Ultrasonic slicing eliminates smearing and shedding

05 December 2016

Traditionally, mechanical blades have considerable limitations when cutting certain food products – particularly delicate, filled or layered products. Ultrasonics offers a solution that utilises high frequency sound waves, generated through a cutting tool that oscillates at around 20,000 times per second (20KHz). 

The sound waves are concentrated and evenly distributed along the leading edge of the cutting tool to create an effective cutting system. 

Newtech Ultrasonic slicing solutions are available with a choice of 1000W or 2200W ultrasonic generators, which is advised for cutting productions with greater densities. The generator is housed in the rear control panel and provides the power to a titanium cutting tool via a transducer and booster.

Variable amplitude settings enable the optimum cutting of products with variable density and consistency, and problems such as smearing and shedding, which are common with other cutting solutions, are eliminated.
