BAADER fillet grader

BAADER whole fish grader: packing into tubs and/or boxes for small to medium-sized products

Customer benefits:

  • High weighing accuracy
  • Easy cleaning due to a straightforward and open construction, easy belt release and tiltable chutes
  • High capacity as a result of a configurable weigh deck and smooth product transfer
  • Connects to the BAADER intelligent production software

Our modular whole fish grading systems distribute the fish according to the following pre-defined criteria. Jobs are easily configured for:

  • Sizing
  • Minimum weight
  • Target batching
  • Mixed batching
  • Controlled flow

The fish is received on an infeed conveyor that stabilises the product and sends it to an acceleration conveyor to ensure correct spacing before weighing. Once weighed on the dynamic scale, the products are distributed to the following:

  • Tubs
  • Packing chutes / presentation trays
  • Combined tubs and packing chutes / presentation trays

The grader can be equipped with single or double-sided drop-off arms, according to customer design needs.

BAADER hopper scales

Customer benefits:

  • Simple, robust stainless-steel construction
  • High level of stability in weighing cycle
  • High overload protection
  • Low maintenance
  • Highly reliable functionality
  • High-speed weighing
  • Hygienic design
  • Gentle handling of the product

BAADER hopper scales are specially designed to meet the requirements of the fish industry in terms of throughput, reliability, hygiene and accuracy. A common application of hopper scales is weighing of a continuous flow of products into batches for further packing or processing. On the other hand, weighing of by-products (heads, frames and skin) is carried out in order to monitor the yield and performance of your processing line.

We offer four different standard hopper models:

  • Hopper for whole fish
  • Hopper for head and body
  • Hopper for fish heads
  • Hopper for sticky products

The volume of all hopper scales is designed to meet the required customer / processing needs.

BAADER fillet grader: weighing, packing and labelling

Customer benefits:

  • Product flow control
  • Easy adjustment when product characteristics change
  • Easy access to products when packing
  • Robust construction for longevity
  • Option: alternate between head and tail orientation into skinning machine
  • Sensor for quality grading
  • Open hygienic design: easy to clean

This twin grading system receives the fillets on infeed conveyors, which space the product and send it to the weighing units. Once weighed on the dynamic scale, the products are distributed to drop-off stations and packing chutes situated on the right side of the grader. As an option, the fillets can also be turned and distributed to a cross-conveyor for skinning or other purposes.

The sorting is completed according to pre-defined sorting criteria:

  • Sizing
  • Minimum weight
  • Target batching
  • Mixed batching
  • Controlled flow
  • Quality
  • Option: skinning

BAADER static scale: for legal weighing

Customer benefits:

  • Intuitive and easy to operate with a graphical user interface based on pictures: minimised text for fast operator training and use
  • Robust and reliable with built-in overload protection
  • Low maintenance: simple construction and few components
  • High resistance to environmental influences
  • An economic and efficient solution for product labelling
  • Configurable user interface and multiple packing modes, including palletising without programming
  • Fast printing speed of labels and easy label management via B’Logic® label composer for designing and handle labels

This static scale is made for box weighing. The roller top makes it easy to maneuver the boxes on the weighing unit. The static scale can be used as a packing station placed at the end of a grading line where it is possible to pack and register boxes to specific orders. Weighing results from the scale are approved weights and can be used for commercial purposes. The user-friendly interface makes it easy to keep track of order status, stock status and history data. Professional label software enables you to print important product information, such as product description, supplier identification, customer name, net weight and packing date.
