The knives will then be pushed downward slicing through the pumpkin completely. The knives then retract upward, the locking device on the hinged gate beneath the pumpkin disengages and allows the gate to open and the pumpkin segments to fall onto the discharge conveyor below to be conveyed away.
The hinged gate closes and the door opens allowing for the next cutting cycle. All covers and guards have safety pneumatic interlocks fitted. Made from stainless steel and food grade plastics to ensure a long trouble free life.
Other pumpkin processing equipment is available—please ask for brochures.
