FAM’s New Centrifugal Shredders are Cut Out For the Job

FAM, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of cutting solutions for the food industry, expands its offering for the cheese industry with the launch of  three new centrifugal shredders for cheese. With this yet further expansion of the product range, FAM strengthens its reputation as cheese expert.

The trio enables cheese processors to focus exactly on the features they find most important. They are operator friendly and versatile, as cut shapes can be changed in a matter of minutes thanks to the interchangeability of the lightweight cutting heads. They offer improved consistency of shreds and have a low cost of ownership as the throw-away blades are inexpensive.

The FAM Centris 400C was developed with the smaller and mid-sized companies in mind. The FAM Centris 400C Optitec and FAM Centris 400C Hytec offer significantly increased shredding capacity with unmatched cut quality, thanks to the TurboTorque Technology. The latter shredder has the highest level of hygiene available on the market, as is proven by the USDA Dairy Division Acceptance. Both were designed for cheese processors looking to make optimal use of limited floor space. They increase productivity while minimizing costs and maximizing profits.

All three shredders are powered by the new patent pending SureShred 16C cutting head, the first ever cutting head to receive USDA Dairy Division Acceptance. The SureShred 16C features the Set & Forget technology. It can be preset so the shred size remains consistent no matter what. No adjustments or measuring tools are needed, even after cleaning.

Whether the cheese is hard or soft, sticky or dry, whether you are cutting in V-shreds, oval shreds and/or crescent shreds, the SureShred 16C has proven to result in better cut quality. It consists of 16 cutting stations, increasing capacity. To diminish the stress on operators, it is made out of high quality, lightweight material. FAM also developed a newly designed grating head that can be used with the new centrifugal shredders. The grating head is capable of cutting a new variety of shreds, increasing the cutting versatility and reducing the number of machines needed in your production line.

Complete line solutions

With the new product launch, FAM proves once more that it did not steal its reputation as cheese expert. For decades, FAM has been developing and selling the best cheese cutting solutions available on the market. The dicers FAM Hymaks, FAM Flexifam 5.5 and the shredder Deville FS 40 have convincingly established their added value in the cheese industry. It has led to a customer base for FAM that includes, amongst others, the six largest cheese processors in the USA.

FAM recently expanded its partnership with Deville Technologies, a Canadian based client-centric company supplying solution-based manufacturing technology for the food industry. Deville Technologies has a special focus on cheese, allowing customers to buy complete cheese cutting solutions with a simple and compact design: they increase capacity while needing a minimum of floorspace. All line components,  such as conveyor belts, precubers, vibratory feeders and powder dispensers are easy to use and easy to clean. Deville Technologies is the exclusive North American distributor of the cutting edge cutting machines of FAM. FAM is the exclusive European distributor of the full line cheese cutting solutions of Deville Technologies.
