  • Manufacture: Robust design in AISI-316 stainless Steel, corrosion resistant materials, and food grade plastic.
  • Operators: Up to 3 persons.

Optional equipment:

  • Working platform: Adjustable height according to the installation needs.


  • Fish is manually fed into the machine and placed on the transport bucket, with the head towards the operator and the belly towards the cutting knife.
  • Following, the fish is carried by a conveyor belt in a controlled way to the rotating knife, where a straight and precise cut is performed, so the head is separated from the trunk.
  • The head-cutting is adjustable according to the species and size of the fish. An optimal yield is obtained by a precise cut guided by the own fish.
  • The next step is tail cutting, which is performed with high precision through a rotating knife. Tail cut is also adjustable according to the species and size of the fish.
  • After this, the fish trunk is transferred into the filleting system, which is fully integrated at the filleting section of the machine.
  • It is also possible to obtain eviscerated fish trunks (nobbing) with or without tail fin
  • The conveying and filleting system of the machine is designed for a throughput rate from 200 up to 250 fishes/min or higher, depending on the operator performance loading the fish into the machine at the feeding conveyor.
