Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

TranSlicer® 2000 Cutter

  1. Product is delivered onto two high speed feed belts [ 1 ] sloping together to form a "V” shaped feed trough.
  2. The belts are synchronized with the rotating slicing wheel [ 2 ] to ensure proper advance of product per revolution of the wheel.
  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. Optional free wheeling or motorized top belts are available if more positive feeding is needed. One slice is made at a time which prevents any crushing of the product. The cut slices are then released into a hinged, discharge chute to reduce their speed before exiting the machine.

Types of Cuts

Slicing Wheels

Flat Slices: 1/32 to 2" (.8 to 50.8 mm) Crinkle Slices: 1/32 to 2" (.8 to 50.8 mm) in thickness with 4-2/3 waves per inch and with a crinkle depth of 1/16" (1.6 mm). Slicing wheels can be converted to crinkle slicing by replacing the straight knives with crinkle knives. A different shear edge must also be used for crinkle slicing.

Microslice® Wheels

Flat Slices: .030 to .240" (.8 to 6 mm) Crinkle Slices: .069" (1.8 mm) thickness with 3-1/3 waves per inch and with a crinkle depth of .080" (2.0 mm) Oval Shred: This shred has an oval-shaped cross section measuring approximately .125" (3.2 mm) thick by .250" (6.4 mm) wide. Julienne Strips: A wide range of julienne strips can be made from firm products. Contact your local representative for more information.

Julienne Wheels

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) are produced by using julienne knives on the slicing wheel.
