Title: SINEW REMOVAL DEVICE, PROCESSING DEVICE HAVING SUCH A SINEW REMOVAL DEVICE, AND METHOD FOR THE AUTOMATIC REMOVAL OF SINEWS AND/OR SINEW PORTIONS SITUATED ON INNER BREAST FILLETS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a sinew removal device (10) for the automatic removal of sinews and/or sinew portions situated on inner breast fillets of poultry bodies that have been skinned and have had the wings completely removed, wherein both the inner breast fillet lying directly on the carcass (11) and also the outer breast fillet covering the inner breast fillet lie in the natural position and the poultry bodies that have previously been transported, the shoulder joints (12) ahead, in a transport direction T along a transport route defining the transport plane E, wherein the downwardly directed breast bone (13) is oriented in the longitudinal direction of the transport direction T and parallel thereto. Said sinew removal device comprises a pair of removal means (14, 15) for removing the sinews and/or sinew portions from the inner breast fillet, wherein the two removal means (14, 15) are located on opposite sides of the transport route of the poultry bodies to be processed, characterised in that the removal means (14, 15) are formed as cutting blades (17, 18), wherein each cutting blade (17, 18) is designed and arranged to carry out at least two cutting movements in different directions of movement and the two cutting movements can be superimposed. The invention further relates to a processing device (16) having such a sinew removal device (10) and to a corresponding method.
