Applications

E TRANSLICER® CUTTER

The E TranSlicer® Cutter (METRS) accepts firm products up to 4" (101.6 mm) in diameter and leafy-type, compressible products up to 6" (152.4 mm) in diameter. Optional static hold-down, non-powered top belt, or powered top-belt hold-down assemblies are available to maintain positive feeding assistance.

Interchangeable stainless steel cutting wheels include: slicing wheel, patented MicroSlice® wheel, and julienne wheel. The number, placement, degree of pitch, and type of knives coordinate with the cutting wheel and feed belt speed to determine the size of cut. The unique MicroSlice delivers ultra-thin slices for popular applications such as cassava and taro chips. The machine features continuous operation for uninterrupted production.


E TRANSLICER® BIAS CUTTER

Newly developed parts transform the ††E TranSlicer® Cutter (METRS) from standard slicing to either 35 or 45 degree bias flat or crinkle slicing. Available when ordering a new machine, or as a retrofit kit for E TranSlicer machines in the field.

Once retrofitted, switching over from straight to bias slicing is accomplished in as little as 10 minutes. Designed for hand-fed, batch processing (running at 30 Hz) equipped with a ßMicroSlice® or slicing wheel set-up. Product is fed through a top chute that delivers product to the slicing wheel to produce bias slices. Infeed product should not exceed 2.5" (63.5 mm) in diameter.
