Product groups


For peeling, cutting, washing and drying products – up to 400 kg/h

In the semi-automatic processing line, the product is first pre-trimmed, cored or otherwise prepared. It is subsequently placed onto the belt of the cutting machine, where it is cut and then falls into a collecting container. An employee pours the product into the washing machine, where it is washed or treated. After the washing process, it is placed into spin baskets situated on a basket carousel. Another employee places the filled baskets into the spinners one after the other. The product can then be further processed.

Professional preparation at the trimming table, precise and continuous cutting with the GS 10-2 and effective yet gentle washing and spinning produce excellent end results. Cleaning the line is particularly easy as no conveyor belts are used.

  1. Preparation: Trimming table for 4 people and HGW manual grid cutter with base frame
