" Easy Cube" Dicing Machine (patented model), designed
and manufactured by BlockfooD Srl can produce diced tomatoes and
vegetables in general.
this project Blockfood proposes to make a machine that can satisfy
large production capacities combining operating simplicity with
rapid size change.
Increasingly more often the production of companies interested in
this type of machine must satisfy, during the production period,
requests for different products with different cube sizes.
why the BlockfooD "Easy Cube" Dicing Machine was created.
fact, thanks to an automatic system, Easy Cube can change the required
cube cutting size in a short time.
The machine, made with the classic rotary system with 3 cutting
stations, has a rotor, fed by a hopper, that brings the tomatoes
to the first blade by centrifugal force.
First Cutting Station determines
the thickness of the cube to be obtained. This blade, arranged tangentially
to the rotor walls, intercepts the product and takes portions of
preset size from it. The blade is integral with a system that allows
it to be adjusted to change the slice thickness, according to particular
Second Cutting Station determines
the width of the cube to be obtained, cutting into strips the portions
of product sliced in the first station. This station is characterized
by three blade-holding shafts, each with a fixed cutting size, for
example 10, 15 and 20 mm, linked to a turntable. This turntable
is shaped so that it brings only one blade-holding shaft into the
cutting position leaving the remaining supports inactive.
Third Cutting Station determines the length of the cube to
be obtained, cutting the strips formed in the second station into
cubes/parallelepipeds. This station is characterized by a star rotor
fitted with blades arranged on the edge of the star, rotating at
a preset, previously adjusted, speed. This star rotor makes the
cut varying the size of the cubes by varying its rotation speed.
machine can be set up to have the Second cutting station equipped
with only one cutting size on all the blade-holding shafts, so that
companies requiring only one cutting size are spared annoying and
costly production down-time in the event of machine breakages caused
by foreign bodies. In this case all that needs to be done to restore
the machine's operativeness is to bring another blade-holding shaft
into the cutting position.
