I-Cut 55 superior performance
A few years ago, Cranswick considered replacing some of its IPM portion cutters. They tested them head to head with an I-Cut 55 to investigate performance, accuracy, flexibility and throughput.
With the impeccable accuracy and a rock solid performance throughout the years it turned out that the I-Cut 55 was and still is far superior on all important parameters compared to any other portion cutter available.
Flexible cutting pattern changes
The flexibility offered by the I-Cut 55 has proven a valuable feature in any production that requires the ability to easily change cutting patterns and handle a large variety of products.
On top of these measures, the I-Cut and Marel’s service proved to be second to none. For Cranswick that reliability factor is essential.
After installation, Cranswick has asserted that I-Cut 55 is the best solution for them in order to achieve the best results in their production.
It is also very important to minimize downtime in any operation. The combination of the in-house knowledge among Cranswick engineers and service technicians and Marel’s proven support ensures operational reliability and helps keep the equipment up and running at maximum capacity.
The I-Cut 55 is designed for the accurate portion cutting of boneless meat products, such as beef, pork, veal and lamb. The portion cutter will cut to fixed weight and/or length.
The I-Cut 55 features 360° 3-D scanning, which results in exceptionally accurate and stable measuring results that do not require further corrections from weighing equipment.
