Our automatic opener performs a clean, efficient cut without causing damage to the intestines. It is vital to make a precise cut as to not cut or puncture the intestines. The main task of the opener is to enlarge the opening in the vent made by the Vent Cutter, to allow easy access for the eviscerating units of the Eviscerator. After each production cycle the opening units are cleaned to reduce the risk of contamination. The length of the opening cut can be adjusted to process different types / sizes of birds.
