Gutting of Salmon, Sea Trout and Coho

Perfect Gutting Results Since Almost 30 Years

Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine production without automated slaughtering machines. BAADER 142 is a must have for this process.

The fish can be loaded manually or in combination with a Semi-Auto Feeding System for up to 8 lines with 4 operators.

The BAADER 142 makes a very precise princess cut. This is accomplished by computerized length and shape measurements in addition to state-of-the-art cleaning, rinsing and suctioning operations.

Even at high throughput rates, there is complete and accurate removal of entrails and blood.

Have you ever thought about processing farmed cod?

Today, farmed cod is on its way to becoming an integral part of the aquaculture sector, alongside salmon and other species.

That leads us to design a conversion kit for our existing BAADER 142 to perform a perfect belly cut on farmed cod as well – without damaging the guts.
