The OBM2 carrot topper is a triple-conveyor version offering automated topping and tailing. The carrots are fed onto the middle the belt conveyor, from where they are fed by hand between the drivers located on side belts. The raw material conveyor belt is raised above the belts of the cutting sections. Then the carrots are topped and tailed by a set of rotary disc knives. The OBM2 carrot topper features two cutting sections and a raw material transportation system for topping and tailing. The length of topping can be adjusted.
Next, the produce is transported for further processing e.g. onto a two-way conveyor, from where it gets into pallet containers. The cut off parts are carried away on a waste-material conveyor into appropriate containers. The personnel work stations are located on platforms to ensure maximum work safety.
