital intensive and had a high cost of ownership and low yields due to rework.

Since the market for deboned dark meat is growing fast, there also is a need to be flexible to supply various segments of the market with different boneless dark meat products. To do so, requires flexible automation that does not require change over time or parts. Therefore, Foodmate decided to develop a flexible system that can be used to debone all variations of dark meat such as whole leg meat, thigh meat and drumstick meat.


Foodmate OPTI LTD Dark Meat Deboning System

Foodmate’s new OPTI LTD Dark Meat Deboning System is a flexible, total dark meat deboning solution that produces high-yield, superior quality meat efficiently and cost effectively.

Capable of deboning 100 skinless or skin-on anatomical whole legs, thighs and drumsticks per minute, this system is so flexible that no additional parts or changes are required when switching between the various dark meat products.
