Clean and safe removal of the root of chicory and other long products

The CRC200 was developed especially for the automated processing of chicory (Belgian endive). It ensures efficient, clean removal of the root and separate discharge of good product and waste. 

The chicory is manually inserted into the holders of the specially designed infeed belt and automatically transported to the cutting process in an optimal position. The secured position ensures a clean cut so that only a reduced amount of final cutting is necessary and the number of personnel required is reduced. The speed of the product intake is adjustable, and a maximum of up to 80 chicory per minute can be processed. 

Product requirements:

  • Maximum length of good product: 200 mm 
  • Maximum length of root: 200 mm

On request, the machine can be adjusted to process other long products such as leeks or carrots (top and tail cutting).

KRONEN benefits

User-friendly, safe operation

The design of the machine enables ergonomic and safe work. The CRC200 can be operated by one person, who inserts the chicory into the product holders positioned on a chain.

Clean cutting results

The CRC200 was specially developed for processing chicory and therefore achieves optimal cutting results with a high yield and reduced subsequent cleaning because final cutting by employees is no longer necessary. 

Easy maintenance and cleaning

The large safety cover makes the inside of the machine easily accessible in the area of the knife, which simplifies cleaning and maintenance.
