Automatic rehanging machine

An effective and automatic solution to transfer birds from the evisceration line to the cooling line. During this phase, hocks are automatically cut. It is an ideal solution for highly automated plants.


This machine mechanically unshackles birds from the evisceration line and transfers them to intermediate units which convey birds to some other work stations which transfer them to the cooling line shackles. All above-mentioned operations are totally automatic: no operator is required. The speed synchronization of the two chains is carried out by means of a PLC which controls the machine-mounted sensors and precisely adjusts speeds.


  • Productivity up to 6,000 bph
  • No operators needed
  • Fit for any processing line
  • Optional weigh system
  • Control system by means of PLC and PC supervision system
  • Accurate check of chain speed
