The new automatic double-clipper FCA 80 gives an even wider range of customers, including SMEs, easy and “clean” access to the globally successful FCA series of automatic clippers. Developed with the goal of “optimized for the essentials of clipping”, the new FCA 80 is all set to be a winner in the 38 to 160 mm calibre range. Running at up to 125 cycles a minute and equipped with a voiding separator, the machine produces a wide range of sausages – all with clean sausage tails and short sausage shoulders.
To make access to the FCA class easy, the FCA 80 successfully implements the concept “simplicity over complexity”, guaranteeing maximum productivity with basic operation. It closes all fibrous and collagen casings up to a calibre of 120 mm (depending on the material thickness) and plastic casings up to 160 mm. The new machine processes type 15 and 18 R-clips up to a clip size of 18—14, and, should further evidence of its flexibility be required, it also offers spreadings of 26, 30, 36 and 44 mm.
IDEAL FOR SHAPED PRODUCTS THANKS TO OVERSPREADING
The FCA 80 offers “clean access” to the FCA range with uniform pleating of the casing and the voiding separator continuously ensuring there is no meat in the sausage tails. In addition, linear clip closing guarantees a symmetrical clip. Overspreading for loose, air-free filling up to a total voiding distance of 100 mm is already integrated in the standard version of the new FCA 80, which makes this new automatic double-clipper ideal for shaped products.
PERFECT FOR RINGS
A variant of the FCA 80, with double conveyor belt and customised front flap, has been developed specially for ring sausages, thus completing the range of applications.
