Until now, kingfish filleting has been a task along the fish processing line that has been done by hand that has cost processors a significant amount of money, resources and time. It is a physically demanding task that depends heavily on the expertise and alertness of operators. To address this, Marel has developed the Kingfish Filleting Machine MS 2730K that automates the process and facilitates a much more efficient production line.
A need for automation
Filleting large fish by hand increases the waste of valuable raw material and can slow a production line down. Automating the filleting process not only increases the yield, throughput and efficiency of production it also reduces labor costs, risks of human contamination and product damage. It is also a job that has become difficult to fill due to a labor shortage. The Kingfish Filleting Machine MS 2730K automates the labor-intensive task and efficiently processes a large volume in a short period of time to deliver high-quality fillets.
