Ketchum’s new air driven automated tattooer allows the operator to efficiently and properly tattoo a large number of pigs. The unit uses Ketchum’s 101 style ear tattoo characters that are 6 mm (1/4”) tall. The automated system will work on piglets 2 days to 2 weeks of age. The characters can be changed by removing a cover and opening our traditional lever lock system. The Automated Tattooer operates under air pressure at 80 PSI. The unit comes with a bracket that allows easy mounting to most carts used to process piglets. There is an adjustable slide that allows for adjustment in height or unit up to 10” that facilitates easy operation.
