FAM Centris™ 400P

FAM has developed the innovative Centris™ 400, a new high-capacity centrifugal slicer & shredder with a high-quality execution at an attractive price.

It is particularly designed for companies looking for perfect cut quality, long shelf-life, flexibility, speed and capacity. The Centris™ 400 offers a very economical operating cost. It is quick and easy in use and is equipped with a new, reliable and low-maintenance Direct Drive System.

The patent pending cutting head technology guarantees a consistent slice and shred thickness throughout the slicing process. Its unique design considerably facilitates the changing of blades, handling and cleaning.

All these innovations are part of the groundbreaking NECST™ concept - which stands for Next Evolution in Centrifugal Slicing Technology - developed by FAM and Stumabo.

The Centrifugal Slicing and Shredding Principle improved by FAM

A number of new patents and innovations lead to improved ways of centrifugal slicing and shredding. Here's how it works:
  • The product is fed through the in-feed chute and enters into the cutting compartments of the rotating impeller (*). There, it is held against the inner surface of the cutting head assembly (*) by centrifugal force.
  • The cutting head assembly (*) consists of 12 individual stationary cutting stations. Slices or shreds are produced as product passes each knife in a smooth and uninterrupted manner. Length is controlled by the input product size.
  • The cut product is collected through the central discharge.
  • The interchangeable cutting heads (*) offer flexibility in all cuts and shapes.
