Applications

The TranSlicer® 2510 design combines the production-proven features of the 2500 with today's industry-driven demands. The TranSlicer 2500 Cutter revolutionized the leafy vegetable industry when it was introduced in 1995. The TranSlicer 2510 Cutter replaces the TranSlicer 2500 Cutter in the Urschel line-up with valuable features to ease maintenance, increased positive product flow, and decrease operational costs. The new machine accepts the same types of products: input of compressible food products up to 8" (203 mm) in diameter, or firm, round products such as cabbage up to 6-3/4" (171 mm) in diameter (larger cabbage heads if cut in half).

The TranSlicer 2510 offers:

  • New, larger discharge chute simplifies product flow and reduces product damage.
  • Increased accessibility with more hinged compartments and panels ease maintenance and reduce cleaning time.
  • More sloped surfaces including redesigned electrical enclosure and bottom feed pan to simplify cleaning.
  • All stainless steel motors including dynamic brake used on the cutting wheel motor that enables the motor to smoothly stop.
  • Quick feed belt release levers simplify servicing and belt changeovers.
  • Additional stop button conveniently positioned opposite the electrical enclosure.
  • Sturdy stainless steel guardlocks permit opening of access panels after all moving parts have come to a complete stop.
  • Positive product feed and increased yield results from overlapping belt guards with optional lead-ins and belt slide extensions. These components help guide product on a clear path to the cutting wheel.
  • Replaceable feed belt guide supports offer cost-savings by eliminating the need to replace an entire assembly.

The TranSlicer 2510 may contain parts protected by U.S. Patent Nos. 5896801 and 6460444 and by European Union Patent No. 0759837B1.

Dimensional Drawing

Operating Principle

TranSlicer® 2510 Cutter

  1. The model TRS 2510 utilizes two sets of high speed feed belts sloped to form a "V” cross section [ 1 ]. Product delivered to the first set of belts is oriented and accelerated for passage to the second set of belts.
  2. The second set of belts are synchronized with the cutting wheel [ 2 ] to insure proper advance of product per revolution of the wheel. Top belt assemblies are also available to assist in feeding product.
  3. Slightly twisted knives [ 3 ] (Julienne knives shown) placed under tension serve as uniform-pitched spokes positioned between the hub and rim. The pitch, number of knives and belt speed maintain the advance of product which determines cut thickness. 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

Flat Slices

Flat slices ranging from 1/32 to 3-1/2" (0.8 to 88.9 mm) can be produced by using standard knives on the cutting wheel. Knives must be evenly spaced around wheel, three knives minimum.

Julienne Cuts

Julienne cuts ranging from 3/8 x 3/8" to 3 x 2" (9.5 x 9.5 mm to 76.2 x 50.8 mm) can be produced by using julienne knives on the cutting wheel.

Shreds

Shred cuts ranging from 3/8" (9.5 mm) to approximately 3" (76.2 mm) in length and 1/32 to 9/32" (.8 to 7.1 mm) in slice thickness can be produced by using a combination of julienne and slicing knives to make up the shredding wheel. Identical knives must be evenly spaced around the wheel to maintain correct balance.
