Trimming for Salmon and Sea Trout

Trimming for Salmon and Sea Trout


BAADER 988 Trimming


The BAADER 988 S is an advanced unique trimming machine for salmon and sea trout. It reduces the need for manual trimming drastically and combines a consistently high level of cutting quality of the end product with an advanced yield saving process.

It evaluates each fillet according to size, volume, colour grade and trim category. The BAADER 988 calculates the cutting patterns based on the evaluated parameters. The grade signal evaluated for each fillet can be used for sorting the fillets into different processes later on. Each fillet is cut or not cut according to this grade evaluation.

The BAADER 988 allows processors to “design” all kinds of trims along the belly side, the back side and the surface of the fillets. BAADER 988 can maximise your production value, yield, throughput and quality.
