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.
