Manufacturing process (except when processing cabbage): The product to be processed is positioned manually on the mounted cutting insert. Pressing the buttons activates the cutting process and, depending on the knife used, the product is punched into the appropriate shape. The cut product falls down into a prepared container or onto a conveyor belt.

In the standard version, the PGW XL is a tabletop device; a mobile base frame is optionally available.
