Fillet Grading, Packing and Inspection

Innovative set-up for smart and gentle handling of fish

Full Flexibility and Traceability

Fillets are the most valuable part of the fish and need to be handled with care during processing in order to optimize hygienic packaging.

The packaging area at the end of the processing line is one of the most labour-intensive areas in the entire production, increasing the risks to hygiene and product quality. The more operators handling the fillet, the higher the risk of damage or contamination. As attention to food hygiene by consumers is rising, the need for automation at this stage of processing is becoming more apparent.  

Therefore, BAADER designed a solution for smart and gentle handling of fillets at the end of the processing line: the BAADER 1850 Grading and Packaging System.

Reduced fillet handling and gentle transport into boxes ensure that the highest product quality and hygiene standards are maintained. In combination with the BAADER 1860 Fillet Inspector and the bag placing machine provided by their partner Niverplast, this solution allows for a complete automation of the packing process.

B’Logic® is our dedicated software solution for performance monitoring and yield control.
