Versatile and with a high output: up to 4,000 kg of product per hour cut precisely and gently

The GS 20 is used for cutting, pulling/shredding and grating an extremely wide variety of products in large quantities. The multifunctional machine can flexibly cut many types of food products: lettuce, vegetables, fruit, herbs, meat, cold meats, fish, vegan substitute products and baked goods. Just like the GS 10-2, it is therefore ideal for a wide range of applications and sectors. It processes even higher capacities: depending on the product and cutting type, up to 4,000 kilograms of product per hour. 

Prior to processing, the right knife for the product is installed. The cutting thickness is infinitely adjustable from 0.5 to 50 mm. The hold-down pressure and the knife and belt speed are then set. The product is prepared for cutting, e.g. cored, peeled or segmented, before being placed on the 250 mm-wide infeed belt depending on the cut intended. Next, it is cut precisely and gently thanks to optimized hold-down technology and product guidance. The cut product can be ejected into a container underneath the knife box or optionally conveyed via a discharge belt for further processing.

Versatile application options:

The cutting machine can be used flexibly for various applications, for example:

  • Cutting iceberg lettuce into strips or shreds
  • Cutting lollo rosso lettuce into pieces
  • Cutting cabbage into strips or shreds
  • Grating carrots or cutting them into sticks or slices
  • Cutting cooked chicken breast into slices
  • Cutting cabanossi or bockwurst sausage into slices
  • Cutting cooked meat into strips or pulling it apart to make "pulled beef"
  • Cutting or shredding fish, for example salmon
  • Cutting or shredding vegan meat substitutes
  • Cutting bread rolls or baguettes
  • If slicing is performed directly in the field, the GS 20 can also be mounted on harvesters.

The GS 10-2 belt cutting machine is suitable for capacities up to 1,500 kg per hour. If cubes are required, the KUJ-V cube, strip & slice cutting machine can be used as an alternative.
