With 60, 90, and 125 L bowl capacities, Nowicki KN-60, KN-90, and KN-125 butchery cutters let small meat plants and catering operations produce a variety of meat stuffing products and emulsions, including crumbles and fine-grain fat emulsions — even from raw skins. The cutters can also be used in the production of pet foods as well as confectionery, fish, and fruit products. The cutters’ stainless-steel construction is complemented by hygienic geometry, with all flat surfaces inclined 3° to maximize cleanability as well as polished surfaces everywhere food product contacts the machine. High-quality sausages can be made in the butchery cutters with maximum repeatability for consistency of the end product. The mixing of raw sausage ingredients such as spices is also possible.
SMALL-OPERATION BUTCHERY CUTTER ADVANCED CONTROLS
Nowicki KN-60, KN-90, and KN-125 butchery cutters feature microprocessor-based controls to command the high-speed knife-head cutting rotations as well as mixing rotations with 40 preprogrammed routines. Software monitors machine operation, conducts automatic diagnostic routines, and sounds signals to communicate the machine state to operators. A built-in operator panel is configurable and lets operators change the interface language. Automation of a raw materials unloader and a water dosage system completes the design.
ADDITIONAL SMALL-OPERATION BUTCHERY CUTTER FEATURES
Nowicki KN-60, KN-90, and KN-125 butchery cutters include an array of design features for high performance and ease of use, including:
- A cover that effectively contains the noise of operation
- A head with cutting knives requiring no regulation of distance from the bowl’s inner surfaces
- Blades that “cut in the air” for consistent crumbling of food contents throughout the bowl volume
- Hydraulic loading and unloading systems
- Hydraulically operated front and back bowl covers
- A centralized lubrication system
A variable frequency drive powering the knife-head motor eliminates the potential for stray currents, so machine elements are protected from electrical discharge machining and corrosion. End users have the option to upgrade to a higher-power motor to process heavier product if needed. Perhaps most importantly, the butchery cutters include a complete safety system with an emergency stop for both the bowl drive and the cutterhead drive.
