Bakon - Tuna loins ultrasound cutting

Country: 
Worldwide
Summary: 

In the canning industry, and especially in the process to manufacture/cut pieces of tuna loins canned in crystal bottles, the productivity can be improved by increasing the yield (by reducing waste in the cutting operation) and the quality of the cut section (less crumble formation). The benefit associated to the implementation of this solution is the improvement of production:

- this process could increase yields
- less crumb formation
- reducing waste
- improve the quality of the cut
- increase in the production rate
- less efforts to recover or value these as well as to treat or clean the production line.

The technological solution proposed is a process to cut tuna loins by using ultrasound technology.
The procedure consists of three principal steps; 1.loin positioning in the conveyor belt, 2. First cut in the longitudinal direction, 3. Different cuts in the transversal section, the number of cuts in this section is related to the thickness of the loin and normally could be between 2 (for small loins) and 5-6 (for bigger ones).
