RM1200 rehanger

The RM1200 series rehangers provides a complete set of process management possibilities, including combined weigher/rehanger with an accuracy guaranteed to hold a standard deviation of less than 0.4%. The multifunctional RM1200 is modular, with three independently functioning modules housed together in a stainless steel frame. The modularity allows the Meyn rehanger to be integrated seamlessly into an existing production process. Moreover, the infeed and outfeed sections can be tailored to specific requirements. Regardless of shackle pitch, leg distance, bird weight and line speed of the infeed and outfeed lines, the RM1200 rehanger will transfer the birds smoothly and effectively.

RM1200 rehanger slaughtering to evisceration

The carcasses are hanging at the feet in the slaughter shackle. In the first shaft the carcasses are cut from the shackle, cutting differences can be seen on the previous page.

The second shaft (pall wheel) transfers the carcass from the cutting wheel to the carousel table. The carousel table is a large disc transporting the carriers. At the transfer point the speed of the carts is adapted to the connecting line and and shackle width. This principle makes it possible to re hang to different line speeds and shackle widths.

While the carcass is in the cart on the carousel it can be weighed.

From the carier the carcass is transferred to a pall wheel for transferring it to the evisceration shackle in the right position. In case of ROPS the carcass can be hung into the shackle straight from the carier because the position in the shackle is backwards.

RM1200 rehanger evisceration to chilling

The carcasses are hanging at the drum in the evisceration shackle and the evisceration line enters the machine from the side. In the first shaft the carcasses are lifted out of the shackles by the lifting unit (picture above).

The lifting unit presents and transfers the carcass into the carrier on the carousel table. The carousel table is a large disc transporting the carriers. At the transfer point the speed of the carriers is adapted to the connecting line and and shackle width. This principle makes it possible to re hang to different line speeds and shackle widths.

While the carcass is in the carrier on the carousel it can also be weighed. From the carrier the carcass is transferred to the chill shackles.
