Sormac to showcase revamped machines at Fruit Logistica

Dutch machine manufacturer Sormac will present three revamped machines at Fruit Logistica in Berlin.

The event will be held Feb. 7-9, 2024. 

Potato halving and quartering machine DMA
The potato halving and quartering machine has undergone numerous updates. It has a continuous processing system, which means less maintenance and a higher capacity. The machine is also equipped with an aiming system to ensure that the potatoes are aligned before slicing.

The machine can be equipped with cutting dies that chop potatoes into two, four or eight pieces. The dies are removable and easily exchangeable. Another new feature is a folding transport roller. Small parts that fall between the rollers are now discharged with each rotation of the aligning rollers.

Revolver peeler for baby carrots CRR
The updated revolver peeler is Sormac’s answer to better cleaning possibilities. The machine’s drum is equipped with a folding roller, which makes it easy to clean the inside of the drum, especially the conveyor screw. A patent has been filed for this unique system.

The rapid assembly and disassembly of the rollers remains. The Sormac revolver peeler was already known for the small distance between its rollers (less than 4 millimeters), which makes the machine suitable for peeling baby carrots.

Pepper corer PO
The renewed pepper corer de-stems, cores and cuts peppers both horizontally and vertically and increases edge cutting options. Besides cutting into 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 wedges, it is now possible to cut peppers into 16, 20 or even 24 pieces.

The core system has also been reviewed. The new system is equipped with sensors, due to which each pepper is measured separately. The length of the pepper determines how far the drill mechanism cuts into the pepper. This leaves the outside of small peppers undamaged while the seeds of large peppers are still fully removed. 

The little brother of the SC-940/NextGen centrifuge
The SC-740/NextGen, the little brother the SC-940/NextGen, can also be seen at the machine manufacturer’s booth.

“The NextGen is an extremely stable centrifuge that dries delicate leafy vegetables perfectly in a short cycle time,” Roy Lemmen, sales director for Sormac, said.

VeggieLine favorites, such as the belt cutting machine, slice and wedge cutter and spiral washer will also be present at the trade show.
