ShrimpWorks® is a first-of-its-kind system that is truly all-in-one; combining heading, pull deveining, peeling, leg removal, EZ-Peel, and sorting in one compact touchpoint. All-in-one processing means a faster path to getting products out the door.

ShrimpWorks® has an easy-to-use digital interface, allowing an operator to quickly change the presentation of the shrimp with the touch of a button. This eliminates cumbersome hardware changes during processing.

ShrimpWorks® measures each shrimp to ensure complete precision processing, reducing hold time and handling. Using the measurement taken of the shrimp, the head is consistently removed at the same location, regardless of the size of the shrimp. Whether it is maximizing chin meat yield or cleaner cuts, precise measurements and customized processing allow you to give your customers the presentation they want.


ShrimpWorks® will measure each shrimp and communicate that measurement to every station. 


ShrimpWorks® uses precise measurements for precision heading with maximum yield.

Peel & Devein

ShrimpWorks® peels and deveins without additives or hold times.

ShrimpWorks® uses precise measurement to ensure that your final product is accurately size sorted.
