Mastering the Art of Filleting

We watched human hand filleting pros to see how finely and precisely they separate the fillet from the main bone by hand. Then the challenge was to do it as well - or better.

The BAADER 581 Pro is the latest innovation in the filleting section from BAADER. It represents probably the most powerful and advanced filleting machine in the world.  

These in-depth studies resulted in the development of the BAADER 581 Pro’s most innovative optional feature: the dynamic back knife module which offers outstanding possibilities for increasing the yield of the fillet.  

The optional belly trim tool integrates the main trimming effort into the filleting machine and compensates for further operators. It allows for different cutting patterns and is completely integrated into the recipe management system.

The new layout of the BAADER 581 Pro has a 20% smaller footprint compared to its predecessor by streamlining the housing. The recently designed housing also reduces processing noise for a quieter production atmosphere.

It features individual fish measurement, offering operational flexibility for a wide range of fish species and different kinds of conditions.
