The latest addition is the Weber 905, which features a wide cutting throat and a speed of up to 2,000 slices per minute.

The 905 is capable of slicing six 100mm logs or four 135mm cooked hams simultaneously with optimal results and exact portion weights achieved through its six-track check-weigher which controls the weight of every portion. In combination with the Weber Food Robot (WFR), the portions can be hygienically and automatically loaded into a packaging machine.

The high capacity slicer is loaded with sausage, cheese or ham products up to 3,200mm in length. Logs, as well as sensitive or difficult shaped products, are fed automatically side-by-side or separated. Short loading times and the 2,000 cuts per minute make the new 905 a particularly productive slicer.

Other features include a movable idle cut head which assists in maintaining high yield and minimum give-away. The fully adjustable blade head housing and shear bar enables the Weber slicer 905 to continuously cut perfect slices without wedges, tear-offs or feathering, even if the blade is in intensive operation. It can accommodate greater product temperature variation.

The company says the doors can be opened easily with safety ensured through a pneumatic locking mechanism. The operator controls slicing functions via an ergonomically designed touchscreen. The stainless-steel construction of the Weber 905 features an hygienically sealed body and improved product transport. Belts are said to be easy to change and the machine is prepared for cleaning in minimal time.

The slicer is said to deliver exceptional economy when combined with Weber's log-lift loader, scanner and portion control system, as well as the optical and hygienic checkweigher. Various presentation styles are possible through the Weber portion designer, stacking unit or slice folding system. In line with Weber Food or Pick Robot, multi-overlapping and multi-layer packs can be created within a minimum floor space.
