Slicer line equipment for maximum productivity

We offer the right inline equipment for every sliced product application. So that you can achieve perfect slicing results and maximum yield for your production. The MULTIVAC product measuring system determines the distribution of the product volume so that the required slice thickness can be calculated precisely and the target weight can be achieved. In weight-optimized slicing, it is necessary to capture the exact portion weights. This is done via the checkweigher, which precisely transmits the weight to the slicer control. Their portioning processes run seamlessly, cleanly and consistently for maximum availability - even at high production volumes.

MULTIVAC Slicing Line Equipment

VS product measuring system

Thanks to our product measuring system, even naturally formed products such as raw ham, bacon and cheese can be portioned with precise weights, while minimizing giveaway.

Benefits of the MULTIVAC VS product measuring system

  • Determines the distribution of the product volume before the cutting process

  • Precise calculation of the target weight for the optimum slice thickness

  • Measured results independently of the track for each product

  • Even naturally formed products such as raw ham, bacon and cheese can be portioned with precise weights, while minimizing giveaway

MULTIVAC Slicing Line Equipment

CW checkweigher

One of the essential prerequisites for slicing with optimum weight control is capturing the exact portion weights. This is used to comply with legal weight requirements and to minimize giveaway. The checkweigher determines the precise weight of each portion and transmits this information to the slicer's machine control, allowing the portion weights to be optimized continuously.

If a combination checkweigher is used, multi-track applications do not require conversion.

Benefits of the MULTIVAC CW checkweigher

  • Precise determination of the weight of each portion and transmission to the slicer's machine control so that weights are optimized

  • Capturing the exact portion weights is the prerequisite for slicing and minimizing giveaways with optimum weight control

  • Complying with legal weight requirements

  • Selection of an extensive range of possible combinations of weigher and rocker (from a single weigher with a single rocker to a quadruple weigher with a single or quadruple rocker)

MULTIVAC Slicing Line Equipment

RO rocker

The rocker, following the checkweigher, ejects portions detected with incorrect weight out of the product flow by deflection of the particular rocker conveyor. This can be done in different positions: facing downwards into a container and upwards onto a correction track, which transports the portions for correction to the loading position of the packaging machine.

The following combinations are possible:

  • Single weigher with single rocker

  • Double weigher with single or double rocker

  • Triple weigher with single or triple rocker

  • Quadruple weigher with single or quadruple rocker

  • Combination checkweigher, double and triple, with single or triple rocker

  • Combination checkweigher, triple and quadruple, with single or quadruple rocker


Advantages of the MULTIVAC RO rocker

  • Precise determination of the weight of individual portions and transmission to the slicer#s machine control so that weights are optimized

  • Capturing the exact portion weights is the prerequisite for slicing and minimizing giveaways with optimum weight control

  • Complying with legal weight requirements

  • Selection of an extensive range of possible combinations of weigher and rocker (from a single weigher with a single rocker to a quadruple weigher with a single or quadruple rocker)

Quality of involute blade & knife maintenance

  • Robust involute blade for the highest level of precision

  • Complete flexibility with smooth cutting with different toothed edges

  • Increase in durability with dedicated knife maintenance

The finest knife technology and the best care

Reliable components with precise and durable blades are at the heart of our slicers. In addition, a "gentle cut" ensures that the product is sliced smoothly, in a controlled way and with minimum pressure. This means that food, especially meat and cheese products, can be sliced exceptionally precisely, and the slicing action is very gentle on the product.

The MULTIVAC portfolio offers you a wide range of involute blades - smooth and with different toothed features. This enables the product to be matched perfectly to the particular product. The highest quality options for blade maintenance extend the lifespan of the blades for consistent quality - while minimizing overall costs.

Our slicers are easy to operate. Thanks to line integration, you can maximize the automation of your processes without increasing your personnel. Line-integrated MULTIVAC slicers, therefore, enable maximum high speeds to be achieved for the highest possible output - even at the highest production volumes.

Optimized throughput and a high level of availability, as well as rapid product changes, contribute significantly to reduced overall costs and the cost-effectiveness of your overall process.

Your benefits with MULTIVAC

Our Sustainable Liquid Interleaver contributes to sustainability

Plastic or paper interleaver films between the slices are now a thing of the past. Today, MULTIVAC Sustainable Liquid Interleaving ensures that the end user can easily take the individual slices out of the pack without sticking. The operating principle is quite ingenious and perfectly tailored to the particular product characteristics: a liquid food release spray is applied evenly via atomizing nozzles to the underside of the slices so that their adhesion is reduced. Show your environmental awareness and actively reduce waste with this material-saving solution.

  • They reduce waste and avoid microplastics

  • When refilling the machine, there is a time saving of 95 percent

  • You benefit from a cost advantage of 85 percent with the food release agent

  • Your slicer blades have a longer service life

  • They require less storage space

  • The inter-separating medium is odorless and neutral in taste, also available in organic quality
