Precision Slicing with Maximum Versatility
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.
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.
Flat & Crinkle Slices: 1/32 to 3" (.8 to 76.2 mm) Crinkle slices have 4-2/3 waves per inch and with a crinkle depth of 1/16" (1.6 mm).
Julienne cuts ranging from 1/2 x 1/2" (12.7 x 12.7 mm) to 2 x 2" (50.8 x 50.8 mm)
.020 to .240" (.5 to 6 mm)
.069" (1.8 mm) thickness with 3-1/3 waves per inch and a crinkle depth of .080" (2.0 mm)
This shred has an oval-shaped cross section measuring approximately .125" (3.2 mm) thick by .250" (6.4 mm) wide.
A wide range of julienne strips can be made from firm products. Contact your local representative for more information.
