FTNON – A perfectly sliced productTogether with some leading companies in the salad industry Food Technology Noord-Oost Nederland B.V. (FTNON) in Almelo/Holland has developed a completely new system for slicing a large variety of salads.
Until now salads were sliced with the help of rotating slicing wheels, with high speed. In this case the forces exerted on the product are very high. The possibility arises that the product will be damaged or bruised. However, the new slicing machine of FTNON has oscillating knives which slice the salad products with high speed. Hardly any forces are exerted on the products.
With this new system the risk of damages or bruises is considerably reduced. The result is a perfectly sliced product, on which is exerted hardly any force. Visually attractive. Elevated quality to the point of consumption with prolonging freshness.
