Automated evisceration of pig carcasses using sensors and robot systems

The basis for the development of a liable and industrially feasible automatic evisceration system for pig slaughter lines has been established. The Danish Meat Research Institute has developed the skill and extended the knowledge of modern slaughter techniques. A demonstration model has been built that performs the individual processes of evisceration, meeting the major part of the objectives and specifications requested. Industrial exploitation is now feasible, technical and economically enabling a total automation of the slaughtering.
