The system uses a high-speed camera and processing system that is able to adjust the thickness of each slice to improve first time on-weights, which helps reduce rework rates and improves overall yield due to less giveaway.

A new control system provides the processing power to support the IBS1000 Vision’s slicing accuracy even at the highest blade speeds. It comes with enhanced on-board diagnostics and production data capture.

The IBS1000 Bacon Slicer complies with ready to eat hygiene standards and uses a high yield, semi-automatic gripper feed, providing slice thickness control and product presentation. The slicer is loaded manually via a fast reload mechanism with automatic butt end removal, which, paired with high blade speeds up to 1,650rpm, enables the slicer to surpass throughputs of 1.8 tonnes/hour.
