IFFA Platform For Launch of New Weber Slicer

IFFA Platform For Launch of New Weber Slicer

Interfood returned to IFFA 2016, the biggest shop window for developments in the meat industry in the world to support the leading manufacturers for whom Interfood is the distributor in the UK and Ireland. Amongst the new launches at the show was a new addition to the Weber range of slicers.

Weber slicers start with the entry level 305 a highly flexible and cost effective machine in a small footprint. At the top of the range of slicers from Weber is the 905 having a slicing throat capable of cutting up to 620mm wide.  The latest addition to the range is the S6 offering high performance in a compact design which makes it ideally suited to applications where space is limited.  Despite a machine width of only 1,300mm, the S6 offers an extra-wide slicing throat which can accommodate products up to 500mm wide.  This capacity, plus many of the integrated features within the S6, had previously only been available on machines requiring a much larger area in which to operate.

It features Weber’s involute blade, a durable and precise blade technology, which is produced at Weber’s own in-house blade facility.  It can operate with all Weber blade sizes, from the R365 through to the largest R515.

The open design of the S6 utilises some of the design principles of the already highly successful 906 series to ensure excellent visibility along with fast cleaning and optimised changeover times.  Combined with its compact footprint, this makes it a flexible and highly efficient solution for many applications.

Ease of operation and maximised machine uptime is ensured through a quick-change system, requiring no tools, for the blade, the shear bar and the gripper head. The new, fast in-line loading system optimises loading times and ensures secure transport of the product.

Also new from Weber were 2 new Compact Loaders – the CCA-400 and the CCA-500 – both incorporating Weber’s high speed in-feeding technology.  Like the S6, the design is based on a compact footprint, with a modular approach to ensure the loaders are fully adaptable to meet a wide range of applications.  Again, easy access and optimum hygiene are ensured through an open design for the two models which operate with packaging machine film widths of up to 590mm.

Other innovations on show at IFFA included demonstrations of on-line data capture featuring full line integration to allow opportunities for full line analysis and live data capture. This can include every line component, from the slicer to the end of line packaging equipment, thereby enabling live efficiency monitoring and yield analysis in real time.
