Gutting and Inspection of Salmon, Sea Trout and Coho

Faster, cleaner and traceable

Signifiant Increase in Efficiency and Speed!

A perfect final fish product requires a perfect gutting. And what defines a perfect gutting is a clean and precise princess cut at a revolutionary speed. That is what the BAADER 144 Gutting and Inspection Solution does. Some call it a cash machine; others call it a workhorse as it is able to process up to 25 fish per minute.

The BAADER 144 Gutting Machine has a revolutionary design that pushes the boundaries of gutting speed, cleaning performance and working range, while also maximizing hygiene and inspection demands.

When combined with the BAADER 1570 Speed Feed System, the BAADER 144 is the world’s only high-speed gutting machine that can operate virtually without human intervention at an industrial level.

Individual fish handling and state-of-the-art motion control allows for a speed-optimized gutting result.

The integrated inspection camera system in conjunction with the respective software closely monitors and evaluates the gutting operation and detects any defects. The quality level is adjustable to the end customers’ demands.

B’Logic® Process Navigator air BAADER 144 is our dedicated software solution for performance monitoring and yield control.
