Key Features

  • Extremely precise centrifugal cutting principle with new and innovative patent pending cutting head technology.
  • The razor sharp knives and new, innovative cutting head technology ensure a perfect cut quality, long lasting accuracy and very low waste ratio.
  • The 100% stainless steel cutting head has a weight of 8 kg and a reduced amount of parts which improves clean-ability and simplifies assembly considerably.
  • Rigid, seamless welded frame with no flat surfaces. Limited number of bolts used and no exposed threads.
  • Large in-feed provides uniform product flow to the cutting head and avoids overloading of the head.
  • Trapped key interlocking safety system prevents access to the cutting area during machine operation.
  • Operator-friendly machine in-feed, designed for hand-batch feeding and good working conditions for the machine operator.
  • Modular open sub-frame without dead corners that is fully power-wash appropriate and lightweight.

Cutting Principle


The product is fed through the in-feed chute and enters into cutting compartments of the rotating impeller (*). There, it is held against the inner surface of the cutting head assembly (*) by centrifugal force.

The cutting head assembly (*) consists of twelve individual stationary cutting stations. Slices or shreds are produced as product passes each knife in a smooth and uninterrupted manner. Length is controlled by the input product size. The cut product is collected through the central discharge.

The interchangeable cutting heads (*) offer flexibility in all cuts and shapes with a variety of products such as flat, crinkle cut and V-shaped slices as well as V-shaped, oval, julienne and wide ribbon-cut strips.
