The WOS-1A carrot topper and piece cutter consists of a number of chain-mounted flights, one base plate and 2 aligning belts with a knife platform.
The singulated carrots are placed between the flights either by hand or are fed from a peeler e.g the Sormac knife peelers type KP-60/HS and UP-8000. The aligning belts transport the carrot firstly to the left and then to the right against a guide plate, where they are topped or tailed depending on orientation. In the last operation the carrot is also cut into pieces. The tops and tails exit the machine separate from the final product.
The static knives and special positioning system offer a clear square cut without waste. The guide plate and top size are adjustable from 12 to 29 mm (0,47″ – 1,14″). In the standard execution the carrot is sliced into 50 mm (2″) pieces. Other lengths are available on request. The hinged slicing knives are easily removable.
Adjustable height and a hinge mounted control panel make it possible to adjust the machine to the optimum working position.
