Filet Machine After leaving the inspection table, the aloe leaves goes to the filet machine. The filet machine is a device used to separate the rind from the inner gel of the leaf. The name comes from the resemblance of the inner gel to a fish fillet. An alternative to the use of this machine is to hand-fillet the leaf. The advantage of using a machine is the lower cost of operation in terms of labor, but a disadvantage is that the yield may go down as compared to hand filleting.
