- FAM Centris centrifugal slicing technology for potato chips delivers on promises
FAM, a company entirely dedicated to cutting solutions for the food industry, has developed the innovative, patented FAM Centris™ product line to counter some of the key issues frequently encountered during the production of potato and vegetable chips.
Top of the line is the SureSet 16 cutting head, the result of extensive R&D and adjustments based on feedback by customers. Tested and in production since 2015, the SureSet 16 cutting head exists of 9 patented and patent pending technologies.
The FAM Centris™ product line for the centrifugal slicing of potato and vegetable chips has proven to result in better ROI and lower cost of ownership.
Better Quality, More Capacity
The FAM Centris SureSet 16 Cutting Head delivers better quality and more capacity
- Up to 50% less scrap produced by slicing
- Up to 30% less starch loss
- Nearly no tapered slices
- No thick cap ends
- Reduced oil uptake
- Reduced labor cost
- Proven lifetime of 12-24 hours (for FAM's in-house produced quality knives)
- 4 times more capacity than with the current system with 8 knives
Consistent and Stable
Next to the SureSet cutting heads the other key element of FAM's SureSlice technology is the DualStage impeller.
The DualStage impeller guarantees that quality is never compromised and assures knife stability without any need for adjustment while processing.
How does it work?
- You set the SureSet dial on the cutting head to meet your thickness requirement. You can change this quickly as needed.
- The DualStage impeller keeps the potato free of shifting at all times.
- Added bonus: two potatoes can be sliced simultaneously, which increases the capacity without sacrificing quality.
