A dedicated slicer for cheese applications has been introduced by Norwich-based Thurne, which is based on the company’s compact Polyslicer 1000 platform.

The new slicer has been optimised to provide efficient cheese slicing and features a range of cheese specific components and blades that reduce friction and, therefore, product build up. This is said to provide better slice thickness control and ensure high quality product presentation.

The machine is available with both orbital and involute head, enabling slicing of stacked (<100mm) and shingled retail packs at high speeds. An optional interleaver, which can be added as a retrofit if required, supports multi-lane interleaving of shingles and stacks up to 80mm at speeds of up to 700 slices a minute.

​Our Interleaver works differently from other systems,” says Chris Howard, vice president for sales. “The product and the interleaving material are cut by two separate cutting mechanisms, enabling us to choose the product blade best suited to the hardness and texture of the cheese to be sliced.”
