EQUIPMENT
KEY CONSIDERATIONS
WHEN SELECTING
DICING AND SLICING
EQUIPMENT:
* What raw materials need cutting at
what capacities?
* What temperature are the raw
materials when being cut?
* What cut size and shapes are
required?
* Does equipment conform to
hygienic design standards?
* What upline and downline
equipment integrations are required?
* Test prospective equipment on
products prior to purchase.
" The need for versatility
of cutting equipment is critical
for brands to address the
dynamic nature of the industry's
growth needs, " White
said.
and essential to ensuring continuous operations that can
weather the dynamic world of pet food. "
The physical properties of certain ingredients also
present challenges for dicing and slicing equipment.
" Some applications, such as hard frozen meats like
" The ongoing supply
chain and labor challenges
have created an environment
that is disrupting the ability
of manufacturers to produce
the incredible volumes necessary
to meet the growing
demand, which leads to the
absolute necessity of high
capacity cutting equipment
that will not only stand up to
the 24/7 production schedules
but also continue to
produce high-quality product over the long term. Due to
these factors, automation and smart integration with new
and existing production environments is non-negotiable
liver or lung at subzero temperatures for freeze-drying,
may present some challenges, " Jacko explained. " It may
present risks such as damaging knives or breaking belts,
for example. Urschel takes the time to analyze each application
and work with customers to overcome obstacles.
Extruded products, in comparison, are usually cut
at hotter, higher temperatures, so that presents different
challenges. A good place to start with these applications
is a free-of-charge test cut. Test cutting is available inperson,
live remotely, or via video. "
Maki agreed that the wide range of ingredients used
in pet food and treat production presents several challenges
for processors.
" The main issue facing our customers is all the different
types of treats, " Maki said. " If they are slicing whole
muscle (chicken breast, pork, beef, etc.), they need a
Dramatically reduce maintenance
and downtime costs.
Rarely in the industry is a system introduced that dramatically reduces maintenance
costs and downtime like the Extru-Tech self-adjusting Die/Knife Cutter Head Assembly.
Key features include:
* Automated self-adjusting
* Replaceable individual cutter blades
* Self leveling on the full spectrum of plates
* Dramatically reduce unscheduled downtime
* Lower overall cost with self-adjusting system
