The bird is, while hanging in the shackle with the back towards the machine , guided through the machine, whereby the guidance take care of a correct positioning of the shackle and the bird.
Once in the machine a so called “slide unit with bracket” grasps the bird and moves the bracket between the bird’s legs, where after the bracket is pushed, by a spring, onto the bird.
At the bottom of the unit a divided ball has been attached that also enters the opening, where after the pivotable part is moved to the outside by means of the curve. Since the front part of this ball has been equipped with a knife, the skin will be carved. With this linking movement the intestines are forced down by the divided ball. Mind that the ball will not be closed entirely so that the intestines are not severed, as a result of which cross contamination virtually does not occur. After each cycle the unit is sprayed with water.
