Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

Model OC Crosscut Bias Slicer

  1. Product is fed onto a conveyor belt [ 1 ]
  2. which carries the product to the slicing wheel [ 2 ].
  3. Knives [ 3 ] under tension serve as spokes and support the rim of the slicing wheel. The knives are slightly twisted to create a uniform pitch from the hub to the rim. Knife pitch serves to pull product through the slicing wheel and produce a precise slice thickness. One slice is made at a time which prevents crushing of the product. The cut slices are then discharged from the machine.
