The VMK16M60 Nobbing machine with Steak Cutter accurately and efficiently removes the head and tail of the fish, then evacuates the viscera using a hygenic vaccum system, M63, synchronized to the travel of the fish for increased suction time.

Stainless steel fish pockets carry the fish to precision measuring device that customize the position of the head cut and tail cut for each individual fish, achieving high yield. The VMK16M60 Nobbing machine can either be manually fed utilizing two or three operators, or automatically fed by the VMK31 Automatic feeder to achieve production rates of up to 300 fish per minute.

The M60 unit, cuts the fish to predetermined pieces. Suitable for canned products.
