Marel has developed a new salmon de-header the MS 2720 â€“ that minimizes
manual handling and improves quality and yield.
The new MS 2720 automatic deheading machine for salmon was exhibited at
the annual Marel Salmon ShowHow in Copenhagen on February 8, 2017. This
innovative system is still in its prerelease phase and Marel is working with key
salmon industry operators to finalize its development.
Optimum yield from every fish
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.
High precision cutting
Using the latest servo technology, the MS 2720 is capable of deheading up to
20 fish (2 to 10 kg) per minute. The MS 2720 is equipped with 6 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.
Automatic transfer to filleting
The MS 2720 improves both yield and quality with precision cutting and less
manual handling of the fillet. The deheader is designed to be fully integrated
with Marel™s filleting machine, the MS 2730. The automatic transfer of the fish
from the deheader to the filleting machine minimizes manual handling and helps
maintain the best possible product quality.
Released for sale later in 2017
Expected to be released for sale in Q4 2017, the new Marel salmon deheader is
designed to improve quality, yield, and throughput in this stage of salmon
