K+G Wetter: New 120-litre Vacuum Bowl Cutter for rapid loading and emptying
Vacuum bowl cutters are the ideal solution for any area of sausage production where there is a need for better processing of the meat, longer shelf life and firmer and more compact sausages. One essential feature of the new 120-litre Vacuum Bowl Cutter (VCM 120) by K+G Wetter is the two-section vacuum lid. This technical solution means that instead of raising the entire vacuum lid, merely the front part needs to be raised. In this way the operator gains access to the cutter bowl easily and significantly faster and production times can be reduced.
This smart solution for the lid is built into the Vacuum Bowl Cutter of the Cutmix range with a capacity of 120 litres. This range has a smaller vacuum space, which means that valuable time is saved in the production process. The bowl cutter is designed primarily for butcher's shops and small industrial companies.
New touch panel
In addition, K+G Wetter has developed a touch panel for its trade bowl cutter range. It is intuitive to operate and the overview of the functions is ideal – which is a great advantage for training employees to use the machine. The new operating panel can also be configured to suit individual customer-specific needs. The standard version of the touch panel has digital displays for knife shaft speed, temperature measurement, and bowl revolution with controllable immediate automatic cut-out functions. For all its bowl cutters in the Cutmix range K+G Wetter offers the option of the software solutions 'Cutvision' and 'Cutcontrol' for recipe management and quality management; these are also operated via the panel.
Clean and compact solutions
The new 120-litre Vacuum Bowl Cutter has extensive access for cleaning. It is also easy to clean underneath the bowl, which takes a great deal of time in the case of numerous other machines. There is plenty of space and all areas of the bowl cutter are easily visible to allow cleaning to be checked visually. Water and detergents can be used in specific areas – also underneath the cutter bowl. K+G Wetter has made sure that the new 120-litre Vacuum Bowl Cutter is built in a very compact way in order to provide room in a limited space.
In addition, the massive machine stand made of grey cast iron absorbs any vibration very effectively and ensures that the Cutmix range machines run quietly, with good sound insulation and are extremely stable, thus also ensuring a long service life for the machines. The knife cover has a removable wall so that the cutting area can be adjusted according to the sausage being processed. An electric knife shaft brake protects the motor and the machine’s support.
