FoodTools recently released a new and improved two way cheese slicing machine to portion cheese and other dairy products. The 5-JR (since replaced by the 5-W) is a redesign of a proven machine that takes wire grid slicing to a new level by adding a horizontal slice to the typical vertical cut.
The 5-JR is designed to meet dairy production facilities safety and sanitation standards while offering cutting edge efficiency and consistency that directly impacts the bottom line. The 5-JR is rated to portion up to 120 products per hour and can handle a wide range of cheese wheels, blocks, or loaves. The cut pattern is custom to order and various specific and unique portion sizes can be designed. Below is a video showing the 5-JR in action slicing two types of cheese loaves.
