Formax PowerMax500 Slicing System

Monday, 05 December, 2016 | Supplied by: MULTIVAC Australia Pty Ltd

Formax’s PowerMax3500 is a mid-sized slicer featuring upper and lower infeed drives. With a modular design that allows the system to be configured for single drive bulk slicing or more complex operations, the slicing system gives users the option of up to three AccuPower independent product drives.

By slicing each log separately, the feed rate adjusts to maintain weight control of each portion. Variances in log lengths can also be accommodated within a given slicing load. When slicing larger or heavy products, the upper and lower infeed drives provide slice consistency, integrity and increased yields up to 1–2%, according to the company.

An automated clean-up position and open design provides food safety and sanitation. The safety laser scanner technology produces a hygienic environment with minimal mechanical guards, reducing cleaning times and resulting in a smaller effective footprint.

The centre rear loading system can be loaded from the side or the back. The lift system then pivots the product into the staging area just below the slicing grip line as the previous logs are finished being sliced. Once the slicing is complete and the grippers are retracted, the lift-to-grip system moves the logs into position.

The slicing system is available in 1.2 and 1.6 m models. Fast, easy changeovers to different products enable the slicing of round, square, rectangle and D shapes. The optional PowerScanner can slice natural and irregularly shaped products.

A wide range of blade profiles, edge serration patterns and coatings make it suitable for most slicing applications.
