FAM Volantis

Cutting Principle

The 24 series slicing wheels, in combination with the selected or programmed speed on the VFD‘s of the feed belts and slicing wheel, will maintain the speed of the product while it is being sliced, without the need of motorized hold-down belts for most of the products.

 

The high speed of the knives combined with the unique cutting method produces uniform slices with a smooth surface and a minimum of breakage and ragged ends, thus increasing the shelf-life of your products.
