Operating a filleting machine

A filleting machine that doesn't deliver beautiful fillets is a pain in the but. Therefore, it is always an excellent investment to teach the operators since a skilled operator is just as important as maintenance. A trained operator will optimise your yield and prevent machine stops.

We have made a video for anyone curious about good tips for operating a filleting machine with saddles.

Here are some of the good points to keep in mind:
Centre the fish on the saddle
Swipe the fishtail gently so it falls into the groove.
Keep the thin flesh left and right of the saddle.
The tip of the saddle must hit the bottom of the abdominal cavity.
Skip a saddle instead of rushing.
