Animal head processing apparatus

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #5533928.

The apparatus includes two stations in the processing of an animal head in a meat processing line. The first station is for templing where the station has a cup for receiving the jaw and a spindle to engage the skull. Both the spindle and cup are rotatable and are moved toward each other to engage an animal head on the work surface. The spindle and cup rise to raise the head above the work surface for templing both sides of the head without manually lifting the head. The next station holds the head in a jawbone up position. The head is retained by a cup holding the nose and a pin engaging the skull and pushing the nose into the cup. At this station, a power assisted chisel is provided to chisel the meat away from the skull. In addition, a bar engages the lower jaw and, when chiseling is complete, the bar is raised to separate the jaw. The jaw and remaining skull move further along the processing line for separation of the meat and further processing.
