Title: Apparatus for processing fur

Abstract: An apparatus includes a tapering mandrel on which a tubular fur can be drawn. The apparatus further includes at least two scraper units having one or more scraper rollers which, during operation and in contact with the skin side of the fur, is arranged to rotate so that scraping elements on the scraper rollers scrape the skin side of the fur on opposite sides of the mandrel. The scraper units include a pressure arrangement to apply to the at least one scraper roller a contact pressure against the skin side, and a damper arrangement for damping the scraper unit movement away from the mandrel. Scraper units may be included on opposing mandrel sides, wherein each unit includes two rollers to act on the skin side with a friction force towards a second part of the mandrel; at least one of the rollers includes one or more V-shaped scraper elements.
