Hitting the right target

The Marel TargetBatcher has become renowned for its exceptional accuracy in fixed-weight batching.

With 7 high-accuracy individual scales and 14 holding bins, the TargetBatcher selects the best combination of products in a fraction of a second.

This compact, semi-automatic batcher is ideal for processing many small product series, where fast changeovers from one product to the next are crucial. It is suitable for small and large packages alike.


Tuna steaks, mackerel, haddock fillets or shell-on tiger prawns

Used by processors around the world for a variety of products, the TargetBatcher has operated for years producing everything from whole mackerel, haddock fillets and loins to tuna steaks, shell-on tiger prawns, hake slices, squid, cuttlefish and other products.

This accurate, small footprint batcher is available in two versions: one for fresh and frozen fish products; and one specifically for glazed products.

Marel has a reputation for providing advanced equipment, and after installing the TargetBatcher, we can see why. We are very satisfied with our batching solution., Didier Lequertier, Group Director, SAS Elabo’Pack, Lequertier Marée -

Drastically reduce giveaway

The TargetBatcher is the easy way to reduce giveaway, combining a pre-determined number of fresh or frozen products into a package of exact weight. Marel’s optional Innova Food Processing Software monitors real-time information from the TargetBatcher during processing, providing a complete overview of all aspects of the batching process and its results.

The TargetBatcher is accurate and effectively reduces giveaway. It’s a very stable and reliable piece of equipment that doesn’t need much maintenance and is easy to use – just like the other Marel equipment we have., Ricardo Figueiredo, Production Manager at Gelpeixe, Portugal -

Optimize the rework process

In most packing processes, rework of under- or overweight packs becomes necessary to avoid penalties and giveaways. Rework costs both labor and time, and the TargetBatcher is a uniquely efficient and compact solution to most rework problems.
