Simplified Procedure ensures Usability

The BAADER 588 is a unique and user-friendly filleting machine for small and medium-sized whitefish – fresh or defrosted. The consistent running of fish through the machine guarantees a higher throughput. Centralized mechanical adjustments of cutting parameters allows for different species and precise cutting.

The BAADER 588 produces fillets of outstanding quality – even from soft fish.

It has been specifically designed to allow for easy and efficient cleaning and servicing. The BAADER 588 significantly reduces subsequent trim work downstream.
