Scope: This machine was designed and built to customer requirements. Our customer manufactures a meat product that is about 48 inches long. They needed a machine that would cut the 48 inch long pieces into ten pieces with a maximum piece length of 4 3/4 inch without wasting material or creating dust. We traveled to their location and brainstormed with them for a few days before coming up with an acceptable concept. We then, designed, built, tested and delivered the cutter in a little over 30 days. The cutter cycles about every three to four seconds and cuts about 86,000 pounds of product per day. Because of increased demand, we have since built two additional cutters for the same customer. The second and third cutters have a quick change cartridge that allows the product to be cut into different lengths.

Below are some pictures of the cutter (click to enlarge the pictures).
