The RSN 7200 Roll Stock Netter from Poly-clip helps to eliminate netting waste. Processing hams with continuous netting can save up to 12 inches of netting per ham by eliminating the long netting tail created from the manual stuffing process. The machine automates the ham-netting process by stuffing an injected, whole bone-in ham through an expanding stuffing horn and into a restrictive net supplied from a continuous source.
