February: Cut limes into half slices
Machine: TONA Rapid S145 cutting machine
Description:With the TONA Rapid S 145, seedless citrus fruits such as limes, lemons and oranges can be cut into slices and half slices. For this purpose, a V-knife insert with the appropriate cutting thickness is used, which is turned by 90 degrees and used to separate the end pieces of the fruit. Then the limes are placed individually in the product holders and cut into slices and halved in one step. With the gentle cutting process, only a little juice is lost, the product receives a clean cut and the slices are evenly thick. This increases the shelf life of the product.
An optional three-part discharge belt separates the end pieces from the product slices.
up to 4,800 pieces per hour
