The broccoli trimmer can be supplied as a stand-alone system or it can be fully integrated with infeed hoppers and outfeed conveyors for a complete broccoli handling system.
So, whether you are individually wrapping broccoli or processing into loose-pick trays the Tong broccoli trimmer offers to bring improved efficiency, consistency and safety to your broccoli handling operations.
The broccoli trimming machine from Tong is designed to offer the gentlest handling of broccoli heads. Featuring a 400mm wide smooth, plastic modular or endless PVG belt conveyor with crop location holes to hold the broccoli heads carefully and securely in place for trimming. A 300mm wide waste conveyor runs under the cutting area to effectively receive waste stalk once cut.
SAFE CONCEALED BLADE
Tong’s broccoli trimmer features a unique blade changing and maintenance programme which ensures complete operator safety. The user cannot come into contact with the moving blade at any time unless the machine is in a ‘safety-stopped’ condition. Even then, to remove the blade, the main machine guards must be opened and a blade-guard must be fitted before the blade can be removed from the machine. This means any access within the cutting area is exceptionally safe. The blade is only ever accessed under controlled cleaning, maintenance or blade-changing situations.
Built with minimal maintenance in mind, the Tong broccoli trimmer is designed to make cleaning and maintenance quick and easy, resulting in minimal downtime and optimum productivity.
The advancements in Tong’s Auto-Touch HMI touch-screen controls not only means that the broccoli trimming machine is very easy to use, but it also gives the user intelligent information on the machine’s throughput and maintenance status. What’s more, the safety module within the trimmer’s controls means that the guarded blade area cannot be accessed unless the machine is set to a ‘safety-stopped’ condition in the control panel after a password in entered, ensuring ultimate safety and peace of mind.
