• MVP Takes on Challenging Protein Applications

    M VersaPro Dicer

    NEW MACHINE DESIGN

M VersaPro™ Dicer

Next Generation Protein Powerhouse

  • The new M VersaPro™ (MVP) Dicer provides the best in sanitary design and the ultimate in the versatile cutting of proteins.
  • The MVP offers 33% increased feeding capacity versus the standard M6 due to wider belts, optimized cutting, and increased horsepower.
  • IP69K certified electrical enclosure features a double-sealed door for extra protection during washdowns.
  • A new patented, fluted crosscut option provides gentler cutting action. A deeper circular knife to feed drum penetration produces an improved cutting method.
  • The crosscut is driven by a 5 HP (3.7 kW) motor equipped with a variable frequency drive to allow adjustment of the cut size without the additional expense of changing parts. Other active cutting components are driven by a 5 or 7.5 HP (3.7 or 5.6 kW) motor.
  • 5 or 6" (127 or 152.4 mm) circular knives and spacers are interchangeable to provide expert cutting results.
  • Wider 12" (304.8 mm) infeed and takeaway belts work together to provide even transitioning of product and prevention of product buildup. Takeaway belt facilitates discharging into totes.
  • The mechanical zone is isolated from the product zone to promote sanitation.
  • Available intuitive Allen-Bradley® touchscreen HMI option easily gathers data, monitors machine components including sensors and amperage; adjusts operating speeds, and saves recipes. Touchscreen swivels for full visibility.

Applications

Building on the Urschel Models M and M6, the M VersaPro™ (MVP) Dicer provides the best in sanitary design and the ultimate in versatile cutting of proteins. Available with optional HMI (shown). The MVP offers 33% increased feeding capacity versus the standard M6 due to wider belts, optimized cutting, and increased horsepower. The belt-fed MVP delivers 2-dimensional dices, strips, or shreds from product of a predetermined thickness. The dicer offers infeed and takeaway belts to prevent product build-up. Takeaway belt facilitates discharging into totes. Ideally suited for cutting frozen-tempered, fresh-chilled, or hot-cooked beef, pork, protein alternatives, or poultry. Maximum input product size for firm products should not exceed 1.5" (38.1 mm).

Operating Principle

M VersaPro™ Dicer

  1. Feed Belt
  2. Feed Roll
  3. Drive Roll
  4. Circular Knives
  5. Feed Drum
  6. Stripper Plate
  7. Crosscut Knives (new patented fluted design shown)

Types of Cuts

Dice

Many sizes of cuts are possible by combining the various selections of circular knife spacings with different crosscut knife spindles. Circular range: 3/16 to 1-1/2" (4.8 to 38.1 mm) Crosscut range: 1/8 to 3" (3.2 to 76.2 mm) standard sizes, fully adjustable up to 6" (152 mm) with variable speed crosscut motor.

Strip Cut

Strip cut a variety of widths by removing either the crosscut knife spindle assembly or the circular knife spindle assembly. The final thickness of the strip will be the same thickness as the original product.

Shred

To produce shreds from meat products, the crosscut knife spindle is replaced by a shredding spindle. The length of the shred can be controlled by orientation of the meat fibers of the incoming product and by the use of a circular knife spindle. Many variables can affect the final product; consult an Urschel representative for details.
