SPECIAL Application in June: Cutting corn cobs in “riblets” (quarters)

Machine: TONA Rapid S145 adapted to high and long products


Due to their firmness and their shape, fresh corn cobs have special requirements regarding the processing process. A specially constructed model of the TONA Rapid S145 was developed to meet these special requirements, which is ideally suited for segmenting the corn cobs thanks to an enlarged product entry and reinforced blades in the 4-part divider. With the help of the product holders with centering fingers, the corn cobs can be divided lengthwise into even quarters with an optimal cutting result. The corn “riblets” (quarters) are then be packaged and sold e.g. as side dish for barbecue meals.

Capacity: up to approximately 3.600 corn cobs/hour
