24 April 2024
Focus area: Carcase primal profitability optimisation
Program stream: Advanced manufacturing
Project number: 2022-1193
The aim of this project was to determine the feasibility of using a Scott scribing machine to French lamb racks to improve efficiencies and reduce variation in frenched rack length. 

As part of the research, trials with two blade variants and 60 rack saddle products were conducted. These trials demonstrated that rack scribing could be achieved while producing important learnings that will guide the development of a prototype scribe module.
