Discover the new FAM Volantis Transverse Slicer at FRUIT LOGISTICA in Berlin.

Developed by the specialist in industrial cutting machines for the food industry, FAM will launch this new slicer at the Fruit Logistica starting February 5, 2020.

The Volantis is designed for precise cutting of elongated and oblong products such as cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, green beans, gherkins, okra, celery, potatoes and firm head varieties of lettuce such as iceberg lettuce, radicchio… up to a diameter of 115 mm.

For compressible loose-leaf lettuce varieties such as frisée, oak leaves, rucola and other leafy type vegetables such as spinach, radish, the Volantis will accept products up to a size of 160 mm.

The machine can be fed manually or by any feeding system provided that this system feeds the product to the machine evenly.

The wide infeed channel will perfectly align long, slender products towards the slicing wheel. The more than 2 meters long infeed section will contribute to a better orientation of the product. It will align the product perfectly to prevent it from tumbling while it is fed into the slicing wheel.

Precision cuts in a split of a second

The FAM Volantis Transverse Slicer guarantees your cut quality. The 24 series slicing wheels, in combination with the selected or programmed speed on the VFDs of the feed belts and slicing wheel, will maintain the speed of the product while it is being sliced, without the need of motorized hold-down belts for most of the products.

The high speed of the knives combined with the unique cutting method produces uniform slices with a smooth surface and a minimum of breakage and ragged ends, thus increasing the shelf-life of your products.

Great product flexibility and unparalleled ease of operation

Increased functionality, better process control, customizable cutting list. A compact color touchscreen offers a simplified easy-to-follow operator interface for quick set-up and rapid product changeover.

You can store and select your list of cutting applications, including the exact cutting sizes and speeds, making operations easy even for unexperienced operators.

Integrated and standard Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) offer a precise speed control and maximum flexibility producing different cut sizes.

Designed to reduce the cost of ownership and to increase productivity

The Volantis is the V-belt slicer of the future, designed to reduce your total cost of ownership while increasing productivity.

Improved hygiene and cleaning access, reduction of wear parts, easy-to-replace feed belts, increased output will reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO) and will pay back your investment in this new machine very quickly.
