Strip cutting made easy
The Marel STC StripCutter is an easy-to-use portioning machine that cuts fixed-sized portions at high speed. It cuts your non-frozen products into strips, splits, steaks or diced portions, and is available in 600 and 1000 mm belt widths. You have a vast range of cutting options as a result of easy adjustment of both speed and product width.
How it works
The infeed conveyor brings the product to the cutting section for accurate portioning size. To minimize giveaway, it is important to position the product correctly at the infeed conveyor. This can be done by using laser indication or stainless steel pointers. The products, which are prevented from moving during cutting, will be delivered on the outfeed conveyor in fixed-sized portions, all ready for packing.
The cutting is carried out by a series of circular blades mounted on a rotating shaft. The distance between the blades determines the size of the portions.
