Delivery of the Newly Developed G142 Fish Splitting Machine

Goldmann Engineering continues to make significant investments in research and development and is excited to have delivered to our customer the new G142 stainless steel splitting machine.


The first model of splitting machine was the G140 which was constructed of galvanised steel – numerous models are still working in South Africa and Namibia. The G141 was a major further development due to it’s
stainless steel construction and significant improvements in hygiene and safety with models exported to Angola. The G142 has improved the fish guidance and allows for width adjustment of the infeed.

Brussels Seafood Show

Goldmann Engineering again joined Baader on their large and much visited stand at the Brussel Seafood Exhibition this April 2015.

Live demonstrations were held showing the new and advanced Baader 588 for filleting of Cod and Alaska Pollock (pictured here in the foreground).  The B588 conforms to the latest stringent European hygiene and safety standards featuring water cooled motors, open design, numerous unit opening actions for easy cleaning, and a secure fence around the cutting area.

Also on exhibition was the Baader 59 skinning machine and Baader’s production software.

Based on the success of the 2015 show, we look forward to seeing you at the next Brussel Seafood show: 26-28 April 2016!

Export of a Baader 200 to the Middle East

Goldmann Engineering and Baader Germany celebrate the sale of a specially adapted and refurbished Baader 200 to the Middle East.  The original design of the Baader 200 is for the filleting of salmon and trout, but by redesigning key parts of the machine, the Baader 200 delivered to the Middle East can now fillet Baramundi (Asian Sea Bass) of sizes ranging between 0.5 kg and 2.5 kg.

It is also possible to process similar species by making further adjustments to the machine.

The Baader 200 processes fish that has already been headed and gutted at a throughput rate of up to 30 fish per minute.  The cutting tools automatically adjust the cut according to the thickness of the fish ensuring a high yield.

This project was made possible by the unique close collaboration between Goldmann Engineering (located in Cape Town, South Africa) and Baader (Germany) – a collaboration that has already produced exports to numerous countries including China.
