Safety and yield benefits from automation project at ANZCO’s Rangitikei plant
Earlier this year, Scott installed an automated lamb boning room into ANZCO Foods Rangitikei plant. The $10m automated cutting equipment project was completed on time with the site now in full production.
The investment features an x-ray machine working in unison with automated cutting equipment, providing highly accurate cuts and reducing health and safety risks. The automated cutting equipment replaces five bandsaws and removes the four-quarter and leg, and debones the full middle ensuring precise cutting to the exact specifications of each carcass.
