Urschel continues to lead the way on with new cutting technology with the Model CC series for slicing chips/crisps, shredding hash browns, other vegetables, and cheese with their new SL-14 and SH-14 MicroAdjustable® Slicing and Shredding Heads.
These new all stainless heads deliver maximum cutting action with 14 cutting stations, almost doubling the capacity.
Special features include quick-change knives and improved thickness setting to maintain strict tolerances and offer longer knife life.
In these times of COVID-19 when companies are running with minimal essential employees, these heads do not require expert experienced operators to get the perfect slices.
Capital purchases are a serious investment. When a company looks into upgrading, replacing, or starting a new line with what appears to be the latest technology, a closer examination is advised.
A machine may make the necessary cut with the parts supplied with the initial new machine, but tolerances of change parts and replacement parts are critical in the long-term performance of the machine.
Urschel stresses quality in manufacturing, not only in the fit and finish of the initial inestment, but in every part manufactured.
Urschel continually invests in new production technology, in order to provide the same quality to customers.
