GFW 3600


  • Very high level of personnel efficiency due to reduction in manual work
  • Simplification of the manual processes; this means simple training of new staff
  • Consistent grill stick quality

  • High level of productivity thanks to full automation of part-processes (skewer separation and transport, winding and placement)
  • Modular integration in TVI line systems is possible
  • The GFW 3600 barbecue skewer production machine feeds the skewers, winds the meat onto the skewers and discharges them onto a discharge conveyor.
  • The employees focus solely on sliding the belly strips onto the skewers.
  • Firstly, the skewers are separated and fed into the skewer bushings.
  • Then two to three operators on each side of the machine slide meat onto the skewers: That’s it for the manual part of the operation!
  • The winding device winds the meat onto the skewer and then places it onto the conveyor belt.
  • Finally the skewers are transported on a conveyor belt to the dry marinating area.
  • Only the meat needs to be attached; the machine does everything else.
  • The operator can work quickly with both hands: approximately 10 to 12 skewers per employee per minute.
  • New employees learn very quickly thanks to this simple process.
  • 5-7 employees produce as much with the GFW 3600 barbecue skewer production machine as 16 to 20 employees can produce by hand.
