The FAM Centris™ product line for the centrifugal slicing of potato and vegetable chips has proven to result in better ROI and lower cost of ownership. Tested and in production since 2015, the SureSet 16 cutting head exists of 9 patented and patent pending technologies.

This next evolution in centrifugal slicing technology will be showcased during an Innovation Stage at Snaxpo (Wednesday March 14th at 11am), during Snaxpo (Atlanta, March 12-14) in booth 327 and at Anuga (Cologne, March 20-23), hall 10.1, booth E060.

4 times more capacity

FAM, specialized in cutting solutions for the food industry, developed the innovative, patented FAM Centris™ product line to counter some of the key issues frequently encountered during the production of potato and vegetable chips. Top of the line is the SureSet 16 cutting head, the result of extensive R&D and adjustments based on feedback by customers. The results are significant: by using the patented SureSet 16 cutting head in combination with the DualStage impeller, customers witness up to 50% less scrap during slicing, up to 30% less starch loss, nearly no tapered slices, no thick end caps, reduced oil uptake and reduced labor cost. Most impressive numbers: the combination of SureSet 16 and DualStage impeller offers four times more capacity than the current systems with eight knives and the inhouse made quality knives have a proven lifetime of up to 12-24 hours.

One of the customers using the FAM Centris product line is Jorn Remmem, Director of Plant Operations and Engineering at Old Dutch Foods. “For decades there have been no innovations in cutting technology for potato chips. The solutions offered by FAM were as a breath of fresh air. We are still impressed with the difference in both quality and performance”, he says. “There’s lower scrap rate, less starch loss and nearly no tapered slices. Our process is more stable: less variability and better yield. We are able to produce more product at a higher quality”

Next to the user-friendly SureSet 16 cutting head and DualStage impeller that fit on all common brands of centrifugal slicing machines, the FAM Centris™ product range consists of an ever-expanding range of blades in all cutting shapes and sizes and mid & high capacity low maintenance centrifugal slicing machines. It is based on the innovative R&D concept NECST™ (Next Evolution in Centrifugal Slicing Technology.
