Behold The Gutmaster 8000! This a machine designed to eviscerate, decapitate and clean salmon. So, just how effective is this slice and dice contraption? It can fully process a salmon in less then two seconds, averaging out at about 30 salmon a min.
The salmon get fed into a conveyor system where various blades make the necessary incisions. From there, suction is applied and the guts are removed. A series of brushes then clean the interior cavity and remove any left over bits. Finally, the fish is decapitated and exits the machine ready for packaging or further processing.
On top of the obvious time and labour saving advantages of the Gutmaster 8000, Kroma, the Danish manufacturer, claims that the process protects workers from potentially harmful fish aerosals released during the cleaning process.
The video of the Gutmaster 8000 in action can be seen here complete with soothing flute soundtrack.
I am assuming that the machine can be washed and sanitized because in the video, from begining to end, there are flecks of flesh and fishy shrapnel all over the machine. One can only assume that at the end of a predetermined safe period of usage the whole machine can be cleaned down.
ps. Theres a reason why it looks familiar. Thanks to Gizmodo for this one.
