TranSlicer® 2510 Cutter    Flat slices up to 3-1/2" (76.2 mm). Optional circular vertical knife assembly can be used for halving large potatoes lengthwise for precutting prior to shredding and other processes.

Model CC    Crinkle and Flat Potato Slicer - Potato processing equipment to produce 1/32 to 1/8" (0.8 to 3.2 mm) plain or crinkle slices for potato chips and flakes. Parts are available for slice thickness up to 1/2" (12.7 mm). Approximate hourly capacity of 1/16" (1.6 mm) slices: 2,000 lb (900 kg).

Model G-A    1/4, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 5/8, or 3/4" (6.4, 9.5, 11.1, 12.7, 15.9, or 19.1 mm) cubes or french fry cuts, and pieces such as 1/4 x 3/8 x 1/2" (6.4 x 9.5 x 12.7 mm) or 1/8 x 3/4 x 3/4" (3.2 x 19.1 x 19.1 mm). Capacity is 18,000 lb (8,000 kg) of 3/8" (9.5 mm) cubes or strips hourly. Remove circular knife spindle to produce french fry cuts. Potatoes must not exceed 5-1/4" (130 mm) in length for correct feeding to ensure highest yield of uniform, full size strips. Suggested feed rate for french fry cuts with maximum length is lower because of orientation.

Model GK-A    Use this machine to produce all smooth cuts listed for the G-A Dicer as well as cuts with 2 or 4 crinkle sides by proper selection of slicing and crosscut knives. Crinkle French fry cuts will have overall cross sectional measurements of 11/32, 7/16, 1/2 or 9/16" (8.7, 11, 13 or 14 mm). Capacity and specifications are otherwise similar to the G-A Dicer. Note: Installation of the circular knife spindle with knives spaced at 1, 1-1/2 or 2" (25, 38 or 51 mm) may be desirable if French fry cuts of uniform length are necessary for packaging or portion control.

Approximate hourly capacity of 3/4" (19 mm) cuts: 25,000 lb (11,000 kg). Note: G-A, GK-A and H-A Dicers can be used as slicers only by removing the circular knife and crosscut knife spindles and installing an inner discharge chute. Capacities will be the same as shown for dicing or strip cutting.
