Operating Principle

Model CD-A Dicer

  1. Product delivered to an opening in the feed pan falls onto a revolving corrugated feed drum [ 1 ].
  2. The drum and opposing feed spindle [ 2 ] transfer product to the
  3. circular knives [ 3 ] where it is cut into strips.
  4. The individual strips are removed from the circular knives by the stripping action of the shear plate [ 4 ],
  5. which also acts as a shear edge for the crosscut knives. The strips of product move directly into the rotating crosscut knives [ 5 ]. This second and final cut produces cubes or rectangular pieces and discharges the product from the dicer.
