Cutting rather than pressing
The Fruit Cutter uses a system of rotating blades and so avoids forcing the fruit through stationary cutting knives. The pieces of fruit are laid in a specially-developed tray by hand. This tray ensures that the fruit remains in the same position during cutting. Once the fruit is in the tray, it is first cut lengthways. Then the tray rotates a quarter turn and the fruit is cut across (in a fan shape).
Ovals and fingers
One of these cutting movements can also be left out. The fruit can then be cut into ovals or fingers. Unpeeled muskmelon is particularly suited to this. And pineapple fingers can also be cut with the Fruit Cutter.
Improved shelf life
The external force that is exerted on the fruit is kept to a minimum due to the cutting action of the rotating blades. No pressure is exerted on the fruit, so it retains more of its juice. Once the fruit has been cut into pieces, the tray is carefully transferred to a conveyor belt. In this way, the cubes of fruit are subject to as little processing damage as possible, and are ready to be weighed and packed.
