SPECIAL application in August: Cutting banana slices

Machine: GS 10-2 Belt cutting machine


 Bananas place special demands on the cutting process because they contain a lot of sugar (high degree of Brix), have a soft consistency and are therefore prone to damage. With its gentle downholding technology, the GS 10-2 belt cutting machine is suitable for processing sensitive products. The peeled bananas are placed lengthways on the entry belt and held in the correct position at the cut edge so that banana slices of different thicknesses (e.g. 5 mm) are produced with the best possible cutting result. The banana slices are then sold frozen or dried as banana chips.
