Marel has developed a new automatic deheading machine for salmon which aims to minimise manual handling and improves quality and yield.

The MS 2720 is still in its pre-release phase but was exhibited at the Marel Salmon ShowHow in Copenhagen in early February.

Capable of deheading up to 20 fish (2-10kg) per minute, the MS 2720 is equipped with six high-quality knives that achieve high yield and quality output from the various cutting processes.

Precision cutting of the head and tail maintains the quality of the fish and ultimately delivers a better fillet.

The new deheader is designed to achieve optimum yield from every fish by measuring each fish and adjusting the cutting tools accordingly, the tail is also cut off so that the salmon exits the machine ready for filleting.

An automatic transfer of the fish from the deheader to the filleting machine minimises manual handling and helps maintain the best possible product quality.

The machine is expected to be released for sale in the fourth quarter of 2017.
