Dutch machine manufacturer Sormac hasn’t been idle. At the Fruit Logistica (booth D07, hall 3.1) in Berlin, the company from Venlo will be presenting three entirely revamped machines. This will boost the potato, carrot and pepper markets.
Pepper corer PO
The renewed pepper decoring machine is a breakthrough in pepper processing. The machine de-stems, cores and cuts peppers both horizontally and vertically (if desired). This makes it the only machine that cuts a whole pepper into cubes. The wedge cutting options have also increased: besides cutting into 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 wedges, it is now possible to cut the peppers into 16, 20 or even 24 pieces. This creates the beautiful slender bell pepper strips that are gaining popularity as a healthy snack.
The core system has also been reviewed. The new system is equipped with sensors, due to which each pepper is measured separately. The length of the pepper determines how far the drill mechanism cuts into the pepper. This leaves the outside of small peppers undamaged whilst the seeds of large peppers are still fully removed. This improvement, in combination with the vacuum extraction of the seed lists, produces an exceptionally clean end product.
The little brother of the SC-940/NextGen centrifuge
The SC-740/NextGen, the little brother of the well-known and beloved SC-940/NextGen that was launched in 2021, can also be seen at the machine manufacturer’s booth. “The NextGen is an extremely stable centrifuge that dries delicate leafy vegetables perfectly in a short cycle time,” says Roy Lemmen, Sormac’s Sales Director.
VeggieLine favorites such as the belt cutting machine, slice and wedge cutter and spiral washer will also be present at the trade show. The VeggieLine product group is known for its versatile and easy-to-use machines.
