FAM Volantis™, very high precision cutting of elongated and oblong products

The Volantis™ Transverse Slicer, by FAM, is designed for precise cutting of elongated and oblong products such as cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, green beans, gherkins, okra, celery, potatoes and firm head varieties of lettuce such as iceberg lettuce, radicchio… up to a diameter of 115 mm. 

For compressible loose-leaf lettuce varieties such as frisée, oak leaves, rucola and other leafy type vegetables such as spinach, radish, the Volantis will accept products up to a size of 160 mm. 

The machine can be fed manually or by any feeding system provided that this system feeds the product to the machine evenly.


Highlights
- Precise cutting is taken to a higher level
- Designed to reduce the cost of ownership and to increase productivity
- Great product flexibility and unparalleled ease of operation
- Food safety and operator safety.


Features
- Designed for precise cutting of elongated and oblong products up to a diameter of 115 mm. For compressible loose-leaf lettuce varieties and other leafy type vegetables, the FAM Volantis™ will accept products up to a size of 160 mm. The Transversal Cutting Principle allows precise high speed slicing while maintaining an excellent slicing quality resulting in a very long shelf-life for the fresh sliced products.

- The machine can be fed manually or by any feeding system provided that this system feeds the product to the machine evenly. The wide infeed channel will perfectly align long, slender products towards the slicing wheel. The more than 2 metres long infeed section will contribute to a better orientation of the product. It will align the product perfectly to prevent it from tumbling while it is fed into the slicing wheel.

- A compact touchscreen offers a simplified easy-to-follow operator interface for quick set-up and rapid product changeover. You can store and select your list of cutting applications, including the exact cutting sizes and speeds, making operations easy even for inexperienced operators. Integrated and standard Variable Frequency Drives (VFD’s) offer a precise speed control and maximum flexibility producing different cut sizes.

- Improved hygiene and cleaning access, reduction of wear parts, easy-to-replace feed belts, increased output will reduce your total cost of ownership (TCO).
