The USM-S100 onion peeler combines easy operator use with good reliability. The operator has within reach a rotating, mounted display panel with all the important functions at there disposal. Also shown is important information like capacity, number of peeled onions, operating hours and malfunction identification.By means of a singulating chain the onions are transported from the infeed hopper and positioned onto the flights of the transport chain. The operator places the onions in the right horizontal position. The rotating knives top, tail and cutting arms make a horizontal cut around the onions.
At the end of the conveying section the onions are picked up with a double holding-arm system with rotating holders.
This arm is fitted on a rotating structure. During the rotating movement the onion spins around its own axis, whereby a cut over the complete circumference is made. The depth of the cut is also adjustable. During the cutting air is blown into the cut to remove the skin.For adapting the machine to different onion diameters several adjustments are provided. These can mostly be made from outside, even during operation, by means of a hand wheel.
The Sormac air saving technique which is used in the USM-S100, takes care of low energy consumption in combination with a higher peeling quality.
Energy and air saving technology. Up to 40% lower energy and air consumption levels than similar machines.
Ergonomic design at one level, The machine was designed to be on one level so as to make working with, and adjusting, the machine as easy as possible for operators.
