Operating Principle

Model L-A Dicer

  1. Product delivered to an opening in the feed pan falls onto the outside surface of a feed drum [ 1 ].
  2. A feed roll [ 2 ], located over the feed drum is adjustable to suit product thickness.
  3. This feed roll meshes with the circular knives [ 3 ] to insure a positive transfer of product to the knives. The product is held flat between the drum and roll and forced into the rotating circular knives which cut strips from it. The circular knives engage slots in the surface of the large feed drum, creating clean cutting and separation of strips. The strip cut product is removed from the circular knives by a stripper plate which also acts as a shear edge for the crosscut knives.
  4. Product then moves into the crosscut knives [ 4 ] for the second, and final cut. The crosscut action also discharges product.
