An updated model of a gristle removal machine, uses new technology
that results in a more gentle treatment of the meat, and a high
quality of product, its manufacturer claims.

Germany-based Nordischer Maschinenbau Rud. Baader said its 604 model uses technology developed for the clean separation of sinew and gristle from chopped meat.

This leads to noticeable improvements in product quality without compromising product quality in other respects, the company claims

The Baader 604 is designed to comply with the atest hygiene and safety standards and can handle up to 2,000 kilograms of pork per hour, the company stated.

The 604 uses the concept of an active pinch band support that the company has used for a year and a half in its previous models.

In the 604, the downtimes of the pinch band have been doubled, and the significant reduction of the mechanical pressure results in gentler handling of the product and less wear and tear on the machine itself, the company claimed in a press release.

"The new design of the machine results in far fewer loose parts, a factor that makes operation and cleaning as simple as possible,"​ the company stated.

An optional interface makes it possible to exchange data between an external computer and the gristle removal machine. The interface allows workers to transfer the production data that are relevant for traceability, sales, quality control and service.

Online access to production information, temperatures, service data and production programmes is also available to managers through the interface.
