De-head Machine AD-1000


The AD-1000 automatic de-header is extremely efficient and contributes to a reduction of the operating costs.

  • The yield will be optimized compared to manual de-heading.
  • A lighter work load will be obtained.
  • The cut of the fish is clean and neat.
  • The machine can easily be installed into an existing flow line before a gutting line, a filleting line or a freezing line.
  • Due to the design of the machine, the operating safety will be enhanced.


The operator places the salmon on a spear in a fish cup, in order for the fish to be correctly in-fed into the cutting section.
Using continues belt advancing the fish will be steady during the transport to the cutting section.
The cutting section is pneumatic with a V-cut. The machine de-heads the fish with collarbone ("Japanese cut").
After de-heading the carcasses and heads will automatically be separated.
The heads can be transported to a waste conveyor and the carcasses can automatically be in-fed to the gutting line for further processing.
The AD-1000 has continuous belt washing during processing. It is constructed in strong stainless steel and FDA approved materials, and the security is in accordance with current regulations.
The machine is equipped with an electronic speed control for regulation of the belt speed.
