|20160106113||A SYSTEM FOR PROCESSING CARCASS PARTS - A system for processing carcass parts includes an overhead conveyor and a saw module comprising supporting means for interacting with a lower end portion of each incoming carcass part, the supporting means adjusting an angular position of the carcass parts as a result of the carcass parts resting at least partly on the supporting means while being conveyed by the overhead conveyor. A positioning conveyor having a plurality of spaced-apart positioning pair structures arranged below the overhead conveyor and adjacent to the supporting means receives the carcass parts from the supporting means. Each carcass part is guided into a predetermined position within the positioning pair structures and cut at a predetermined position, e.g. defined by a 360° cut through skin and muscle structures of each of the carcass parts.||04-21-2016|
|20150056902||PARTIAL CRIMPING DEVICE AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME - A crimping device having a pair of crimping posts operatively connected to a frame such that the posts may rotate to a generally vertical position where the posts are in spaced parallel relation to one another. In the vertical position the posts pinch a rope of food product such that emulsion is pushed away from the posts without cutting the casing. The result of the pinching are partially crimped segments that do not close all the way.||02-26-2015|
|20140331870||Peeling System And Peeling Machine For Peeling A Strand Of Food Product - A peeling system and device that eliminates the need for a steam tube and/or air blasts by moving the position of a cutter blade or the use of a pincher wheel.||11-13-2014|
|20140014474||SHOULDER POSITIONING CONVEYOR - A conveyor for positioning a meat product to be cut having a track attached to a frame, a chain slidably mounted on the track, a plurality of flights connected to the chain and a guide bar connected to the frame wherein the conveyor advances product forward at a loading end, maintains the product in a stable position through a transport section, and releases the product at a discharge end such that the product drops off the guide bar.||01-16-2014|
|20130277174||CONVEYING SYSTEM FOR MOVING FOOD PRODUCTS AND METHOD OF USING THE SAME - A conveying system that corrects spacing inconsistencies between food products on transport conveyors. Sensor elements are used to determine the position of food products on a first conveyor. Displacement members then move the food products to a slower second conveyor and different locations to correct the position between the food products.||10-24-2013|
|20130017770||STUFFING TUBE MOUNTING ASSEMBLY AND FOLLOWERAANM DeVries; KevinAACI MonroeAAST IAAACO USAAGP DeVries; Kevin Monroe IA USAANM Arnote, JR.; Kenneth B.AACI AlbionAAST IAAACO USAAGP Arnote, JR.; Kenneth B. Albion IA USAANM Weers; Timothy V.AACI UrbandaleAAST IAAACO USAAGP Weers; Timothy V. Urbandale IA US - A stuffing tube mounting assembly and follower includes an elongated member with a tapered portion at one end that fits within a tapered end of a stuffing horn. The stuffing horn is inserted through a bore of a collar. The bore of the collar has a tapered section that engages the tapered end of the horn when the collar is attached to the member. The follower has a housing having a bore. An opening in a sidewall of the housing is in communication with the bore. Disposed within the bore is a wiper. A cap having a central opening in an end wall is attached to the housing.||01-17-2013|
