Whitefish Filleting, Gutting, and Heading Machine
2 persons load the fish on a belt. In way of the infeed to the heading unit, the size of the fish is electronically determined, and the processing tools moved by stepping motors are individually controlled for each fish via the host computer. According to its size, the fish is first brought into the optimum position for heading. Heading is performed through a V-Cut which saves as much meat as possible and is, beyond this, advantageous for the possible subsequent roe extraction since the guts remain intact. Subsequently, the fish are filleted over the total length without previous tail cut. The controlled heading in form of the V-Cut and the filleting without tail cut result in a maximum fillet yield. However, the standard design of the BAADER 212 includes a safety tail cutter which reduces any fish of excessive length to the size required for the troublefree filleting process.
The heading section of the BAADER 212 is equipped with units and devices for the roe extraction. It is also possible to put the roe extraction unit out of operation. The ulterior installation can be made as well. Being electronically controlled, the roe extraction unit is operated from the standard control panel of the machine. Thanks to the very gentle treatment, the roe membrane remains as far as possible intact. Guts and roe are discharged from the machine for the subsequent manual selection.
The BAADER 212 HR (Heading and Roe recovery) is as a standalone version available.
