Configurable to Fit Any Process

The Tunnel Picker 284 is available in various configurations to meet specific picking requirements. Different picking bank lengths and number of rows allow us to design the picking line that best fits your requirements.

Adjust to Obtain the Best Quality

Adjustability is a key factor in effective picking. Multiple adjustment features on the Tunnel Picker 284 ensure the best possible picking performance while protecting the product quality. Each picking row can be individually angled and picking banks can be height and separation adjusted so picking fingers follow the shape of the bird. The configuration of various picking machines on the line allows the picking to be targeted differently from machine to machine as picking progresses. This high degree of targeted picking also allows for dry picking.

Durable Rubber Fingers

In addition to a highly efficient picking machine, it also requires high-quality rubber fingers to maximize the picking performance. The wavy ridges on the Rubber FingerWAVE ensure multidirectional feather contact during picking and effectively remove feathers. As the birds are conveyed through the rotating rubber fingers, water sprays flush away the feathers.
