Equipment Snapshot: Urschel has long offered targeted cutting solutions to the global community of leading food processors—adapting to the requirements of individual applications and continuing to grow in the company's engineering and manufacturing expertise through each endeavor. As a result of this adaptive cutting technology approach, Urschel now introduces a new concept in slicing: the MicroAdjustable Slicing Head (SL-14).
For use on the Model CC Slicer, the best-selling potato slicer in the world, the new MicroAdjustable Slicing Head (SL-14) features 14 cutting stations that maximize slice engagement. This increased cutting station design delivers much higher capacities versus the standard, fully-adjustable 8-station cutting head. Switching over to the SL-14 from the standard 8-station head requires no special adapters. The new slicing design concept does not incorporate shims or shoes, and offers toolfree knife changeovers. Weighing in at only 35 lb (16 kg) with built-in lifting handles, the SL-14 is adeptly removed and replaced. This development allows processors the ability to increase productivity without the expense of purchasing an additional slicer.
