KRONEN TIP - Cutting fine strips of leek for the production of leek spaghetti with the GS 10-2
Cutting fine strips of leek for the production of leek spaghetti with the GS 10-2
Aim: Cut leek in in julienne strips
Machines: Belt cutting machine GS 10-2 with the 5 blade disc
Result: The leek is cut in very thin strips
Capacity: Up to 100-200 kg of leek can be processed per hour
Basic conditions for the process are:
- The leeks are halved lengthwise and cut into pieces with a length of 8-10 cm
- The 5 blade disc is inserted into the GS 10-2 and set to a cutting thickness of 1 mm
- The belt speed is set to 40, the knife speed is set to 70 and the downholder is used with maximum pressure (100%)
- The pieces of leek are put on the belt so they lie in a 90° angle to the infeed direction
With maximum pressure, the downholder holds the pieces of leek in place, so that an exact cutting guidance is ensured. Due to the 5 blade cutting disc, even on the side edges only slightly wider strips are obtained.
Thus, the raw product can be optimally exploited. The leek spaghetti can be served e.g. in combination with other vegetables in julienne strips as healthy side dish to different dishes.
