BAADER introduces new pin-bone remover, skinning machine
Luebeck, Germany-based processing equipment firm BAADER has introduced three new fish processing machines, including a pin-bone remover and a salmon skinning machine.
The new hand-held BAADER 75 is designed for “very gentle” pin-bone removal – important in order to maintain product quality, the company said in a press release.
The company has also released a new BAADER 240 skinning machine designed for salmon and available in both single- and twin-lane versions. The machine can be used on both fresh and smoked salmon, and is customizable to allow for deep skinning, shallow skinning, and maximum shallow skinning.
BAADER has also rolled out a new filleting machine for fresh and defrosted whitefish, using circular knives for “more gentle processing.” The BAADER 588 is able to run up to 36 fish per minute, depending on the species, the company said.
“The fillet quality is extraordinary – even on soft fish (e.g. haddock, hake). The surface is very smooth, no gaping or bloodspots occur,” BAADER said. “This is a result of very little stress on the fillet because no stickle and scraper knives are used and due to the rotating flank knives.”
In the same announcement, BAADER said it will be rereleasing the BAADER 136, a trout-deboning machine that can process gutted or ungutted trout at a rate of up to 50 fish per minute. The new model has been redesigned to make it easier to clean.
