The operator takes the onions out of this hopper and puts them one by one in the right horizontal position in the conveying section. From this point, the onions are transported for further processing. The rotating knives top and tail the onions and the cutting arms make a horizontal cut around the onions. At the end of the conveying section, the onions are picked up with a double holding-arm system with rotating holders. This arm is fitted on a rotating structure.
For adapting the machine to different onion diameters several adjustments are provided. These can mostly be made from outside, even during operation, by means of a handwheel.
The capacity of the machine is 60 onions per minute. By means of the frequency converter, the speed can by easily reduced.
The USM-S60 can peel onions with a diameter of 55 – 120 mm. For smaller (40 – 60 mm) and larger (80 -140 mm) diameters adjusted executions can be supplied.
Depending on diameter, shape and quality the USM-S60 onion peeler can handle maximal 3.600 onions per hour.

Direct mounted inspection table
The inspection table can be mounted directly on the onion peeler. The spiral-shaped transport rollers rotate the onions enabling these to be inspected from all angles.
Platform for working at an ergonomic height.
The waste auger collects the waste from the onion peeler and (if required) the optional inspection table and takes this to a central point for further transport.
