Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

Model SL-A Dicer

  1. Product delivered to the feed hopper continues into a rotating impeller. Centrifugal force holds the product against the inside of the slice case as the impeller paddles [ 1 ]
  2. carry the product past the slicing knife [ 2 ].
  3. An adjustable case gate [ 3 ] at the top of the case allows the product to move outward across the edge of the slicing knife. The distance between the end of the case gate and the slicing knife edge determines the slice thickness.
  4. Slices then drop onto a revolving feed drum [ 4 ].
  5. The drum and an opposing feed roll [ 5 ] transfer the slices
  6. to the circular knife spindle [ 6 ] where the product is cut into strips.
  7. The strips then move directly into the rotating crosscut knives [ 7 ]. The crosscut knives produce the final cut of cubes or rectangular pieces, and discharge the finished cut.

Types of Cuts

Slices

Up to 1/2" (12.7 mm)

Dices

Many sizes of cuts are possible by using the required spindles and adjusting the slice thickness:

Circular knives

1/8 to 2" (3.2 to 50.8 mm)

Crosscut knives

1/8 to 3" (3.2 to 76.2 mm)

Strip Cuts

Strip cuts can be made by removing the crosscut knife spindle from the machine. The length of the strips will depend upon the size of the original product.
