Types of Cuts

Dices

Many sizes of cuts are possible by combining the various selections of circular knife spacings with different crosscut knife spindles.

Circular cuts

5/32 to 1-1/2" (3.2 to 38.1 mm)

Crosscut cuts

1/8 – 3" (3.2 – 76.2 mm); standard sizes, up to 5.66" (144 mm) available with alternate gearing.

Strip Cuts

Strip cuts in a variety of widths can be made by removing either the crosscut knife spindle assembly or the circular knife spindle assembly. The final thickness of the strip will be the same thickness as the original product.

Shreds

To produce shreds from meat products, the crosscut knife spindle is replaced by a shredding spindle. The length of the shred can be controlled by orientation of the meat fibers of the incoming product and by the use of a circular knife spindle. Many variables can affect the final product; consult an Urschel representative for details.
