Fast and safe operation

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.

PINTRO Skewer Machines enable you to mount products onto a skewer easily and hygienically, without sacrificing the artisanal appearance of the kebab, brochette or shashlik. PINTRO has a solution for smaller and mid-sized businesses as well as for industrial use. Meat, poultry, fish, vegetables, fruit, candy… PINTRO skewers it all.
The appliance’s principle is a globally patented idea from a butcher who made skewers on a large scale and who devoted his time searching for a more efficient solution to produce skewers, without sacrificing their artisanal nature. In 2007, he joined hands with SMO to continue developing the device into a market-ready product
