Cutting machine used to slice bananas

Monday, 09 August, 2021 | Supplied by: Kronen

Bananas place special demands on the cutting process because they contain a lot of sugar (high degree of Brix) and have a soft consistency that is prone to damage.

With its gentle downholding technology, the GS 10-2 belt cutter from Kronen is suitable for processing sensitive products. Equipped with a conveyor belt of 125 mm width, the machine has a range of cutting accessories available for a range of applications.

In the banana application, the peeled bananas can be placed lengthways on the entry belt and held in the correct position at the cut edge so that banana slices of different thicknesses (eg, 5 mm) are produced with the best possible cutting result.

The belt cutting machine is suitable for salad, vegetable, fruit, herbs, meat, fish, sausage, bread, cheese, nuts and many other applications. Features include: sloping surfaces; modern hygienic design; knife box with optimised ejection (products remain undamaged during unloading process); downholder technology for exact cuts without damaging the product; and safety interlock system on knife box for work safety.

Once processed on the belt cutting machine, the banana slices can then be sold frozen or dried as banana chips.
