Scanvaegt Systems A/S and Borncut A/S in new strong alliance
Scanvaegt Systems A/S and Borncut A/S have formed a strong alliance to develop, sell
and service portion cutters for the global food industry. Portion cutters ensure
accurate cutting of fish, poultry and meat, giving customers a greater profit. The
first machines are already in production.
The founders of Borncut developed the world’s first portion cutter when working for
Norfo back in 1992. That’s when a partnership with the Scanvaegt Group also began.
The partnership led to Scanvaegt acquiring Norfo. In 2006, the Scanvaegt Group was
sold and collaboration with the new owners ended a few years later.
New partnership rooted in the past
The former alliance has now resumed, and the shared past make Scanvaegt Systems and
Borncut the two most knowledgeable companies in the world about portion cutters.
The new machines were developed in close collaboration and tested by one of Scanvaegt
System’s key customers. Gorm Holger Sørensen, Managing director and head of the development
in Borncut says: “Being part of such a committed team in both Borncut and Scanvaegt
Systems is quite unique. We have chosen the best and latest technology and we can
already release a portion cutter that meets both our own and our customers’ stringent
Major benefits for customers
Ole Schou Mortensen, Chairman of the Board in Borncut, says: “The new range of portion
cutters is based on the latest technology in portion cutter control and design. The
machines are particularly easy to operate – the 3D screen technology visualizes the
cutting and makes it even more accurate. This optimises the cutting, increases the
product yield and thus the customer’s profits. Meanwhile, the ‘drag and drop' technology
makes the machine more intuitive and flexible to use. Cleaning and maintenance is
also easier with the new design, and ensures a high level of hygiene and reduced
working hours. We have high expectations of the new product line.”
Future promises major growth
Scanvaegt Systems and Borncut anticipate major growth in portion cutter sales. Vice
Executive President in Scanvaegt Systems, Jan Deding says: “We have long wanted to
be able to offer our customers this product line, and we have a strategy and customer
portfolio to match it. That’s why this solution is optimal for both Borncut and us,
and we look forward to offering our customers the best solution on the market.”
