Bettcher New meat trimmers introduced
The new product line represents the latest offering from the company. Among these trimmers’ benefits are their lighter weight and faster blade speed for improved cutting efficiency. Blade changes are faster, tool reconfiguration is available on many models, and all trimmers will attach to any Bettcher motor.
“With manpower shortages being such a significant issue in the meat industry today, processors need more help than ever to capture every extra ounce of yield while relying on fewer workers to make it happen,” explains Patrick Grabovac, Bettcher’s product marketing manager. “Our new Quantum Flex trimmers provide help in a big way because faster blade speeds translate into improved yields, which helps make the productivity of line operators better,” he notes.
The equipment delivers a smoother tool operation with less vibration, thanks to a newly designed blade/housing interface. Bettcher’s patented design enables the tool operating loads to be distributed over more surfaces, even as it lowers the loads applied by the pinion onto the blade and housing-bearing surfaces. The dual bearing surfaces are highly durable, even when operating at higher speeds.
