The PINTRO® P3000 is the newest addition among the semi-automatic skewer machines. It is ideal for seasonal major industrial production quantities of up to 24,000 skewers per shift. The central theme is the traditional appearance of the skewer; constant quality, ergonomics and productivity.

If your skewer production continues throughout the year (and is not just seasonal), then you should certainly take a look at our Pick & Skewer systems.


The PINTRO P3000 has a maximum capacity of up to 3,000 skewers or kebabs per hour.

The effective capacity is determined by the number of ingredients and the complexity of the skewer. The maximum capacity can be achieved when creating simple skewers with few components.

Do you want to know how many skewers you can make per hour using the PINTRO P3000? Send us an e-mail with the details of your desired skewer. This allows us to make an estimate of the production capacity possible for you.


You can use different lengths of round sticks in the machine, from 100 mm to 300 mm. Meat, poultry, fish, bell peppers, onions, bacon, pineapple, dried fruit etc. You name it, the P3000 skewers the lot.

The machine effortlessly makes brochettes of from 1 to 16 components per stick.


In developing this machine, we took account of the highest possible capacity, an ergonomic, pleasant and safe working method for the operators, simple conversion for making other skewers and, of course, the traditional final result of the skewer.

Two master stations are occupied by on the one hand the machine’s operator and on the other hand a team that fills the moulds with ingredients.

One operator removes the formed skwers from the installation and performs a visual final inspection. A number of ‘fillers’ supply the moulds with the ingredients. The number of fillers depends on the quantity and diversity of the different components of the skewer. The installation has room for a maximum of ten fillers.

We have provided convenient filling towers so that the fillers only need to make as few movements as possible with plenty of autonomy.

The HMI display and its menu provide simple controls for e.g. making another type of skewer; it includes instructions and other relevant information such as the productivity.

Final result

The patented principle results in a traditional skewer, each time again:

  • The unique system ensures that the pieces of meat and vegetable are always positioned centrally on the stick
  • This means that the vegetables and stick are kept free of any marinades and so retain their fresh appearance
  • Irrespective of the operator, this guarantees constant quality and uniform skewers
