Valka Innovating Pin-Bone and Portion Cutting with Water Jets

Share Article

The Valka Cutter uses a combination of X-Ray and 3D image processing with water jets for pin-bone and portion cutting, enabling fish processors to deliver a superior product due to reduced handling and cutting on a single machine.

By using state-of-the-art technology, Valka’s Cutter system ensures boneless products by detecting bones as small as 0.2mm and increases yield by minimising the bone off-cut while elevating the value of the products by maximising the size of the loins.

As the leading machine available for filet processing, the Valka Cutter allows fish processors to improve yield and throughput while reducing labour. “Boosting productivity, expanding yield and maximising accuracy for fish processors has always been at the forefront of what we do,” says Valka marketing manager, Águst Sigurðarson. Suitable for several species of fish, the pin-bone and portion cutting machine is incredibly flexible and highly efficient in accurately portioning fillets of any size.

With the capability of analysing each fillet and cutting uniform portions in relation to size, weight and thickness according to the desired specification, multiple cutting patterns or programs can be defined, and the size of fillets can be cut into different patterns. And with a variety of cutting and detecting options, fish processors can customise a system according to their needs. To learn more about the Valka Cutter, visit their website at
