Dutch machine manufacturer Sormac, a market leader in Fresh convenience, 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 and carrot market.
Potato halving and quartering machine DMA
The potato halving and quartering machine has undergone numerous updates. It has a continuous processing system, which means less maintenance and a higher capacity. The machine is also equipped with an innovative aiming system. This ensures that the potatoes are perfectly aligned before they are sliced, resulting in a smoother end product. The machine can be equipped with cutting dies that chop potatoes into 2, 4 or 8 pieces. The dies are removable and easily exchangeable. The final new feature is a folding transport roller. Small parts that fall between the rollers are now discharged with each rotation of the aligning rollers.
Revolver peeler for baby carrots CRR
The updated revolver peeler is Sormac’s answer to a request for better cleaning possibilities of the machine. The machine’s drum is equipped with a folding roller, which makes it easy to clean the inside of the drum, especially the conveyor screw. A patent has been filed for this unique system. The rapid assembly and disassembly of the rollers, of course, remains. The Sormac revolver peeler was already known for the extremely small distance between its rollers (< 4 mm), which makes the machine very suitable for peeling baby carrots.
