BONES. A small Swedish firm has no more need to fish for complimentsfollowing its invention of the world''s first automatic bone remover for fresh salmon.As Exos managing director Anders Tärnström explains, filleting fish with machines is easy. But until now, in the eight hours after a fish has died it has only been possible to remove the small pin bones by hand, with the aid of a tweezers or pliers."Pulling bones out by hand is expensive and can cause workplace injuries," said Tärnström.The product developed by Exos grips the bones at exactly the right angle to avoid breakage, he added."The entire process takes just four seconds."In the development phase, Exos received a helping hand from business incubator Uppsala Innovation Centre (UIC)."We have had to build an international company from the ground up. UIC found us a coach who had the right profile and knew what to do. We estimate being able to sell around 1,000 machines. They each cost amillion, so that will be a billion in all," said Tärnström.The company aims to begin selling its pioneering pin boner this summer.
