Jan 4, 2018Urschel releases a new concept in potato slicing
Urschel has released what it calls “a new concept in slicing” with the MicroAdjustable Slicing Head (SL-14). The company said it has long adapted to the requirements of individual applications and developed the new head as a result of this adaptive cutting technology approach.
For use on the Model CC potato slicer, the new slicing head features 14 cutting stations that are designed to maximize slice engagement. This increased cutting station design delivers much higher capacities versus the standard, fully-adjustable 8-station cutting head, Urschel said, and that switching over to the SL-14 from the standard 8-station head requires no special adapters.
The new slicing design concept does not incorporate shims or shoes and offers tool-free knife changeovers. Weighing in at 35 pounds (16 kilograms) with built-in lifting handles, the SL-14 is built to be easily removed and replaced. This development allows processors the ability to increase productivity without the expense of purchasing an additional slicer, Urschel said.
