Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

AFFINITY® Dicer Cutting Overview

  1. Product delivered to a feed hopper enters a rotating impeller. Centrifugal force holds the product against the inside of the case. Impeller paddles (1)
  2. carry the product past the slicing knife (2).
  3. An adjustable slice gate (3) at the top of the case determines the slice thickness.
  4. Slices pass between the rotating feed drum (4)
  5. and feed roll (5),
  6. then enter the circular knives (6) where they are cut into strips.
  7. The strips pass directly into the crosscut knives (7) where the final cut is made.
  8. The stripper plate (8) removes product from the spaces between the circular knives and acts as a shear edge for the crosscut knives.

Types of Cuts

Slices

1/8 to 3/4” (3.2 to 19.1 mm)

Dices

A slicing knife, circular knife spindle, and crosscut knife spindle are used for dicing. Changing the dice size is done by adjusting the slice thickness, variable frequency drive, and cutting spindles as needed.

Circular Knife Spindle

1/8 to 2” (3.2 to 50.8 mm)

Crosscut Knife Spindle

1/8 to 2” (3.2 to 50.8 mm)

Strip Cuts

Flat strips can be made by removing either the crosscut knife spindle or the circular knife spindle. Combinations of circular knives or crosscut knives can be used to shorten the length of the strips. 1/8 to 2” (3.2 to 50.8 mm) in length.
