Applications

Engineered to produce continuous precision slices with extensive detail given to key elements throughout the machine, it joins the production-proven TranSlicer series in the Urschel line-up. The E TranSlicer is ideally suited for elongated vegetables, fruits, and cooked meats.

The E TranSlicer accepts firm products up to 4" (101.6 mm) in diameter and leafy-type, more compressible products up to 6" (152.4 mm) in diameter.

A variety of interchangeable stainless steel cutting wheels offers maximum versatility: slicing wheel, ¥patented MicroSlice® wheel, and ‡julienne wheel. The machine features continuous operation for uninterrupted production.

Elements found throughout the design include:

  • Stainless steel materials; machine size designed to fit easily into existing processing lines.
  • Newly designed cutting wheel mount/holder assembly allows simple wheel changeovers.
  • Hinged/sliding panels offer full access to all key areas of the machine and simplify maintenance and washdowns.
  • Sloped surfaces throughout the machine including a self-draining frame ease cleaning
  • Sanitary design with all mechanical components completely separate from the food zone.
  • Simple to use integrated electrical enclosure features circuit breakers instead of fuses and a brake motor button that releases the brake to facilitate maintenance.

Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

E TranSlicer® Cutter

  1. Product is delivered onto two high speed feed belts [ 1 ] sloping together to form a "V” shaped feed trough.
  2. The belts are synchronized with the rotating slicing wheel [ 2 ] to ensure proper advance of product per revolution of the wheel.
  3. Knives [ 3 ] under tension serve as spokes and support the rim of the slicing wheel. The knives are slightly twisted to create a uniform pitch from the hub to the rim. Knife pitch serves to pull product through the slicing wheel and produce a precise slice thickness. Available hold-down assembly enables increased positive feeding if needed. One slice is made at a time which prevents any crushing of the product. The cut slices are then released into a sloped discharge chute to reduce their speed before exiting the machine.

Types of Cuts

Slicing Wheels

Flat & crinkle Slices: 1/32 to 3" (.8 to 76.2 mm) Crinkle slices have 4-2/3 waves per inch and with a crinkle depth of 1/16" (1.6 mm). Slicing wheels can be converted to crinkle slicing by replacing the straight knives with crinkle knives and using a different shear edge.

MicroSlice® Wheel Flat Slices

.020 to .240" (.5 to 6 mm)

MicroSlice Wheel Crinkle Slices

.069" (1.8 mm) thickness with 3-1/3 waves per inch and with a crinkle depth of .080" (2.0 mm).

MicroSlice Wheel Oval Shred

This shred has an oval-shaped cross section measuring approximately .125" (3.2 mm) thick by .250" (6.4 mm) wide.

MicroSlice Julienne Strips

A wide range of julienne strips can be made from firm products. Contact your local representative for more information.

Julienne Wheels

Julienne cuts ranging from 1/2 x 1/2" (12.7 x 12.7 mm) to 2 x 2" (50.8 x 50.8 mm) are produced by using julienne knives on the slicing wheel.
