Cutting system for extruded toasted flat bread

High-speed cutting of up to six lanes of extruded product.

Usually extruded as multiple strands (up to six), this product can be cut in-line straight after the toasting oven using our Servo-Torq® multi-head rotary cutter system. Extrusion linespeeds of up to 62 m/min are possible, with cut rates exceeding 600 cuts/minute per strand.

Sets of powered stainless steel knurled rollers, one per strand, pull the toasted flat bread "ropes" through the oven & feed them into the cutting machine.

Due to the close proximity of the exit of the oven, heat carry-over can be considerable. For this reason all surfaces on the inlet end of the cutting machine are specially selected for their suitability and left unpainted.

The cutting method used is our standard Servo-Torq® flying knife rotary cutter system. The cutter head is fully enclosed to minimize dust ingress into the cutting area.

Additional dust extraction points are provided under all cutting heads & in-feeder rollers. These can be connected to a central dust extraction system.

The cut pieces are free to exit onto a feed conveyor for in-line packing by a flow-wrapper system.

All equipment supplied is engineered to the highest hygiene standard suitable for a food application.
