  • Patented cutting mechanism, ensuring a consistent and exact cut independent of bird live weight

  • Non wearing cutting blades, always a clean cut, reduced maintenance and downtime

  • A very reliable performance due to the spring-loaded mechanism

  • Cut is positioned relative to keel bone, no uncovered breasts

  • Exact positioning of the bird in the machine resulting in reduced intestine damage

  • Large weight range can be processed within one machine setting

  • Separate adjustment for lower part of processing unit option

  • Rigid shackle model option

Meyn’s opening machine, with its patented scissors mechanism, can handle a wide weight range within one machine setting. This is partly due to the fact that the processing unit is uniquely positioned against the keel bone before cutting. This positively affects product quality as the breasts remain perfectly covered with skin. The typical design of the centering bracket results in a very limited number of damaged guts.


The spring-loaded cutting mechanism protects the scissors from overload damage. Combined with the knife design, this makes the scissors very reliable resulting in a highly uniform and consistent performance. Moreover, the scissors are virtually maintenance free, further reducing the TCO of this machine.
