A (R)evolution of High-Speed Slicing Technology.
The VC999 SL600

The daily demands of business constantly push for higher efficiency, higher quality, & lower costs. Now common features for industrial processing and packaging systems include high-cleanability and washdown, secured internet connectivity for efficient HMI (human-machine interface) for up/downtime reporting and production reporting... Missing from other slicers are some advantages at which the VC999 Slicing Systems Excel.

VC999 SL600 Slicer


HIGH PERFORMANCE
Experience and innovation for the best results.

Due to the technology used, the crust freezing of the product is eliminated, so that it can be cut at a warmer temperature and with a fresher consistency. The simple and ergonomic handling, as well as the cost-effective maintenance by using standard components, are just some advantages of the SL600. We would like to introduce some of the features of the SL600.

Cutting Speed & Removal
The high cutting chute width of 500mm enables a multi-track cutting. For this reason, rapid cutting is not absolutely necessary. However, cutting speeds of 850 cuts per minute are possible with the SL600.
Due to the servo-driven product guide at the top and bottom, the high cutting performance is also high Easy to cut 2mm.
In order to make the cut portion as gentle as possible, the transport was divided into three strips.

Uncompromising machine safety, uncompromising design

  • Hygienic design for quick, easy and reliable cleaning
  • Tool-free removal of all product-specific parts
  • Protective covers open automatically for quick and easy access

Working Heights
Ergonomic working height for easy manual product loading and automatic line attachment

Standard Parts Construction

  • Standard parts allow quick and cost-effective replacement
  • Downtimes are minimized
  • Spare parts available worldwide

Knife Design and Temperature Ranges
Because of knife design and technology, amazingly wide product temperature ranges can be used.

Cleaning & Hygiene
Due to the one-sided suspension of the knife head housing, the cutting area is very open. Nothing prevents thorough cleaning.
In addition, all belts can be dismantled without tools. The loading belt is at a user-friendly height.

Incredibly Easy Changeovers

  • The assembly / disassembly of the grippers is self-explanatory and any misalignment, due to fixed positions, can almost be excluded.
  • Also, the tool-less cutting edge lock, grippers, and many other parts are exchanged in a snap.
  • The product is guided by means of webs placed on the strips, no additional alignment of separating webs, as is frequently used with other slicers, is necessary.

 

The VC999 SL600 Slicer.

(R)evolutionize Your Production with Nine Highly-Effective Advantages:

1. Warmer Slicing Temperatures - NO crust freezing required!

  • Lower energy costs
  • Less handling/work
  • Products remain the perfect consistency & taste
  • Faster product throughput

2. Wider Temperature Window

  • With other slicers, assuring the exact product temperature is a constant hassle
  • The SL600 operates effortlessly at a wide temperature window, allowing the product to come first
  • Easier Production, No Challenges, Better Taste, and a (R)evolutionary Approach - Simply Better Slicing

3. Precision Product Alignment from Slicing to Packaging

  • Competition: Products are loaded from the side and sliced pushing them against a lateral guide, causing off-centered and ultimately uneven slices
  • VC999: Products are automatically loaded from the rear and sliced in a centered position – independent of their diameter or shape

4. PUSH & DRAG Cutting - a Unique Solution

  • The blade enters smoothly from the center using always the same ratio of downward and lateral force - Push & Drag
  • The constant push-and-drag due to the unique blade geometry assures a smooth and consistent slice quality, Every Time
  • Slice difficult products with less waste, less broken slices, and Increased Yields

5. 500 Millimeter-Wide Slicing Throat!

  • 800 rpm blade speed for a smooth line speed and a high output
  • Slice Examples:
    4 HAMS 100x150mm
    2 Bacon 220 x 45mm
    4 Cheese bars 150 x 100mm

6. Product/Application Change-Overs in Less Than 3 Minutes with No Tools.

  • Less down time
  • Unparalleled production flexibility
  • No tools required for change over

7. Cat Claw Gripper Design for an Easy 15% Higher Yield

  • Patented gripper mechanism
    - Quicker change over
    - No pneumatic connections
  • On clipped products - get up to 2 additional slices per log

8. Off-The-Shelf Parts Policy

  • NO surprises, just fair pricing: buy your own parts of the shelf.
  • You have a choice where to buy.
  • Lower operational costs.

9. Blade Design - Twice as Good, Several Times Over...

  • Twice the standing time due to efficient blade geometry
  • Blade Edge holds sharpness Twice as Long
  • Double the blade lifetime - 8mm Grinding Range, 60 percent more than competitors.
