Each company in the meat processing industry has different needs and requirements when it comes to day-to-day work. K+G Wetter offers the right solution with its cutters for industrial applications, which guarantee consistent quality in the 200, 360 and 550 litre sizes even if there is a wide range of products. K+G Wetter will showcase the 200 litre vacuum cutter VCM 200 at this year’s Agroprodmash. The machine dazzles due to its advanced vacuum technology and technical details that are specifically adapted to meet the requirements of industrial meat processing.
Like all the Cutmix series produced by K+G Wetter, the 200 litre vacuum cutter follows the same proven design principle – a grey cast iron stand lined in stainless steel with a complete design. This basis guarantees stability and operating smoothness over its entire operating life. Thin sheet-metal cladding, which can act as a disruptive resonator, was consistently not used. Of course, all machines comply with current standards and are checked for safety and hygiene by the Meat Industry Insurance Association.
Due to product diversity, a cutter that is capable of producing both top-quality large and small batches is much in demand in industrial manufacturing processes. The retractable baffle plate with the resulting variable cutting chamber enables the operator to adapt the cutters to the material to be processed at any one time. Respective knife systems also optimise the cutting result. A raised bowl edge prevents low-viscosity products from being discharged. The machines remain clean during the cutting process. A clear benefit in terms of hygiene.
SOLUTIONS FOR HYGIENE AND SAFETY
All units, such as the electrical control system and vacuum pump, are integrated in the machine stand of the VCM 200. The machine is operated and monitored via a centrally positioned touch panel. Maintenance work is reduced to a minimum due to the use of automatic central lubrication. In addition, the machine status is immediately readable via the operator control module. The continuous bowl drive ensures a high level of variability and ideal feeding rate of the sausage meat without a backlog. Switch-off functions for temperature, bowl rotations and runtime offer the best conditions for safe production processes. As an added option, the software solution CutVision for quality management and CutControl for recipe management are available for all cutters in the Cutmix series produced by K+G Wetter.
ADVANCED VACUUM CUTTER FOR TRADE
K+G Wetter has also created advanced solutions for trade cutters, which combine functionality and easy operation. The new 120 litre vacuum cutter impresses in terms of the simplicity of its complete design. The split vacuum lid, which is used for extremely fast loading and unloading, is a key feature. In addition, the vacuum chamber of this series has been reduced – this also saves valuable production time. The new cutter is primarily designed for butchers and small industrial companies.
