This completely automated robotic lamb processing plant in Bordertown, South Australia, is an incredible innovation.
Created by Scott Automation & Robotics in conjunction with JBS and Meat & Livestock Australia, the processing plant is a marvel. It aims to revolutionise butchery operations.
The machine uses x-ray to scan each lamb carcass as it comes down the conveyor. The x-ray identifies precisely where to make primal cuts - for example, between the fourth and fifth rib - and delivers these cuts for further processing. After the primal cuts, the middles are processed on a further machine, resulting in extraordinarily tidy racks of lamb.
