Produce a Variety of Wing Products

Wing segmenting

Flexible Poultry Processing to Meet Varying Market Demands

Our bypassing capabilities on the ProFlex Cut-up Line allow processors  to produce different wing products: whole wing, drummette, middle wing (mid joint), middle wing with tip and wing tip. Careful product positioning and accurate cutting protects yield by leaving every gram of meat where it belongs. Breast meat stays on the fillet if desired while back meat can be harvested together with the wing product to add value.

Keep Processing Automatic and In-line to Reduce Labour

High-speed processing advocates automation to avoid labour dependency. By keeping the complete cut-up process automatic and in-line, the processor avoids manual and unhygienic product handling. However, automation must not be at the expense of production flexibility, yield or quality. For this reason, BAADER has developed a unique wing cutting system integrated into the cut-up line: whole wing cutter, mid-wing cutter and wing tip cutter. The uniform, anatomical cuts safeguard quality and ensure the best price for your wing products.

Anatomical Wing Cuts

Consumers prefer perfect cuts without loose or sharp bone particles at the joints, and this requires a pure, anatomical cut. Our Wing Tip Cutter 4142 and Mid Wing Cutter 4146 position and cut each wing separately to optimize the cutting performance and obtain an A-grade anatomical cut. By first cutting one wing and then the other, the machines are flexible to process varying bird sizes.

Wing Cutting Modules

Wing segmenting

Wing Tip Cutter 4142

When birds enter the module, guide bars perfectly position each wing. Stainless steel pushers disjoint the wing tip from the mid-wing. Left and right wing tips are processed independently to achieve optimal disjointing for subsequent tendon cutting with a stationary blade. The module is not dependent on both wings being intact; if birds have a wing missing it does not affect the processing of the other wing.

Mid Wing Cutter 4146

The Mid Wing Cutter 4146 operates identically to the Wing Tip Cutter 4142. Both units follow the same patented principle and share many common components.Left and right wing tips are processed independently to achieve optimal disjointing for subsequent tendon cutting with a stationary blade. The module is not dependent on both wings being intact; if birds have a wing missing it does not affect the processing of the other wing.

Whole Wing Cutter 4148

The Whole Wing Cutter 4148 processes both wings at the same time. Guide bars position the wings away from the cavity before the motor-driven rotating blades. The blades can be configured to include more or less back meat on the wings.
